Agent RB Jerick McKinnon to leave Vikings for 49ers

Already in-house, San Francisco has undersized scat back Matt Breida along with 2017 preseason hype candidate Joe Williams and Tampa Bay castoff Jeremy McNichols. We'll have to see what Kyle Shanahan can do with him.

After it was reported that Carlos Hyde will sign with the Browns on a three-year deal, the 49ers agreed to sign running back Jerick McKinnon to a four-year deal worth $30 million, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. His athleticism, intelligence and attitude are a ideal fit for our scheme. "We can't wait to get them on the field with their teammates and coaches later this spring". After scoring a touchdown on the ground against the Saints, he averaged 4.0 YPC and caught 11 passes for 86 yards against the Eagles, leading the team in both rushing and receiving yards. Richburg started at left guard his rookie year with the New York Giants in 2014 before switching to center, and he missed the remaining 12 games last season after sustaining a concussion.

The signing also means San Francisco should be moving on from Carlos Hyde, the starter for the last three seasons when healthy. The Niners signed Garoppolo to a five-year deal last month before he even hit free agency, signed cornerback Richard Sherman after he was cut by Seattle, re-signed defensive lineman Cassius Marsh and offensive lineman Garry Gilliam and gave an extension to receiver Marquise Goodwin.

A dual-threat running back who is equally risky as a ball-carrier as he is catching the ball out of the backfield.

But as is often the case in the National Football League, once the details rolled in, the deal doesn't seem almost as outrageous as initial reports seemed to indicate. But he's a solid option out of the backfield that can also help in the passing game.
