The latest free agent move for the 49ers comes in the form of running back. Not long after word broke that former 49ers running back Carlos Hyde signed with the Browns, Adam Schefter reported that Jerick McKinnon signed a four year deal with the 49ers.
One of the most surprising deals of free agency will be Jerrick McKinnon's with the 49ers: It is expected to be a four-year deal worth $30 million — an average of $7.5 million per year, per source.
