49ers to sign RB Jerick McKinnon, per report


It is unclear at this point if McKinnon, a duel-threat as a runner and pass catcher, will act as a feature back, or split time with up-and-comer Matt Breida.

A source said that running back Jerick McKinnnon, who spent the past four seasons with the Vikings, will sign a four-year, $30 million contract with the 49ers on Wednesday's first day of free agency.

Over the past two seasons, McKinnon has contributed 1,109 rushing yards on 309 carries with five touchdowns.

Despite playing second fiddle to Peterson, McKinnon registered 444 yards from scrimmage while averaging 5.2 yards per carry. In 2017, McKinnon hauled in 51 receptions for 421 yards and two touchdowns.
