Former Sprayberry, Georgia Southern star Jerick McKinnon agrees to deal with 49ers


The writing was on the wall following the Minnesota Vikings' disappointing loss to the Philadelphia Eagles in last season's NFC Championship.

"I want to be the guy". And who knows-perhaps he could flourish as a feature back. "It worked out well, but I want bigger and better things for myself".

The Vikings' starter at running back in 2018 is expected to be Dalvin Cook, who suffered a season-ending torn ACL in the fourth game last season. McKinnon at the 2014 combine ran a 4.41 in the 40-yard dash and ranked in the 95th percentile or better among running backs in the vertical jump, broad jump and bench press.

The San Francisco 49ers have agreed to a four-year deal with free-agent running back Jerick McKinnon, according to multiple reports.

Adam Schefter reported that McKinnon's four-year deal will be worth an average of $7.5 million per year, calling it "one of the most surprising deals of free agency".

As the lead back in San Francisco, it's reasonable to expect and uptick from the roughly 12.5 touches per game he's averaged over the last two seasons, but we're unlikely to see him approach the 20-touch range. Which is a little interesting considering he never played his best as a starter in Minnesota. It looks as though the 49ers will give him that chance.

The 49ers' starting running back from last season, Carlos Hyde, is reportedly signing with the Cleveland Browns, so McKinnon should have a shot at a larger role in San Francisco.

McKinnon thanked the Vikings' organization and his former teammates in a series of tweets Wednesday. However, the Vikings might ask him to take a pay cut and release him if he doesn't.
