  49ers | Quartet of RBs work out for 49ers    Tue Oct 9, 05:56 PM

Free-agent RBs Shane Vereen (Saints), Charcandrick West (Chiefs), Andre Ellington and Matt Dayes (Browns) worked out for the San Francisco 49ers Tuesday, Oct. 9.

Footballguys view: The 49ers are clearly looking for running back help. Matt Breida is going to miss Week 6 against the Packers, so the team should turn to Alfred Morris as the starter. We should see fullback Kyle Juszczyk get involved as a receiver out of the backfield.

  Jaguars | Pair of RBs work out for Jags    Tue Oct 2, 06:05 PM

Free-agent RBs Orleans Darkwa (Giants) and Matt Dayes (Browns) worked out for the Jacksonville Jaguars Tuesday, Oct. 2.

Footballguys view: It's interesting that Darkwa hasn't found a new spot yet. He had 751 yards rushing for the Giants just last year. The Jaguars may need some help at the position with Leonard Fournette (hamstring) banged up.

  Browns | Ankle injury stops Matt Dayes    Thu Aug 30, 09:50 PM

Cleveland Browns RB Matt Dayes (ankle) exited the preseason game against the Detroit Lions with an ankle injury Thursday, Aug. 30, and won't return. Prior to exiting, Dayes rushed eight times for 77 yards and a touchdown and caught two passes for 34 yards.

Footballguys view: Dayes has been very good in the preseason the last two years, but the Browns depth at running back might give them a reason to let Dayes go. If they do, he'll be a strong candidate to be added elsewhere.

  Browns | Matt Dayes unlikely to make roster    Sat Jun 23, 12:33 PM

Cleveland Browns RB Matt Dayes likely will not make the 53-man roster this season unless there is an injury at the position during training camp.

Footballguys view: A seventh-round pick out of NC State last year, Dayes flashed a bit during training camp last year but he averaged a poor 2.6 yards per carry during the 2017 regular season. Too small to be a featured back (5'9" 205 pounds), Dayes needs to prove he should stick around as a change-of-pace back for the Browns. They're a bit stacked at the top of the depth chart with both Carlos Hyde and rookie Nick Chubb competing to be the featured back in 2018.
