  49ers | Quartet of RBs for San Francisco?    Sat Mar 16, 07:12 PM

San Francisco 49ers RB Tevin Coleman is expected to lead what could be a group of four active running backs on game days this season. Coleman and fellow RBs Jerick McKinnon, Matt Breida and Raheem Mostert would comprise the foursome.

Footballguys view: It's going to be a cluster you-know-what for Fantasy GMs. We'll have to see how much of the workload Coleman gets and how the touches are split between the guys behind him before we know how to project this RB corps.

  49ers | Dee Ford financial details    Sat Mar 16, 11:54 AM

Updating previous reports, San Francisco 49ers LB Dee Ford's five-year contract has a base value of $85 million and a maximum value of $87.5 million, with $45 million in guaranteed money. The deal can turn into a one-year, $20.5 million pact, with $19.75 million in guaranteed money due by next week. The remaining $25.25 million in guaranteed money is for injury only, with $13.65 million becoming fully guaranteed April 1, 2020. If the 49ers cut Ford after the 2019 season, they would take a salary cap hit of $6.4 million. If he remains with San Francisco for the full length of the contract, he would earn base salaries of $14.5 million in 2020, $16 million in 2021 and $17 million each during the 2022 and 2023 seasons.

Free-agent RB Raheem Mostert re-signed with the San Francisco 49ers on Friday, March 15, agreeing to a three-year contract. Financial terms of the deal were not immediately disclosed.

Footballguys view: The 49ers have a cramped running back room now that they've acquired Tevin Coleman in free agency and are keeping Mostert. Jerick McKinnon, who missed all of last year with a knee injury, could be on his way out. The 49ers also have Matt Breida in the mix to compete for snaps and touches.

  49ers | Trent Taylor finally healthy    Fri Feb 22, 09:15 PM

San Francisco 49ers WR Trent Taylor (back) said he expects to have a much more productive offseason now that he is completely recovered from his back injury. 'I think that's just such an advantage to be able to only think about building your body up with no limitations going on,' Taylor said.

Footballguys view: Taylor was a fifth-round pick out of Louisiana Tech for the 49ers back in 2017. He caught 43 passes as a rookie but that number fell to only 26 catches in 2018 as Taylor made it through 14 games. So long as QB Jimmy Garoppolo is healthy, the 49ers passing attack could be quite robust.
