The four highest-paid running backs in the NFL for the 2018 season are set to be Le’Veon Bell, Devonta Freeman, LeSean McCoy, and … Jerick McKinnon? That’s where we’re at after the 49ers agreed to sign the running back to a four-year, $30 million contract Wednesday, according to ESPN.

This is absolutely great for us and probably bumped him up to fourth round compensation pick. I expect that he's going to get cut with in 2 years or they're going to ask him to renegotiate his contract. No team is going to pay someone that probably is better off splitting times that amount of money

Loved Jet on the Vikings. He got knocked around so much each game but always seemed to hop right back up. That being said, I'm glad someone else is paying him that kind of money because we can get similar production from a late round RB.

wow, the 49ers overpayed. Decent back but surely not worth that kind of money.

Jerick McKinnon was the third-best running back on the Vikings last year.

He is now the 4th highest-paid running back in the league.

Mind-boggling.

Yes. Money talks. Mckinnon gets 8 million and Latavius is going to restructure or get cut. Its not even close.

He was better than Murray in the beginning og the year but Murray was way better in the second half, imo.

Not way better in the end, but better. I bet his foot was bothering him because he went from no power and getting tackled if someone touched his shoe, to a decent power back.

I'm not as surprised about this as many seem to be. Different players are worth more to different teams because of different schemes. Even while sharing snaps Jet was top 15 in most every receiving RB category. (Yards, targets, catches, etc.)

A little bit about the 49ers scheme;

Quote:
When Kyle Shanahan accepted the position as the San Francisco 49ers head coach, he brought with him his highly-touted offensive system.

Doug Farrar of Bleacher Report ranked the 10 best offensive schemes in the NFL, and Shanahan's "pre-snap passing game" landed his offense at No. 1.

“Many teams use motion to help the quarterback discern whether a defense is playing man or zone, and some teams are especially good as using motion to gain positional advantages,” Farrar said. “But under Shanahan's watch, pre-snap motion becomes a crazy quilt in which any skill position player can start anywhere and move anywhere else.”

Shanahan’s pre-snap motion success is exemplified by Atlanta Falcons running back tandem Devonta Freeman and Tevin Coleman who combined for 85 receptions for 883 receiving yards last season.

“Running backs Devonta Freeman and Tevin Coleman might start in the backfield together and each move into the receiver group—perhaps one in the slot and one outside,” Farrar added. “A Shanahan staple was to take fullback Patrick DiMarco and move him from the backfield to the outside receiver formation—something fullbacks don't generally do. But DiMarco caught seven passes for 52 yards in the regular season and three more for 43 yards in the playoffs, and he never carried the ball. He was a blocker and receiver, and that was that.”


That sounds like an environment he can thrive in if he can stay healthy.

I agree. I think a lot of fans have been slow to understand the degree of specialization in the NFL. A guy who can do a couple at an elite level is worth more than a guy who can do 5 things well, especially in the skill positions. A 'five tool' RB would be great to have, but being somebody who has to be accounted for situationally is more valuable in creating mismatches than a guy who is more versatile and less 'special' at any aspect of the game. The Patriots 'small ball' approach opened the door to a whole bunch of undersized, quicker than fast guys, who became role players only because of the things they do well, rather than being out of the league because of the things they can't do well.

McKinnon is a unique talent because he has his strengths and is well rounded enough not to have glaring weaknesses in other realms.

completely overpaid people were complaining about Cousins deal?

I'll take that bet. Jet is going to get a lot of touches in SF. He's being paid like RB/WR, as he should be.

Which bet? That San Fran will continue to be in the dumpster? I think they really went over board this year, and they will next year too, if able. They are the new Lions as far as management. I do love the Jimmy G FA a lot. But as we have seen this year, just an outstanding (which Jimmy has yet to prove he is) will not win you a SB. The way the Vikes are going at it is a much better way. Im not as big on others with the Cousins signing for 30 a year, and it isnt a front side loaded contract. I think saving 10 Mil and taking a chance on Case may have been a better move simply because, for whatever reason, the Vikings fall apart, and mostly on the D side of the ball, in big games, at horrible times. And that hard to overcome even for professionals when the D is ussually so good. Plus the D like the bend but dont break idea a little too much. I know its worked for them so far, but luck runs out, and when it does, it would be nice to have extra money lying around to pick up the good FA's.

Garoppolo did not win the last 5 games by himself. 49ers had a pretty good team in 2017 except for the QB position. In the first half of the season, they lost 5 games by 3 points or less (2 in OT). With decent QB play from the start, they could have competed with the Rams for the NFC West.

It’s not like Case was stellar in the playoffs either

Case wasnt stellar, correct. The Oline was worse, heck the whole team was just bad. Whatever happens to the D from time to time, like San Fran a few years ago, This years second half against the Saints, and then the whole game against the Eagles, has to be fixed.

I dont get the whole "second half vs. the Saints" thing. And I've seen this so many times on here and for whatever reason I dont address it. In the second half, Case threw a pick that put NO in the red zone and we had a punt blocked which put them in scoring range. How is that on the defense? We gave up one true TD that game. The first one to Thomas. After that they were caused by Keenum and our ST. Not the defense. When the rest of your team is putting you (the defense) in bad position, you can only contain NO's offense so much. For the most part, the defense played a pretty good second half.

The Defense needs better pass rushers. Got to put more pressure on good QBs in order to win in the playoffs. We need to upgrade till the DLine becomes Dominant

3 tech is biggest need there. Pushing the pocket and getting interior penetration will make Everson and Danielle look all that much better.

Yeah, and Kyle Shanahan knows how to use versatile players like Jet. He could have a breakout year.

I heard the deal was backloaded in a big

money ?
