Matt Barrows of the Sacramento Bee reported the 49ers' interest yesterday. "While splitting carries with Ronnie Hillman for most of the season, Anderson finished 2015 with 720 rushing yards (4.74-yard avg.) and five touchdowns. He started Super Bowl 50 and rushed for the team's only offensive touchdown," Barrows pointed out.
There are also some questions regarding the durability of Hyde, who missed nine games last season with a broken foot. Hyde appears to be recovering well and is on track to take part in the team's offseason activities.
