49ers officially sign FB Kyle Juszczyk

Mar 9, 2017 at 3:56 PM--


The San Francisco 49ers have officially signed former Baltimore Ravens FB Kyle Juszczyk to a four-year deal. The agreement between Juszczyk and the 49ers was reported on Wednesday, but could not become official until after the start of free agency at 1 p.m. on Thursday.

Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reported that the four-year deal is worth $21 million.

The 49ers didn't have a fullback on the roster last season. Bruce Miller was the team's fullback the previous season and was trying to convert to a tight end in Chip Kelly's offense, but legal problems led the 49ers to release Miller a week prior to the start of the regular season.

Juszczyk has been a capable receiver as well. He has 97 catches for 769 yards and five touchdowns since 2014.

San Francisco 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan may be leaning toward Mac Jones of Alabama with the No 3 overall pick. The former Crimson Tide quarterback may have been the target when the Niners traded up nine spots last month. Other than a brief weeklong drop to the No. 2 spot, Jones has been the betting favorite for much of the time since the blockbuster trade. Did San Francisco surrender multiple future draft picks, including first-rounders, for Jones? ESPN draft analyst Todd McShay hears that Jones remains the favorite in Shanahan's mind. On Sunday night, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reported that the 49ers' decision had been narrowed down to two prospects — Jones and Trey Lance of North Dakota State. It sounds like Justin Fields of Ohio State
