RB DuJuan Harris returning to 49ers on one-year deal

Mar 27, 2017 at 3:23 PM--


Free agent running back DuJuan Harris will be returning to the San Francisco 49ers on a one-year deal, reports the Sacramento Bee and his agent.



Last season, Harris carried the ball just 38 times for 138 yards with the 49ers but also added 115 yards and a touchdown on eight receptions. He was on and off the roster all season, finally being promoted to the active roster on October 22. Harris did not make the team's final roster in September and was released and signed to the team's practice squad twice after that.

Initially, Harris was a late-season addition by the 49ers in 2015 – being signed from the Baltimore Ravens practice squad. He rushed for 140 yards on 27 carries in the final two games of that season.



Harris, who entered the league as an undrafted free agent in 2011 with the Jacksonville Jaguars, has also spent time with the Pittsburgh Steelers, Green Bay Packers, Minnesota Vikings, New Orleans Saints, Seattle Seahawks, and Ravens.

The 49ers had free agent running back Tim Hightower in for a visit on March 16, but so far, nothing has come from that.

In 2016, the 49ers offense ranked fourth in the NFL in rushing yards, averaging over 126 yards per game.

Mike McGlinchey welcomes criticism of his play, so long as the critic is looking at the entire body of his work instead of picking out a play or two here and there. He acknowledged that he has made mistakes this season. However, McGlinchey feels that his overall performance has been better than many are making it out to be. The third-year tackle sees the analysis on social media and is fine with it, so long as it is done right. Said McGlinchey on Wednesday: "Obviously, I don't really appreciate people who are the armchair quarterbacks that take a 30-second clip off of Twitter and think they understand offensive-line play. I don't like that." Pro Football Focus grades show that McGlinchey's overall play has been improving as the season progresses

The 49ers are Broken, Shanahan Must Fix Them

That championship window closed fast. In January, I wrote a piece about how the 49ers were facing a must-win Super Bowl. It wasn't a popular opinion at the time, but sitting at 2-3 the 49ers have made me look like a sage with boundless wisdom. After getting demolished by Ryan Fitzpatrick this past Sunday, the 49ers look more lost than they ever have under the guidance of head coach Kyle Shanahan. With no identity and no passion, the 49ers have become the stereotypical Super Bowl hangover story. As it often does, failure begins with a handful of bad decisions. After losing 2 team captains, the 49ers replaced them with a rookie and a veteran who hasn't played since 2018. As DT DeForest Buckner
