Former 49ers starting running back Carlos Hyde expected to sign 3-year, $15 million deal with Browns

Former 49ers running back Carlos Hyde is on his way to Berea, Ohio. Ian Rapoport of NFL Network announced the deal early Tuesday morning.


The move comes in response to speculation that Hyde may not fit 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan's outside-zone offense. Hyde played his first full 16-game season in 2017, finishing with 240 carries for 938 yards and eight touchdowns. He also added 59 receptions for 350 yards through the air and fumbled only once all season.

Hyde was a second-round pick (No. 57 overall) by former 49ers general manager Trent Baalke in 2014. Hyde had a solid rookie season behind then-starter Frank Gore, amassing 83 carries for 333 yards and four touchdowns. Hyde had a four-plus yard per carry average in each of his first three seasons. That number dropped to 3.9 in 2017.

Hyde will split carries with Cleveland's Duke Johnson, after news yesterday that former Browns starting running back Isaiah Crowell has landed with the New York Jets.


Hyde finished his time in Santa Clara with 655 rushes for 2,729 yards. He scored 21 touchdowns in his four seasons with the Niners and averaged 4.2 yards per carry. Through the air, the former 49ers starting running back added 109 receptions and amassed 634 yards, scoring another three touchdowns. His three reception touchdowns all came in 2016, under then-head coach Chip Kelly.

The Cleveland Browns have agreed to trade quarterback Baker Mayfield to the Carolina Panthers in exchange for a 2024 conditional fifth-round pick, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. That's bad news for the San Francisco 49ers, who watch their options for Jimmy Garoppolo dwindle as yet another quarterback-needy team adds a veteran passer. The Browns are also paying nearly $10.5 million of Mayfield's 2022 salary, while the Panthers are only on the hook for around $5 million, as Mayfield elected to trim $3.5 million of his salary for the trade, according to NFL Network's Mike

One week after Washington Commanders star receiver Terry McLaurin was a no-show at mandatory minicamp, the 26-year-old reached an agreement with the organization, signing a three-year, $71 million deal, according to Adam Schefter. Further contract details came out about McLaurin's deal, as Schefter revealed that the former Ohio State receiver got a $28 million signing bonus, which serves as the largest of all time by a receiver. Additionally, McLaurin gets $53.154 million guaranteed, penciling right behind fellow fourth-year receiver A.J. Brown, who received a four-year, $100 million deal from the Philadelphia Eagles with $57 million guaranteed. Here's the full

Another NFL wide receiver has seen his bank account grow this offseason. Earlier today, ESPN's Adam Schefter reported that the Washington Commanders are signing Terry McLaurin to a three-year extension worth up to $71 million in new money with $53.2 million guaranteed. That's nearly $23.7 million annually in potential new cash and about $17.7 million in new guaranteed money. Meanwhile, everyone is still waiting to see how the San Francisco 49ers resolve their situation with their star wideout, Deebo Samuel. It wasn't that long ago that he requested to be traded after watching several of his peers earn big paydays this offseason. Many, including star tight end George Kittle,



Bruschi: 49ers' Trey Lance has 'most to prove' among second-year QBs

The quarterbacks from the 2021 draft class will be linked together and compared for a long time. Most received a significant amount of playing time during their rookie seasons. The one who did not was San Francisco 49ers quarterback Trey Lance. He started just two games and spent most of his freshman NFL season learning behind veteran Jimmy Garoppolo. The upcoming season will be different, though. Lance is slated to become the 49ers' full-time starter, with Garoppolo likely to be shipped out of Santa Clara. One ESPN analyst believes Lance has the most to prove among the 2021 first-round quarterback class that also includes Trevor Lawrence, Zach Wilson, Justin Fields, and Mac Jones. "He is the one that has the most to prove because you almost have to prove your
