The San Francisco 49ers gained some salary-cap relief this week by restructuring the contract of running back Jerick McKinnon, who has failed to play a regular-season snap with the team over the last two seasons.

McKinnon, 27, signed a four-year, $30 million deal with the 49ers in 2018. He was set to count $8.55 million against the salary cap in 2020. The final year of that deal has been eliminated, essentially making it a one-year contract.

Below is the contract breakdown of McKinnon's restructured deal, courtesy of OverTheCap.com. The $4 million remaining from his initial contract's signing bonus has been spread out over the next two years, which is why you see information for 2021.

2020:
$910,000 base salary
$2 million prorated bonus
$250,000 per-game roster bonus ($15,625 per game)
$2.91 million salary-cap hit

2021:
No base salary
$2 million prorated bonus
$2 million salary-cap hit

By David Bonilla

Super Bowl 58 showcased that the San Francisco 49ers' roster has room for improvement despite possessing one of the most talent-rich units in the NFL. The right side of the offensive line could use some reinforcement. The cornerback position opposite Charvarius Ward might need addressing. Additionally, the 49ers' run defense struggled during the postseason. However, the offseason focus should center on wide receiver Brandon Aiyuk, the latest star player due for a contract extension. With the team exercising its fifth-year option on the wideout, Aiyuk is signed through the upcoming season. Now, the question remains whether both sides can reach an agreement. While the 49ers have been fortunate in previous years, signing their star players to contract extensions

The offseason is underway for the San Francisco 49ers, which means the team's decision makers will soon have to determine which free agents they would like to try to keep and which ones they'll have to let go. One of the more interesting cases is defensive end Chase Young, whom the 49ers added during the regular season from the Washington Commanders in exchange for a third-round draft pick. It may be hard for the 49ers to prevent Young from being more than a rent-a-player, but Young's friend and former Ohio State University teammate Nick Bosa made it clear Tuesday he'd like to see general manager John Lynch and the 49ers brass find a way to keep Young on the team. In this edition of the 49ers Notebook, we delve into a range of topics starting with Bosa's
