Details on Jerick McKinnon’s restructured contract with 49ers emerge

Mar 19, 2020 at 2:34 PM--


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

49ers-Eagles: Goal line stand turns the tide after shaky 49ers start

By Kirk Larrabee

If there was one significant turning point in the San Francisco 49ers' 17-11 win over the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday, it was most likely the unexpected goal line stand members of the defense produced after a 91-yard pass put their backs against the wall in the second quarter. Down 3-0 to the Eagles with just over seven minutes remaining in the half, the 49ers had a long field behind them after a punt from Mitch Wishnowsky pinned the Eagles at their own three-yard line. But on the first play after the punt, Eagles quarterback Jalen Hurts went deep for wide receiver Quez Watkins, who went for 91 yards before being brought down by safety Jaquiski Tartt and cornerback Deommodore Lenoir at the 49ers' six-yard line. A pass interference call on cornerback Josh Norman two plays



Why Kyle Shanahan feels the 2021 49ers O-line may be his best yet

The offensive line for the San Francisco 49ers hasn't been a huge focus for the team since Kyle Shanahan arrived as the head coach in 2017. In fact, the team has only drafted two offensive lineman within the first four rounds of the draft over the past five years: RT Mike McGlinchey in 2018 and G Aaron Banks this year in the second round. However, the team has made significant strides in other moves to improve the offensive line, trading a third and a fifth round pick for star LT Trent Williams during last year's draft before signing him to an extension this offseason, and picking up Alex Mack as the starting center this offseason as well. With Shanahan's run/play-action oriented offense, a strong offensive line is necessary to work both the edges



Kyle Shanahan weighs in on Trey Lance's ability to be a good pocket QB for the 49ers

Everyone is excited about what Trey Lance might mean for the future of the San Francisco 49ers offense. The athletic rookie quarterback had 1,100 rushing yards and 14 rushing touchdowns to go with his 2,786 passing yards and 28 passing touchdowns as a sophomore at North Dakota State. While it was against lesser collegiate competition, the total was still impressive. However, Lance's potential as a pocket passer grabbed head coach Kyle Shanahan's attention. The bonus of his ability to make things happen with his legs convinced San Francisco to trade a haul of future draft capital to move up and select Lance with the No. 3 overall pick. Lance is just 21 years old and still has to learn to be a better pocket quarterback before taking over the reins. However, the



49ers place Jalen Hurd on IR, activate Dontae Johnson ahead of Lions game

The San Francisco 49ers have placed Jalen Hurd on injured reserve. The third-year wide receiver is attempting to return from the ACL injury he suffered before the start of last season. While he appeared in one preseason game this year—an August 29 matchup against the Las Vegas Raiders—he has yet to appear in a regular-season matchup. Being on injured reserve means Hurd will have to miss at least three games. That will make him eligible to return for Week 4 against the Seattle Seahawks. The 49ers also activated cornerback Dontae Johnson from the practice squad to make him available for Sunday's game against the Detroit Lions. That could mean that starting cornerback Emmanuel Moseley (knee) is unlikely to be available. He was listed as "doubtful" on the
