49ers re-sign RB Kendall Gaskins to two-year deal

Jun 20, 2016 at 2:28 PM--


The San Francisco 49ers announced the re-signing of RB Kendall Gaskins to two-year deal on Monday.

Gaskins was waived by the team on May 6 in order to make room for 12 undrafted free agent signings. After spending 2014 on the 49ers practice squad, Gaskins appeared in nine games in 2015 and had 38 yards rushing in 16 attempts after being promoted to the active roster on October 31.

The team had an open roster spot after RB Jarryd Hayne abruptly retired to pursue playing in the 2016 Summer Olympics. Other running backs on the 49ers roster include Carlos Hyde, Shaun Draughn, DuJuan Harris, second-year player Mike Davis, and rookie Kelvin Taylor.

Gaskins played college football at Richmond and went undrafted in 2013. He has spent time on the roster or practice squad of the Buffalo Bills, Tennessee Titans, and New York Giants.

49ers mailbag: Will 49ers sign a big-name QB? Who will Ryans take to Houston? Who will replace Ryans? Will Garoppolo return?

There's not much going on with the San Francisco 49ers. Not unless you count these small bits of news: Brock Purdy has a UCL tear and will likely need surgery. If they can repair the tendon, he'll need six months of recovery time (which is August). If they have to replace it (Tommy John surgery), it will be decidedly longer. Trey Lance says he is three to four weeks from being cleared to practice, and that he should be 100% by OTAs (organized team activities). Trent Williams was walking with a crutch on Tuesday (locker cleanout day) and had a walking boot on. But he said it's nothing. DeMeco Ryans was hired to be the next head coach of the Houston Texans. Tom Brady announced his retirement Wednesday morning, so those hoping he

The San Francisco 49ers announced they have signed wide receiver Tyron Johnson and cornerback Tre Swilling to reserve/future contracts. The 49ers Communications staff provided the following rundown. Johnson (6-1, 193) originally entered the NFL after signing with the Houston Texans on May 10, 2019. Over his three-year career with the Texans (2019, 2022), Los Angeles Chargers (2020), Jacksonville Jaguars (2021) and Las Vegas Raiders (2021-22), Johnson has appeared in 26 games (one start) and registered 23 receptions for 442 yards and three touchdowns. He has also appeared in one postseason game as a member of the Raiders. Johnson began the 2022 season with the Raiders before being waived



Should the 49ers re-sign RT Mike McGlinchey?

The San Francisco 49ers are now focused on the offseason, with their season ending at the hands of the Philadelphia Eagles in a 31-7 loss on Sunday in the NFC Championship Game. Which means it's time for personnel decisions, likely coaching staff departures, and of course, quarterback talk. But, one of the biggest questions that the 49ers face come with free agent right tackle Mike McGlinchey, who is likely to earn the most money of any San Francisco free agent in 2022. McGlinchey has faced his ups and downs as a 49er, but has been a valuable run-defender, and the starting right tackle for the past five seasons. However, he is likely to command a hefty salary on the open market, and could look for a fresh opportunity after the amount of



Should the 49ers sign QB Tom Brady this offseason?

The San Francisco 49ers are officially in offseason mode after their 31-7 NFC Championship loss to the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday, and enter it with unfortunate news, as quarterback Brock Purdy suffered a torn UCL, which will keep him out for at least six months, pending on a choice for surgery. That leaves the 49ers with quarterback Trey Lance as their current top quarterback option heading into the offseason, who is progressing through his recovery from a torn ACL. However, there is another domino that must be addressed: the free agency of Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady, who has long been connected to the San Francisco 49ers, given the hometown connection. With the dots potentially aligning, should the 49ers sign Brady to a
