49ers to sign RB McKinnon; Hyde off to Browns


He also added 59 receptions for 350 yards through the air and fumbled only once all season. Originally a second-round choice in 2014, Hyde said repeatedly during the season that he hoped to remain with the only National Football League team he'd ever played for. The main concern with him for a while was his struggle with staying healthy. His contract should realistically be viewed as a one-year deal for around $3 million.

Interestingly enough, Hyde and Crowell have put up nearly identical numbers since entering the league in 2014 as they both have averaged 4.2 yards per carry and have rushed for 21 touchdowns each. Hyde had a solid rookie season behind then starter Frank Gore, amassing 83 carries for 333 yards and four touchdowns.

During his time with the Buckeyes, Hyde only missed two games with a knee sprain, but that would end up being just the tip of the iceberg. He also finished the year with 1,151 total offensive yards good for nine total touchdowns (another career-high).

Considering the fact that both general manager Dave Gettleman and head coach Pat Shutmur envision quarterback Eli Manning playing a few more seasons, the Giants may be more inclined to pass on drafting a quarterback at No. 2 overall.

It's actually a pretty solid deal for the Browns. A move they made Wednesday could wipe "running back" off their list of needs. Signing Todd Haley as their new offensive coordinator was another step in the right direction.

In Cleveland, Hyde pairs with excellent receiving back Duke Johnson to form a strong one-two punch - three if we include new dual-threat QB Tyrod Taylor.

But the real question here is whether or not signing Hyde will throw cold water on those rumors that the team might try and draft Penn State running back Saquon Barkley with the first pick in the draft.

The Browns are looking to add some offensive firepower to the roster after they went 0-16 past year.
