49ers to sign RB McKinnon; Hyde off to Browns

Colts chances for Saquon Barkley improve after Browns sign Carlos Hyde

When the league year starts Wednesday afternoon, Hyde will sign a $15 million contract, paying him $6 million in the first year, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.

He was drafted by the 49ers with the No. 57 pick in the second round, and third overall among running backs, behind Bishop Sankey and Jeremy Hill.

Hyde, who attended Ohio State, led the San Francisco 49ers in rushing each of the past three seasons.

Of course, the Giants still remain in the market for a successor to quarterback Eli Manning, and missing out on coveted All-Pro guard Andrew Norwell could also have them considering Notre Dame guard Quenton Nelson with their first-round pick. Barkley, ranked the best player in the draft by ESPN's Mel Kiper, has been in the discussion for the Browns - especially after he impressed at the combine. The earlier offseason addition of Tyrod Taylor at quarterback along with the Hyde signing makes it seem like the Browns are committed to running the kind of zone read, run-option offense that best fits Taylor's style. We were bullish on Hyde's fantasy football prospects a season ago as Shanahan arrived, and although he couldn't fully capitalize on that opportunity, this is another ideal one for Hyde with the Browns, who just signed former Steeler Chris Hubbard to round out their talented and high-priced offensive line.

Hyde was healthy for a full 16-game schedule for the first time in 2017 leading to the most productive season of his career.

While productive, Hyde still showed his inconsistency in the passing game, catching 59 of 87 targets for 350 yards. He also had 109 receptions for 634 yards and three touchdowns.

The Browns needed to sign a back, though, because Isaiah Crowell left via free agency. He was mostly a backup for his first two seasons.

Hyde has been productive, but his injuries have been a concern. Hyde averaged at least 4 yards per carry in three of his four seasons, and last season was at 3.91.
