That breaks down to an average of about $7.5 milllion a year, a significant raise over what he was making with the Vikings.

The comings and goings continue with the Minnesota Vikings, amidst reports a versatile running back is leaving for a bigger paycheck and more playing time.

Early on Wednesday, ESPN's Adam Schefter reported that the 49ers will sign the 25-year-old RB - formerly of the Minnesota Vikings - to a four-year deal worth up to $30 million.

But as is often the case in the National Football League, once the details rolled in, the deal doesn't seem almost as outrageous as initial reports seemed to indicate.

As for McKinnon, he's not a running back that will dazzle. With Dalvin Cook on injured reserve, McKinnon split the backfield duties with Latavius Murray.

In Minnesota, McKinnon was good but not great.

Sessions May Fire McCabe Days Before He's Set to Retire
TA source told AP that McCabe is suspected of misleading internal investigators about a media leak, an allegation he denies. Strzok was removed from the Mueller team in July, though the reason for his ouster was not reported until December.

Over the past two seasons, McKinnon has contributed 1,109 rushing yards on 309 carries with five touchdowns.

After the season McKinnon voiced his desire to become a feature back in a team's offense.

So the question is how Kyle Shanahan and the 49ers will view McKinnon this upcoming season.

The San Francisco 49ers may have lost Carlos Hyde to the Cleveland Browns, but they are bringing in running back Jerick McKinnon to take over his role in the backfield. He's just barely topped 200 touches in each of the last two seasons and has a career-high of 159 carries.

He heads to San Francisco to not only play behind the best quarterback he's had in his career but also with the best offensive mind he's played for. From Week 5 on, McKinnon averaged 3.9 yards per rush, gaining 544 yards on 140 carries while catching 43 passes for 381 yards. He certainly has upside as a receiver, but McKinnon is best viewed as a mid-range RB2.
