Vikings lose RB McKinnon to 49ers

  • Jerick Mc Kinnon #21 of the Minnesota Vikings runs the ball during the first half against the Atlanta Falcons at Mercedes Benz Stadium

But now they appear to have their running back as well.

Jerick McKinnon is a decent running back, but the San Francisco 49ers are about to pay the former Minnesota Vikings player like an elite superstar.

A source said that running back Jerick McKinnnon, who spent the past four seasons with the Vikings, will sign a four-year, $30 million contract with the 49ers on Wednesday's first day of free agency. Last season, while splitting carries with Latavius Murray, McKinnon finished with a career-high 570 rushing yards and three touchdowns, while adding 51 receptions for 421 yards and two receiving touchdowns.

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

However, the competitions that really matter to Manchester United fans are the Premier League and Champions League. But the attacker has failed to perform to his best and has often been a passenger in the United team.


The value of the deal is $7.5 million annually.

If the value of McKinnon's contract with the 49ers is indeed true, his average salary will be the fourth-highest among National Football League running backs in 2018. It would be prudent to wait for the final numbers to be reported, as incentives will likely play a part in McKinnon's contract.

McKinnon's versatility and ability to catch the ball out of the backfield make him a nice fit with San Francisco head coach Kyle Shanahan's offensive philosophy. "It worked out well, but I want bigger and better things for myself".
