Matt Breida may be moved out of San Francisco

San Francisco 49ers running back Matt Breida may not be on the roster by the start of the season, writes Matt Maiocco of NBC Sports Bay Area.

What It Means:

The 49ers extended a second-round tender to Breida last month, but Maiocco is "sure the 49ers would be willing to trade his rights" for a pick in a later round. He also mentions Tevin Coleman as a possible cut candidate if the 49ers are in a financial bind, but Maiocco is under the impression that Breida will be the odd man out of the crowded backfield. The 25-year-old back started last season with a pair of 100-yard performances over the 49ers' first four games, but his role evaporated down the stretch. San Francisco is currently set to open 2020 with a backfield consisting of Breida, Raheem Mostert, Tevin Coleman, Jerick McKinnon, and Jeff Wilson.

Breida averaged 7.82 FanDuel points (RB48) and 57.2 yards from scrimmage with 2 touchdowns over 13 games last season. He was just below league average in added Net Expected Points per rush (-0.03) and success rate (40.24), finishing behind Wilson (0.14, 51.9) and Mostert (0.14, 43.1) in both categories.
