    Dolphins' Matt Breida: Hasn't been offered extension

    Matt Breida hasn't discussed a contract extension with the Miami Dolphins, Barry Jackson of The Miami Herald reports.Breida signed a second-round restricted free agent tender with the 49ers in mid-April, only to be traded to the Dolphins a week later in exchange for a 2020 fifth-round pick. The 25-year-old is scheduled for a $3.3 million salary and is expected to split backfield snaps with Jordan Howard, while 2019 holdovers Patrick Laird, Myles Gaskin and Kalen Ballage presumably will need to compete for a roster spot. Given the current climate of economic uncertainty, the Dolphins may be hesitant to offer Breida an extension.

    Dolphins' Matt Breida: Traded to Miami

    Matt Breida was traded to the Miami Dolphins on Saturday for a fifth-round pick, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.Raheem Mostert's improbable playoff run gave the 49ers yet another running back to their burgeoning glut, so it makes sense to see Breida move for a relatively healthy compensation. The third-year tailback has yet to register a season with more than 180 touches, but he could soon find plenty of work in the Dolphins' backfield. A two-year, $10 million offseason deal with Jordan Howard figures to block Breida's immediate path to the starting lineup, but the former 49er is unquestionably the more explosive of the two backfield options and likely will get plenty of chances to unseat the Indiana product's grapple hold on the two-down carries.

    49ers' Matt Breida: Re-ups with 49ers

    Matt Breida signed his restricted free agent tender Thursday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.For his career, Breida has averaged 5.0 yards per carry and reeled in 75.3 percent of his 89 targets. While production isn't a question mark, opportunity is a problem, given he's in a backfield with Raheem Mostert, Tevin Coleman, Jerick McKinnon and even Jeff Wilson. Breida's name has been mentioned in the trade front so far this offseason, but for the time being he remains an employee of the San Francisco 49ers.

    49ers' Matt Breida: Likely available for trade

    Matt Breida is a candidate to be traded this offseason, according to Matt Maiocco of NBC Sports Bay Area.Breida has produced 4.4, 5.3 and 5.1 yards per carry in three years with the San Francisco 49ers, but he fell behind Raheem Mostert and Tevin Coleman in the backfield pecking order during last season's NFC Championship Game and Super Bowl. The Niners then used a second-round restricted free agent tender to retain Breida, keeping him under contract for $3.26 million in 2020. It's a reasonable salary for a player with his track record of production, but it's a lot to pay for a No. 3 running back, especially if the Niners truly expect Jerick McKinnon (knee) to return from back-to-back missed seasons and battle for a role. Even Jeff Wilson at the bottom of the depth chart has noteworthy NFL experience, so the Niners likely will listen closely if another team is interested in trading for Breida. Another option would involve trading Coleman, who is entering the second season of a two-year, $8.5 million contract.

    49ers' Matt Breida: Gets second-round tender

    The San Francisco 49ers are tendering Matt Breida at the second-round level, Dianna Russini of ESPN reports.This means the team will receive a second-round pick if it declines to match an offer sheet for the restricted free agent. Breida has made a strong impression through three NFL seasons, but not strong enough for any team to give up a second-round pick for the right to sign him to a large contract. Barring a trade, he'll be back with the 49ers in 2020 as part of a backfield that also has Raheem Mostert, Tevin Coleman, Jerick McKinnon and Jeff Wilson under contract.

    49ers' Matt Breida: Role reduced as season progressed

    Matt Breida finished the 2019 season with 123 carries for 623 yards and a touchdown, also contributing 19 receptions for 120 yards and another score in 13 games.Breida did most of his damage through the first nine games of the season as a co-starter (542 rushing yards and 110 receiving yards) before going down to injury against Seattle in Week 10. The San Francisco 49ers' backfield landscape had shifted upon his return in Week 14, as Raheem Mostert had emerged as the team's top option with Tevin Coleman serving as the "1B" option. Breida suffered a case of fumbleitis down the stretch, coughing the ball up three times despite touching the ball just 23 times over five games following his injury layoff. The 24-year-old's talent as a rusher is unquestioned (5.1 yards per carry this year), but the combination of his ball security issues and the breakout performance of Mostert kept the speedy back as a healthy scratch during the team's unsuccessful Super Bowl run. All three of San Francisco's contributing backs in 2019 are under contract for 2020, so Breida figures to begin next season third on the depth chart barring any unforeseen changes this upcoming offseason.

    49ers' Matt Breida: Limited to one carry

    Matt Breida took one carry for two yards in Sunday's 37-20 win over Green Bay in the NFC Championship GameTevin Coleman injured his shoulder during the second quarter, but it was strictly Raheem Mostert who picked up the slack, finishing with 220 rushing yards and four touchdowns on an 82 percent snap share. Breida was limited to the one touch on two offensive snaps, but he did have eight carries on 12 snaps the previous week in a 27-10 win over the Vikings (he also lost a fumble). Depending on Coleman's health, Breida will operate as the No. 2 or 3 option in the San Francisco 49ers' backfield in a Super Bowl matchup with Kansas City.

    49ers' Matt Breida: Logs eight snaps on offense

    Matt Breida had four carries for 16 yards in Sunday's 26-21 win over the Seahawks.Breida got reintegrated into the offensive game plan after essentially being a healthy scratch last week. Raheem Mostert has been on a tear of late, and coach Kyle Shanahan has been known to roll with the hot hand at running back during his tenure with San Francisco. Injuries slowed Breida down in the second half of the season, but the speedy back still managed to average over five yards per carry for the second consecutive season, finishing with 623 rushing yards and a touchdown while adding another 120 yards and a score as a receiver. The 24-year-old will be a restricted free agent this upcoming offseason, but the San Francisco 49ers figure to attempt to keep Breida around due to the team's familiarity with the back and its need for depth in Shanahan's power-run scheme.

    49ers' Matt Breida: Not used on offense

    Matt Breida did not play any snaps on offense in Saturday's 34-31 win over the Rams.The oft-injured back was not listed on the injury report, so his demotion to special teams was a coaching decision. Breida had a rough go of it last week against Atlanta (four carries for 11 yards and a lost fumble), which may have played a role in his lack of touches. The speedy back has otherwise been solid when deployed this season (119 rushes for 607 yards and a touchdown), so coach Kyle Shanahan may also be attempting to keep Breida fresh for the playoffs after the third-year back endured multiple injuries over the course of the regular season. Sunday's matchup against Seattle will decide the fate of the NFC West, so while the 24-year-old could be part of the gameplan, the uncertainty surrounding his playing time makes him tough to trust for fantasy purposes.

    49ers' Matt Breida: Coughs up two fumbles, loses one

    Matt Breida ran for 11 yards on four carries and lost one fumble during Sunday's 29-22 loss to the Falcons. He also caught both of his targets for six receiving yards.Breida accounted for 15 scrimmage yards on four first-half touches, but he quickly fell out of the rotation after fumbling on consecutive third-quarter carries. The first fumble fortunately rolled out of bounds, but the second was recovered by Atlanta's De'Vondre Campbell. From that point forward the 24-year-old back was not entrusted with another offensive touch, as Raheem Mostert closed out the afternoon with 10 more rush attempts than any other San Francisco RB. Breida's role in the San Francisco 49ers' ground attack is difficult to predict heading into a Week 16 matchup versus a Rams defense that entered Sunday as a top-12 unit against the run.
