The San Francisco 49ers are looking into running back depth to pair alongside Carlos Hyde.

According to Adam Caplan of ESPN.com, the 49ers are bringing in former Dallas Cowboys running back Lance Dunbar for a visit.

Dunbar was lost for the season in October when he suffered a torn ACL and partially torn MCL. Dunbar had just five carries for 67 yards before the injury, but his main contribution came as a receiving option out of the backfield. Dunbar caught 21 passes for 215 yards in five games.

Dunbar set career highs in catches and yards despite appearing in just five games.

    Extrapolate that production over a full season and you have 80+ catches and over 800 receiving yards. He would have led the 49ers in both categories last year.

    I thought Dallas would bring him back. Very reliable and tough player. There are some quick/speedy RBs in the draft that could step up but having Dunbar was a real luxury until he got injured.

    Signed,

    A Cowboy Fan Wishing Dallas would sign a A1 Free Agent now (and not wait until the bottom of barrel).

    Once he gets outta jail again

    He’d make a perfect Santa Clara 49er๐Ÿ˜‰

    1. Torn ACL…. Check.
    2. Torn MCL… Check.

    Chip Kelly approved indeed.

    And we’ve all seen how effective ex-Cowboys are with Chippuh – DeMarco feels it’s a career extender since he got to take last year off.
