For the second consecutive offseason, the 49ers are adding one of the top available free agent running backs.
Tevin Coleman has agreed to a two-year, $10 million contract with the 49ers, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.
The move makes clear that 49ers General Manager John Lynch wants a good running game. Last year Jerick McKinnon signed a four-year, $30 million contract with the 49ers, and after he got hurt Matt Breida became the team’s top running back. Coleman is joining that mix as the 49ers attempt to make more plays in Kyle Shanahan’s offense.
