San Francisco running back Matt Breida is back in the fold.

Breida, a restricted free agent, has signed his one-year tender offer with the 49ers, according to Adam Schefter of ESPN.

Last year Breida was second on the team in rushing with 623 yards in the regular season. But after he started the season as the 49ers’ primary ball carrier, he was largely phased out of the offense late in the year. Although he played in all three postseason games, he totaled just nine carries for 19 yards. In the Super Bowl he played only on special teams and never got a snap on offense.

The 49ers initially signed Breida as an undrafted rookie out of Georgia Southern in 2017.

  1. The trending was down, but at the tendered price, it makes sense for SF to use it.

  2. He got phased out because he kept fumbling. Same with Goodwin and his dropped passes. Shanahan couldn’t trust them in the playoffs.
