Matt Breida agrees to terms with Bills

USA TODAY Sports

Matt Breida is moving from one AFC East team to another.

The running back has agreed to terms with the Bills on a one-year deal, Buffalo announced on Thursday.

Breida played the 2020 season with Miami, where he appeared in 12 games and rushed for 254 yards. He also made nine receptions for 96 yards.

Originally entering the league as an undrafted free agent out of Georgia Southern, Breida spent his first three seasons with the 49ers. He started 13 games in 2018, recording 1,075 yards from scrimmage with five touchdowns. The 49ers placed a second-round tender on Breida as a restricted free agent before trading him to Miami last offseason.

In all Breida has rushed for 2,156 yards with six touchdowns and caught 76 passes for 657 yards with four TDs in his four-year career.

  1. Why doesn’t anyone utilize this man properly? He’s a blur in the open field. I think this is a great signing for the Bills. Kind of a home run hitter either on the draw play or screen pass.

  2. D. Singletary will still be RB1, but Breida will be great competition to Z. Moss for the RB2 spot.

    Be serviceable for the 5 or 6 games he’s healthy.

    Being 3rd on the depth chart that’s probably all he’ll see.

  4. Just what we need, another mediocre running back to go with the mediocre bunch we already have. Maybe together they can total 1,000 yards this year.

  5. The Bills and Dolphins both need a workhorse running back they can hang their hat on.

  6. I dont think it matters who they have a RB, the OC hardly called running plays last year, so youre never going to have big production there if they do that again. Bills are a pass heavy team.

    They only ran the ball 400 times last year (passed 600) and 100 of those runs were by Allen. That means some at least 1/3 of those runs were scrambles that actually started out as pass plays.
