The Miami Dolphins acquired ball carrier Matt Breida of the San Francisco 49ers for a fifth-round pick, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter.
The Dolphins are on the market for a flashback all season, and finally landed on Breida and his $ 3.259 million salary for 2020 after apparently exploring the trades of Todd Gurley and Leonard Fournette.
Upon entering the NFL 2020 draft, Miami had 14 choices and had to use at least one on a ball carrier but had not yet selected a player to position at the time of the acquisition of Breida.
Breida, 25, joins compatriot Jordan Howard in the Dolphins backfield, while the latter joined Miami on a $ 10 million contract last month. The offense was a desperate need for general manager Chris Grier to enter the off season: the Dolphins ranked last dead in the race last season with just 1,156 yards rushing, averaging 72.25 yards per match.
Signed by the 49ers as an undrafted free agent in May 2017, Breida has accumulated more than 1,900 rushing yards and six touchdowns in 43 games, averaging five yards per rush. The Brandon, Florida native also contributed to the passing game with 561 receiving yards and four touchdowns in three seasons in San Francisco.
