49ers Signing RB Tevin Coleman To Two-Year, $10M Deal


Adam Schefter reports that the 49ers are signing former Falcons RB Tevin Coleman to a two-year, $10 million contract on Wednesday.

Coleman reunites with his former offensive coordinator, Kyle Shanahan, in San Francisco.

The Eagles and Jets had been linked to Coleman this offseason, but the 49ers had been in the market for running back help and it appears as though they proved to be his best option in the end. 

Coleman, 25, is a former third-round pick of the Falcons back in 2015. He played out the final year of his four-year, $3.219 million contract and was testing the open market as an unrestricted free agent market for the first time in his NFL career.

In 2018, Coleman appeared in all 16 games for the Falcons and rushed for 800 yards on 167 carries (4.8 YPC) to go along with 32 receptions for 276 yards receiving and nine total touchdowns. Pro Football Focus has him rated as the No. 47 running back out of 62qualifying players.

We had him featured in our Top 100 Available Free Agents list.
