Dolphins Place RB Matt Breida On COVID-19 List

The Miami Dolphins announced Friday that they’ve placed RB Matt Breida on the Reserve/COVID-19 list.

The COVID-19 list was created this summer for a player who either tests positive for or who has been quarantined after having been in close contact with an infected person or persons.

Players will remain on the list until they are medically cleared to return.

Breida, 25, wound up going undrafted out of Georgia Southern back in 2017 and finished a three-year, $1.66 million contract with the 49ers this offseason. He’s in line to be an unrestricted free agent in 2021. 

The 49ers placed a second-round tender on Breida and he is set to make $3.27 million for the 2020 season. He was traded to the Dolphins back in April for a fifth-round pick.

In 2020, Breida has appeared in nine games for the Dolphins and rushed for 168 yards on 47 carries (3.6 YPC) to go along with nine receptions for 96 yards receiving and no touchdowns.
