The San Francisco 49ers agreed to terms with two new faces and brought back a familiar one as the new league year began on Wednesday. The team added running back Jerick McKinnon and offensive lineman Weston Richburg to the roster. They also brought back linebacker Brock Coyle. See how members of the 49ers, media and the rest of the NFL reacted on social media to San Francisco's initial wave of free agent signings.
THE BAY STAND UP!!!!! ITS TIME!!!— Jerick Mckinnon (@JetMckinnon1) March 14, 2018
On Jerick McKinnon: 49ers coach Kyle Shanahan has very specific traits he wants in offensive roles. So McKinnon's versatility as a back (a la Coleman/Freeman), and the need to have 2 guys like that made him a priority.— Albert Breer (@AlbertBreer) March 14, 2018
Really like Jerick McKinnon’s fit in Kyle Shanahan’s zone scheme and as a part of an offense that’ll ask the RB to be a reliable option in the pass game— Chris Trapasso (@ChrisTrapasso) March 14, 2018
