Bills sign RB Breida to one-year deal

The Buffalo Bills signed running back MATT BREIDA to a one-year contract late last week. Breida, 26, will add speed and depth to the Bills backfield. He will likely slot behindMore current Buffalo running backs DEVIN SINGLETARY and ZACK MOSS. Running back T.J. YELDON was the number three running back last season, but he is now expected to move on in free agency. Less

Factoid: Buffalo running backs

The Bills signed Matt Breida (pictured) yesterday. Breida had his moments for a couple of seasons with San Francisco, but he gradually fell out of favor. He was a total non-factor in Miami last year, and he'll likely provide similar value in Buffalo. Negative value, if you factor in what he'll do for the other running backs there.   more »

Breida misses another practice due to bad hammy

Miami Dolphins running back MATT BREIDA missed practice for the second consecutive day due to a hamstring injury. The Dolphins were expecting Breida to replace injured starter MYLES GASKIN (placed onMore injured reserve), but that plan may need to change.

Around the NFL: Miami running backs

The Dolphins had the league's worst running game a year ago, which tends to happen when your offensive line is cheap and terrible and you trade your only decent running back during the season. They brought in two new veterans this offseason, Jordan Howard and Matt Breida, and those are the guys who should get most (all?) of the snaps in 2020. How might things shake out?  more »



Breida, Howard ready to “shock” the NFL in 2020

Miami Dolphins running back MATT BREIDA said recently that he and new teammate JORDAN HOWARD are going to shock a lot of people heading into the 2020 season. The two veteranMore running backs were discarded by their former teams but are expected to carry the rushing load in Miami. Considering that quarterback RYAN FITZPATRICK led the Dolphins in rushing with 243 yards last season, the bar is low. Less



Dolphins RB Breida declares himself the fastest player in the NFL

Miami running back MATT BREIDA said this week that there is nobody in the NFL as fast as him. Breida recently bought himself a Lamborghini, which he says matches his styleMore of play.

Factoid: Dolphins running backs

I kind of cringe whenever I see Jordan Howard selected in drafts. He's an ordinary talent, routinely outplayed by the other backs on the roster everywhere he's been, and he's going to a team that probably won't run the ball well, won't have many leads and will favor a committee. Otherwise, great pick.   more »



49ers RB Wilson signs tender

The San Francisco 49ers announced that free agent running back JEFF WILSON signed his one-year tender, which will keep him around for the upcoming 2020 season. Wilson saw limited action lastMore season, appearing in ten games, but he managed to contribute five total touchdowns during that time. Wilson has value as both a runner and a receiver, but he joins a crowded backfield that includes RAHEEM MOSTERT, TEVIN COLEMAN, MATT BREIDA, and JERICK MCKINNON. Less

49ers RB Breida signs one-year tender

Around the NFL: 49ers Backfield

San Francisco recently restructured Jerick McKinnon's contract. It's a polite way of saying he took a huge paycut to stay on the roster. McKinnon hasn't played a regular-season down in two years with the team, so no one should be expecting him to make any kind of impact this year, either.   more »
