49ers Release Veteran Running Back

The San Francisco 49ers made the biggest move of the regular season thus far, as they traded for superstar running back Christian McCaffrey, and with Jeff Wilson and Elijah Mitchell already on the roster, it's now clear that they have one of the most talented running back rooms in the entire league. Unfortunately, that means there's only a certain amount of spots, and today, the team has made a subsequent move, and that comes in the form of releasing NFL veteran Tevin Coleman, who they picked up after the injury to Mitchell. 

The 29-year old was a third round pick back in the 2015 draft by the Atlanta Falcons, and although he's never managed to find a long-term home, he has been a major contributor wherever he's been. As well as Atlanta, Coleman has played for San Francisco and the New York Jets, racking up over 4,500 all purpose yards to go along with 36 Touchdowns, and it's safe to say that a playoff team out there could certainly use the veterans service.

Despite the 49ers loss to Kansas City in Week 7, they are in fantastic shape going forward, and if Jimmy Garoppolo can play solid, turnover free football, this is a team that could absolutely run through the NFC when the playoffs finally come around.
