Jerick McKinnon #28 from San Francisco 49.

Thus begins the drama of the off-season.

Jerick McKinnon, the 49-year-old rearback, joined Deebo Samuel on Instagram Live to entertain fans in San Fran. McKinnon, who is currently a free agent, asked Samuel if he will return to the Bay Area in 2021.

Put on headphones people, because the answer will be stupid and unfiltered.

I’m staying with the Niners? ***** f*** no, what are you talking about? Says McKinnon. We’re out! We’re out!

McKinnon ended up playing only one season with the Niners.

McKinnon signed a four-year, $30 million contract with the Niners in 2018. But in September, on the eve of the first round, McKinnon tore his anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) during a team practice, ending his season.

He was trying to get back into shape for the 2019 season, but re-injured his knee during a training camp and was ruled out for the season.

Instead of releasing him, the 49ers reinstated his contract and returned McKinnon for the 2020 season, in which he played 16 games and started just four. He scored four touchdowns in four games and averaged 5.6 yards per carry on 34 attempts. He finished with just 31 strokes on the ball and has not scored in his last seven matches. McKinnon finished the year with 572 yards of scrimmage and six touchdowns.

McKinnon will not be missed in the Bay Area, as the Niners already have talented depth to return with in Jeff Wilson, Raheem Moster and JaMycal Hasty.

McKinnon could benefit from a fresh start elsewhere, and with former 49ers DC Robert Saleh working as the Jets’ head coach McKinnon could end up with Saleh.

Mickinnon’s successful past

McKinnon was elected in the third. Selected in the 96th round (96th overall) by the Minnesota Vikings in the 2014 NFL draft out of Georgia Southern.

During his rookie season, McKinnon played 11 games with six starts and led the Vikings with a 4.8-yard average and was second on the team for running yards.

For the second time in 2015, McKinnon led the team with 5.2 touchdowns per touchdown and recorded three touchdowns in his career.

In his third season with the Vikings, Adrian Peterson tore his meniscus and McKinnon was named the starter for Minnesota in week three. He was demoted from his starting position just before the game but ended up leading the rushing offense with 45 yards on 16 carries and a 2 point conversion against the Carolina Panthers He made his first start in week four against the Giants with 18 plays for 85 yards and a touchdown in the Viking victory.

At the end of the 2016 season, McKinnon had 539 running backs, two running backs, 43 receptions, 255 receiving yards and two running backs.

Minnesota hired Delvin Cook in 2017 and McKinnon’s starting position was recalled. And when Cook tore his ACL, McKinnon remained second on the depth chart. McKinnon finished the season with a total of 570 yards and three touchdowns and 51 receptions for 421 yards and two touchdowns. Minnesota qualified for the NFC Championship but lost 38-7 to the Eagles.

Goodbye, Mickinnon.
