49ers Expected To Sign Kyle Juszczyk

The 49ers are expected to sign fullback Kyle Juszczyk, according to Adam Schefter of ESPN.com (on Twitter). It’s a four-year contract worth $21MM ($10.5MM guaranteed), according to ESPN’s Treavor Scales (via Twitter). Juszczyk was my No. 1 rated free agent fullback this year and was pretty much universally regarded as the best FB out there.

Kyle JuszczykPro Football Focus graded Juszczyk as its No. 1 fullback in the NFL in 2016. The fullback has shown to be particularly elite in the passing game, with PFF appreciating his receiving and pass blocking skills. Of course, Juszczyk still ranks in the top-10 for rushing and run blocking.

The 25-year-old (26 in April) has 97 career receptions for 769 yards and five touchdowns. The former fourth-rounder has spent his entire four year career in Baltimore. He’s gotten more involved in the passing game over the past two years, including a standout 2015 campaign where the Harvard product caught 41 passes.

    we go from a offense that doesnt use a FB. to the more normal offense that does use a FB. i know miller mess up but going to miss the beast that he was. but good to see we got the best FB in free agency.

    Making moves! Keep it up! Loving all these moves!! Can’t wait to see what else we do. Finally a front office that isn’t a fraud to make moves and is actually making good moves.

      we go from spending no money last off season to in one day singing 4 guys for our offense. these arent huge moves but more likely will improve the team

        I agree. Definitely should improve the team. Gotta add to the O Line and defense now. If we add another WR or TE that would be good but if not we can draft those positions and still would be an improvement.

    • Totally agree with you, Thronson5. Finally we have some leadership with Shanahan and Lynch that seem committed to bringing our dying 49ers back to life! Hopefully we’ll have a team worth watching this year. Free agent signings are a start , but hoping for someone with real QB potential in draft.

    Seems like a lot of money for a FB, but I guess it doesn’t hurt when they have a ton of cap space.

      He won’t play just FB. He wanted to play some RB and TE, so Shannahan and lynch were confident giving the best fullback with good versatility a good amount of money.
