Jeremy McNichols: Does not make team
McNichols (hamstring) was released by the 49ers on Tuesday, Matt Barrows of The Athletic reports.
No surprise here, as McNichols was sitting at No. 5 on the running back depth chart. The 27-year-old was looking to bring his career full circle, as San Francisco drafted him in 2017. Inbetween, the journeyman has had stints with the Colts, Jaguars and Titans. It is unclear if the 49ers plan on offering him a spot on their practice squad or if the 27-year-old will need to look for a new opportunity.... See More ... See Less

Falcons' Jeremy McNichols: Signs with ATL
McNichols signed with the Falcons on Thursday, Michael Rothstein of ESPN.com reports.
This will be the eighth team McNichols has spent time with since the Bucs made him a fifth-round pick in 2017, and it'll be the fifth team he's played a regular-season game for if he makes it that far. His chances are better in Atlanta than they would be practically anywhere else, joining a backfield that otherwise has Cordarrelle Patterson, Damien Williams, fifth-round rookie Tyler Allgeier and Qadree Ollison as the top candidates for jobs. Patterson is the lock of the bunch, but he's unlikely to handle a workhorse role, leaving room for someone else to get regular touches. McNichols has made 30 of his 34 regular-season appearances in a Titans uniform, mostly handling passing downs for Tennessee the past two seasons. Last year, he had nearly as many targets (38) as carries (41), even though Derrick Henry missed half the season with a foot injury.... See More ... See Less

McNichols appeared in 14 games during the regular season and rushed 41 times for 156 yards while securing 28 of 38 targets for 240 yards and a touchdown.... See More ... See Less
Jeremy McNichols: Waived Saturday
McNichols was waived by the Titans on Saturday.
The Titans opted to elevate Jordan Wilkins from the practice squad, signaling the end of McNichols' tenure with the franchise. The fifth-year running back had a relatively critical role earlier in the season after Derrick Henry's season-ending foot injury, which ultimately allowed the scatback to set career highs in both receptions and receiving yards. The emergence of Dontrell Hilliard relegated McNichols to an offensive afterthought recently as the 26-year-old tallied just nine carries and zero receptions over the last two weeks.... See More ...
