49ers sending Jeff Wilson Jr. to Dolphins as deadline approaches

Christian McCaffrey’s arrival in San Francisco meant running backs were suddenly expendable with the 49ers.

And on trade deadline Tuesday, the NFC West team moved Jeff Wilson Jr. to the Miami Dolphins.

The deal comes after the Fish had sent Chase Edmonds to the Denver Broncos as part of a trade that brought Bradley Chubb to Miami.

The Niners get a fifth-round pick in the 2023 NFL draft for Wilson, who has 468 rushing yards in 2022.
