San Francisco 49ers running back Jerick McKinnon had an up-and-down season, as his role seemed to change on a weekly basis. Now as an upcoming free agent, McKinnon controls where he lands next.

That being said, it doesn't appear the running back will be back in San Francisco. He sent a parting shot to the team on his apparent way out.

It sounds like McKinnon's mind is already made up on the issue, and he's not worried about ruffling some feathers before he officially departs.

The running back played in 16 games for the 49ers this season, starting in four of them. He rushed for 319 yards and a career-best 5 touchdowns, while adding 253 yards and 1 TD through the air.

McKinnon's involvement in San Francisco revolved around the playing status of Raheem Mostert, who struggled with injuries in 2020. McKinnon registered his four starts with Mostert out, seeing 12-plus carries in each contest. In non-starts, McKinnon didn't surpass more than 6 carries in the other 12 games.

This was McKinnon's first year out of Minnesota, as he spent his first four seasons with the Vikings, who picked him in the third round of the 2014 NFL Draft and then missed the entire 2019 season due to injury.

It appears the free agent running back is headed for his third NFL team as a free agent in 2021.
