Minnesota Vikings running back Toby Gerhart is set to become a free agent in March. Gerhart is a valuable back up for the Vikings who have little depth behind Adrian Peterson, so they would be wise to re-sign Gerhart before another team scoops him up.
One of those teams that could be a potential landing spot for Gerhart is the San Francisco 49ers, according to ESPN Vikings blogger Ben Goessling.
While the 49ers make sense because Gerhart played college football for Jim Harbaugh at Stanford, the 49ers already have plenty of talent on the roster. With Frank Gore, Kendall Hunter, LaMichael James and Marcus Lattimore in the backfield, the 49ers could find better ways to spend their money in the offseason.
