Hyde goes from a team that finished 5–11 to one that finished just short of the Super Bowl. We're going to go ahead and call that an upgrade.
Hyde is signing a one-year deal worth $2.8 million with $1.6 million guaranteed, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.
Hyde has 3,300 rushing yards in 64 NFL games. He twice finished with seasons of 900 or more yards on the ground with the San Francisco 49ers.
As a senior at Ohio State in 2013, Hyde finished with 1,521 rushing yards and 15 rushing touchdowns.
