When a new head coach is hired in the NFL, he often looks to bring players with him from his old team.
Mike McDaniel is doing just that with the Miami Dolphins. On Thursday, the Dolphins signed wide receiver and special teamer River Cracraft, who spent the last two seasons in San Francisco.
Cracraft appeared in 15 games with one start for the 49ers the last two years. This season, he made three tackles and recovered a fumble on special teams
In 2020, the Washington State product caught six passes for 41 yards and returned five punts for 40 yards.

Now, he’ll join McDaniel in South Beach. The Miami Dolphins hired McDaniel, the 49ers’ offensive coordinator, earlier this month as a replacement for Brian Flores.
