Surprise, surprise: The 49ers are trying to trade running back Carlos Hyde, according to Benjamin Allbright.
In addition to releasing Navarro Bowman, Niners have received and made calls about RB Carlos Hyde.

Trading Hyde is the right move, as I have written since June. He’s a poor fit in the 49ers’ outside-zone run game, he’s injury prone and he probably won’t be on the team next season — he will be a free agent. Better to trade him now and get something in return for him, than to let him leave for nothing during the offseason.
The offense will be better without him.
