Hangs up the cleats
LBFree Agent
Back
March 14, 2019
Coyle posted an update on his personal Twitter account Thursday, stating his back injury "will prevent me from returning to the field again."
ANALYSIS
Primarily a special teamer during his first three seasons, Coyle logged 57.4 percent of the defensive snaps in 2017 en route to a career-best 64 tackles in 16 games with the 49ers. The elevated role extended into Week 1 of last season, but he sustained a concussion and fractured vertebrae in that contest and missed the rest of the campaign. It's unclear which injury will force him to hang up the cleats, but Coyle is calling it a career.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2018
2015
2014
Coyle was leaned on heavily in 2017, making 64 tackles in 16 games. The 49ers brought Malcolm Smith on board from Oakland, however, so Coyle will likely shift to middle linebacker and take a backseat to Reuben Foster, who is facing a two-game suspension to start the season. Coyle would have to win the weakside linebacker job to maintain IDP relevancy past Week 2.
Coyle made the team last season as an undrafted free agent. He played mostly special teams, and when Bobby Wagner went down with an injury, he started only two games before the Seahawks moved K.J. Wright to MLB. Coyle's in for the same this season -- special teams and little defense.
An undrafted free agent out of Montana, Croyle comes to camp with a shot at a backup middle linebacker job. It won't be easy to unseat Heath Farwell, the special teams captain the last two years and a good MLB in his own right.
