    49ers bring in veteran QB option after Jimmy Garoppolo injury

    The San Francisco 49ers only needed a few hours after the conclusion of Sunday’s game to begin raiding the market for veteran quarterbacks to fill their decimated depth chart.



    Whether Johnson has any active role with the 49ers remains to be seen, though he figures to at least serve as a backup.
    Rookie Brock Purdy finished Sunday’s win and looked capable of holding down the fort, at the very least.

    The 49ers know Johnson well, which likely played a role in the team moving for him so quickly.

    He has three previous stints with the team, most recently as a practice squad member at the end of the 2020 season. That means he can come in with at least some familiarity with the offense, even if he will not be expected to start.






    49ers are signing QB Josh Johnson off the Broncos practice squad and on to their 53-man roster, per sources. During his 13 years in the NFL, Johnson has been a member of 14 different teams, the most for a player in league history. This will be his third stint with the 49ers.

    Mickey Joseph. He was a heck of a quarterback in his day at Nebraska and he still got a lot of fight in him!!

    Baker Mayfield isn't a bad option. I mean... he's never really been surrounded by all that talent. Someone should at least give him a look. He's had nothing but sh## around him and a sh## defense. With SF... that would all change. He could manage the game.

    mayfield would also be a locker room issue. guy is manziel2.0 and seems to ruin team chemistry. niners may have seen ther superbowl chances slip away, but one thing about it they are a cohesive team. they all play for each other and no doubt could still win a playoff game as a wildcard.
    they have the division on the line in two weeks @seattle

    He needs to stop doing those Nissan Heisman commercials lol yeah SF is in a tough situation. Purdy irks me a bit. John Lynch has to make a decision... I thought they were rather quick signing that Denver practice squad QB.

    Niners are smart to rock with Purdy because his teammates have familiarity with him and he didn't have to learn the offense because he's been there all year. I think they still have a good chance to win the NFC if not the whole thing because they're built around an elite defense and running game. Purdy doesn't need to be the second coming of Joe Montana or Steve Young he just needs to avoid costly mistakes like he did against Miami Sunday.
