49ers sign former Eagles QB, now have 4 QBs on roster
The San Francisco 49ers on Wednesday revealed the addition of previous Eagles quarterback Nate Sudfeld on a one-year agreement.
Sudfeld, 27, was a sixth-round choose of Indiana by the Washington Football Group in the 2016 draft. He was cut by Washington in 2017 and declared by the Eagles where he invested the next 4 seasons.
Throughout his time in the NFL, Sudfeld has actually played in simply 4 video games with no starts. He’s finished 25 of his 37 tosses for 188 lawns with one goal and one interception.
San Francisco now has 4 quarterbacks on their lineup with another most likely signing up with the club as the No. 3 total choice in this year’s draft. Head coach Kyle Shanahan generally likes to bring 3 quarterbacks on the last lineup with 2 active on video game days and another as a voice in the quarterback space.
The odd male out is most likely seasoned Josh Johnson, who signed with the club late last season and tattooed a reserve/futures offer this offseason. Considered that he’s quickly to be 35 and wasn’t rostered since November last season, his days as a practical NFL backup are most likely over.
Sudfeld ought to complete for the QB3 job with Josh Rosen depending upon the 49ers’ strategy with the third-overall choice.
