49ers among three teams to reach out to QB Ryan Mallett

Mar 8, 2017 at 8:51 PM--


According to Dianna Russini of ESPN, the San Francisco 49ers are among the teams that have reached out to Baltimore Ravens quarterback Ryan Mallett. Per Russini, the other teams showing interest are the New York Jets and his team of the past two seasons – the Ravens.


The 49ers are expected to sign Chicago Bears quarterback Brian Hoyer to a two-year contract on Thursday. Once signed, Hoyer will be the only quarterback on the 49ers' roster so there is a need to get bodies into the position.

Mallett, 28, was a third-round selection out of Arkansas by the New England Patriots in the 2011 NFL Draft. The quarterback also spent two seasons with the Houston Texans. Over his six-year career, Mallett has played in just 19 games and started eight. In those games, he has completed 55-percent of his passes for 1,779 yards, seven touchdowns, and 10 interceptions.

Mallett crossed paths with Hoyer twice. The first was for a year in New England (2011) and then for nearly a year in Houston (2015). Mallett actually battled Hoyer for the starting quarterback job with the Texans in 2015 but ended up losing the competition. Houston ended up releasing Mallett in October of that year and he joined the Ravens in December. Mallett started two games for the Ravens at the end of the 2015 season, winning one. In those two games, he completed 59.8-percent of his passes for 566 yards, two touchdowns, and two interceptions.

The San Francisco 49ers signed both of their first-round draft picks on Friday. That includes the No. 14 overall pick, Javon Kinlaw, who is expected to help fill the void left by the departure of defensive tackle DeForest Buckner. Analyst Charley Casserly joined NFL Network on Friday to discuss what the 49ers need to do to ensure there is no drop-off along the defensive front now that Buckner is in Indianapolis. Casserly calls the loss of the Pro Bowl defender the biggest offseason storyline for the defending NFC champions. "How do you replace him? Well, not with one person," Casserly told Mike Garafolo. "First-round pick, Javon Kinlaw, in the

NFL.com: 49ers' Jimmy Garoppolo among players under the most pressure in 2020

In his first full NFL season as a starter, quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo threw for the fourth-most single-season passing yards in franchise history, put up clutch performances in some regular-season nail-biters, and led the team to a division crown and the No. 1 seed in the NFC on the way to a Super Bowl appearance. That's quite a list of accomplishments. So why is Garoppolo ranked No. 5 on NFL.com's recent list of players under the most pressure in 2020? Adam Schein wrote that the 49ers' success couldn't be credited entirely to Garoppolo because of how talented the roster is. The NFL.com columnist calls it the "single best roster" in the

The San Francisco 49ers boasted the league's best pass defense last year, which was led by veteran cornerback Richard Sherman. He didn't do it alone, though. The group, consisting of Emmanuel Moseley opposite Sherman, and K'Waun Williams covering in the slot, earned a combined Pro Football Focus grade of 89.2 between the three players. That was good enough to rank it No. 2 on the analytics site's list of the NFL's best cornerback trios (h/t to Jeff Deeney). The trio of Stephon Gilmore, Jason McCourty, and Jonathan Jones with the New England Patriots was the lone
