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 Pro Football Hall of Fame announced its list of 15 modern-era finalists, narrowed down from the 25 semifinalists announced in November, for the Class of 2021. There is one name on the list with ties to the San Francisco 49ers — current Niners general manager and former hard-hitting safety, John Lynch. This is Lynch's eighth consecutive year as a finalist.

6 teams with better odds than the 49ers to add Deshaun Watson before Week 1

Despite the fractured relationship, the Houston Texans remain the favorites to have Deshaun Watson as their starting quarterback to kick off the 2021 season. However, should the relationship be damaged beyond repair, a trade could be in the quarterback's future if he chooses to force a divorce. San Francisco 49ers fans would love to see what Watson paired with head coach Kyle Shanahan would mean for opposing defenses. However, that would also mean giving up a lot in terms of compensation to acquire the young playmaker, and oddsmakers have five teams — other than the Texans — listed as more likely destinations for the disgruntled quarterback. Below are the 10 favorites to have Watson on their rosters during Week 1 of the 2021 season, per Bovada and
