49ers QB Nick Mullens signs his exclusive-rights free agent tender

May 1, 2020 at 8:16 AM--


San Francisco 49ers quarterback Nick Mullens has signed his exclusive-rights free agent tender, according to Field Yates of ESPN.


Mullens, 25, recently switched agents. He is scheduled to make $750,000 during the upcoming season before becoming a restricted free agent in 2021.


Michael Lombardi of The Athletic reported last month that the 49ers turned down multiple trade offers for Mullens.

"The 49ers got a bunch of phone calls — when I say a bunch, a couple of teams — on Nick Mullens, the backup quarterback in San Francisco," Lombardi said. "Nick Mullens. They were asking about him, and they turned down every trade offer for Nick Mullens. They wouldn't trade him."

Mullens started eight games for the 49ers in 2018, replacing C.J. Beathard following starting quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo's season-ending ACL injury. Mullens completed 64.2 percent of his passes for 2,277 yards with 13 touchdowns and 10 interceptions in those starts.

The 49ers signed Mullens as an undrafted free agent out of Southern Miss in 2017. He did not play a snap during the 2019 season but was Garoppolo's primary backup all year.

The outlook for the 2020 San Francisco 49ers changed dramatically when second-year defensive end Nick Bosa went down with a torn ACL during Week 2 against the New York Jets. That's how good Bosa is. He is a game-changer on the edge of the once-formidable Niners defensive line that has also lost Solomon Thomas for the year to a torn ACL, and veteran Dee Ford is out indefinitely with a back injury. Joey Bosa of the Los Angeles Chargers told reporters on Wednesday that his younger brother, Nick, is staying with him and his parents during his rehab. "It's nice having them around," Joey Bosa said. "They're keeping the place [tidy] for me and food constantly running. I can't

Defensive end Nick Bosa hit a setback in his development. The reigning NFL Defensive Rookie of the Year suffered a torn ACL during Week 2 against the New York Jets. Who knows what kind of difference Bosa's presence might have made for the struggling San Francisco 49ers? They probably would have more than just two wins at this point. Bosa hasn't been the only injury, but his loss may have been the most impactful for the defense. The pass rush hasn't been as effective without the second-year defender. Also missing is veteran Dee Ford, who is out indefinitely with a back injury. Head coach Kyle Shanahan knows what a good pass rush can do for a defense, and the loss of Bosa has crippled the efforts to frustrate quarterbacks this season. The young pass
