Nick Mullens unsure which QB will start during 49ers-Eagles, discusses NFL future

Sep 30, 2020 at 10:18 AM--


The San Francisco 49ers will gauge where Jimmy Garoppolo is today and whether or not the quarterback can practice this afternoon. His status for Sunday night against the Philadelphia Eagles remains up in the air.

Even Nick Mullens isn't sure which quarterback will be out there when the 49ers offense takes the field. He started during this past weekend's 36-9 win over the New York Giants to cap off a two-game road trip featuring back-to-back games at MetLife Stadium.

Mullens finished the game 25-of-36 for 343 yards with a touchdown and a passer rating of 108.9. He joined KNBR this morning and was asked if he will start against the Eagles.

"I'm not sure," Mullens responded on the Murph & Mac show. "But you just take it one day at a time and prepare like you're always the starter. That's a good question."

This past weekend's game was Mullens' ninth straight start with 220-or-more passing yards, a mark that ties 49ers legend Joe Montana, who accomplished the same thing in the 80s.

"You're pretty humbled and thankful for what that says," Mullens said. "Obviously, Joe Montana has the resume and the legacy that he has established. But for me to even have a way to relate to him is pretty cool. It means a lot to me, and it's pretty cool."

Mullens was also asked about his NFL future, and if he thinks he might start next season either for the 49ers or another team. The quarterback is scheduled to become a restricted free agent after this season.

"That's a good question," Mullen responded. "The thing that I would say is there's a lot that can happen between now and Week 17. So much happens in the NFL. ... But I will say over four years, I have grown super faithful, you could say, to the red and gold and San Francisco."

You can listen to the entire conversation with Mullens below.

Kyle Juszczyk hopes to return to the San Francisco 49ers next season. Like so many of his teammates, he is scheduled to become a free agent. The fullback knows the situation, though. The team is pressed up against a salary cap that is expected to fall in 2021. That means some tough decisions are to be made, and Juszczyk is already by far the highest-paid fullback in the league. He is also the best and a key component in the 49ers' rushing attack. Juszczyk spoke with reporters on Monday via Zoom and was noticeably emotional while discussing his NFL future. "To be honest with you, it's just kind of a sense of (being) unsure," Juszczyk said of his NFL future. "I'm not totally sure what's ahead for me. I don't want it to be a sense of finality. Honestly, it's just
