The San Francisco 49ers are reportedly working out quarterback Ian Book today, according to NFL Network's Tom Pelissero.

Book, a former fourth-round pick in the 2021 NFL Draft by the New Orleans Saints, spent one season with the team that drafted him before being waived, and spent last season with the Philadelphia Eagles, although he never suited up.

A California native, Book played for Notre Dame throughout his collegiate career, where he passed for 8,948 yards, 72 touchdowns, and 20 interceptions on a 63% completion rate.

The news of Book working out with the 49ers is an intriguing storyline, as the team has three quarterbacks on the roster in Brock Purdy, Sam Darnold, and Brandon Allen, who all are taking up 53-man roster spots.

Additionally, on Monday, head coach Kyle Shanahan confirmed that the 49ers came out of the game injury-free, meaning they'll have all their personnel and likely don't have to make any significant roster changes.

Perhaps, the 49ers are looking to add to their practice squad, but nonetheless, Book is coming in for a workout on Tuesday for the team.

49ers impressed with Isaiah Oliver vs. Rams: "He was a stud today"

Some wondered what the San Francisco 49ers saw in Isaiah Oliver, signing the cornerback to a two-year deal in free agency with the hope that he could take over the vacant nickel spot. Oliver didn't look overly impressive in training camp or the preseason. On Sunday against the Los Angeles Rams, Oliver may have proved his critics wrong. The veteran cornerback was everywhere on the football field, making game-changing plays and helping the 49ers to a 30-23 win. Oliver finished with three tackles, four assists, a pass defensed, and an interception. "Just kind of go get the ball in the air," Oliver said of the interception while speaking with team reporter Lindsey Pallares
