Kellen Mond has found a new NFL home, albeit not with the San Francisco 49ers, the team he had recently expressed hope of joining. The New Orleans Saints have announced the signing of the veteran quarterback.


On Wednesday, Mond was one of two quarterbacks who showcased their skills at the 49ers' local pro day. While there was initial speculation about Mond joining the San Francisco roster, it seemed unlikely with Brock Purdy, Joshua Dobbs, and Brandon Allen already in the quarterback room.

"I was just contacted by my agent a few days ago and just figured it was a good opportunity for me to come out and throw," Mond told reporters after the local pro day. "And something I was kind of already familiar with, with the system out here, just being with [former 49ers passing game coordinator] Klint Kubiak back in my rookie year. So, a lot of the verbiage was already pretty smooth out here. But just getting another opportunity to throw is always good for me."

Mond reunites with Kubiak, who is now the offensive coordinator with the Saints.

The Minnesota Vikings drafted Mond (6-3, 211) from Texas A&M in the third round (No. 66 overall) of the 2021 NFL Draft. He also spent time with the Cleveland Browns and was on the practice squad for the Indianapolis Colts last season.
