Saints sign Kellen Mond after 49ers tryout

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.

Brandon Staley has transitioned from working with one Bosa to another. As the head coach of the Los Angeles Chargers, he worked with four-time Pro Bowl pass rusher Joey Bosa. Now, he gets to work with Joey's younger brother, Nick Bosa, who also boasts four Pro Bowl selections and a first-team All-Pro nod in 2022. Staley joined head coach Kyle Shanahan's staff and will serve as the assistant head coach of the San Francisco 49ers. Speaking to reporters last week, he expressed his admiration for the Bosa brothers and considers himself fortunate to work with both.

49ers DB coach praises Deommodore Lenoir's big mental leap

The San Francisco 49ers hold defensive back Deommodore Lenoir in high regard. The team values versatility, and Lenoir has demonstrated to his coaches that he can be relied upon in various roles throughout the secondary. Whether lining up inside or outside, Lenoir's adaptability and consistent performance have made him an invaluable asset to the defense. 49ers defensive backs coach Daniel Bullocks believes Lenoir made a significant mental jump as a player last season, and the analytics back that up. Lenoir's 75.8 overall grade and 74.3 coverage grade from Pro Football Focus were career highs. Opposing quarterbacks had an 86.9 passer rating when throwing his way. "I say, mentally, he made his biggest jump [last year]," Bullocks told reporters last week. "I think
