Former 49ers QB Dylan Thompson signs with Rams

Jun 6, 2016 at 3:48 PM--


A former San Francisco 49ers quarterback will be signing with the division rival Los Angeles Rams, per Ian Rapoport of NFL Network. That quarterback is Dylan Thompson, who was Blaine Gabbert's backup last season once Colin Kaepernick was placed on injured reserve.


As Matt Barrows of the Sacramento Bee was quick to point out, it certainly does not hurt that the Rams' first opponent of the 2016 season are the 49ers at Levi's Stadium in Santa Clara.


The 49ers signed Thompson on May 5, 2015 as an undrafted free agent out of South Carolina. In September, he was released to allow the team to get their roster down to the required 53 players. He was signed to the team's practice squad the following day and then activated to be Gabbert's backup in November. Thompson was among the players released on May 6 following the signing of 21 rookies.

During the 2015 preseason, Thompson was 24 of 40 for 277 yards, two touchdowns, and two interceptions. However, during the team's final preseason game, which was his most extensive playing time in the NFL, Thompson was 17 of 25 for 255 yards, two touchdowns, an interception, and a passer rating of 106.2 in a 14-12 victory over the San Diego Chargers.

The 49ers currently have four quarterbacks on the roster. They are Gabbert, Kaepernick, Thad Lewis, and Jeff Driskel.

Current, former 49ers react to Jets hiring Robert Saleh as head coach

After a two-day interview this week, now-former San Francisco 49ers defensive coordinator Robert Saleh landed the head-coaching job with the New York Jets. It wasn't too long ago that many expected Saleh to be the frontrunner for the Detroit Lions vacancy. Filling that role didn't happen, but there was no doubt that Saleh was likely on his way out of San Francisco. "I don't know what's wrong with people if they don't hire him," head coach Kyle Shanahan said earlier this month. "I mean, he's as good as you can get, and he knows more about football, all three phases, and he's going to hire the best staff, knows about players, he knows what they're talking about, who doesn't know what they're talking about, and he also knows how to deal with people."

San Francisco 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan has expressed confidence that his defensive coordinator, Robert Saleh, would do well in any head-coaching job interview. Saleh interviewed with the Detroit Lions on Thursday, a job for which many consider him to be the favorite. One NFL insider suggests that particular interview may not have gone as well as Shanahan might expect or Saleh might have hoped. "Saleh did not do very well in the Detroit interview, I was told. And is not a shoo-in to get the job," Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle said during a radio interview with SportsTalk 790's Adam Clanton and Adam Wexler (via
