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.

Wake up, Kyle Shanahan. As of September 14th 2020, Super Bowl 55 looks like a distant pipe dream. Yesterday, the San Francsico 49ers fell to the Arizona Cardinals in the opener of the 2020 NFL season. After getting off to a blazing start, jumping out to a 10-0 lead, the 49ers couldn't keep the heat on and lost at home to a team that accumulated only 5 wins in 2019. This Cardinals team isn't special. Often fans can find solace in a loss by heaping praise upon the opponent. Not today. Arizona signal caller QB Kyler Murray will be praised in the media for his efforts, but in reality, Murray was inaccurate often and relied heavily on newly acquired star WR DeAndre Hopkins to carry him through this one. Murray threw the ball 40 times for 230 yards, registering a measly 5.8 yards
