According to WR Torrey Smith, Gabbert reportedly organized an unofficial throwing session with about six receivers just a few days ago.


Gabbert, who many within the media feel is the frontrunner for the starting quarterback job in San Francisco, is entering his sixth season in the league and his third with the 49ers.

"He's done it his whole career," head coach Kyle Shanahan told reporters after the game. "Everyone knows Josh has played at a high level. I think

49ers receiver Deebo Samuel has made quite the stride in his third NFL season, as he's already caught 54 passes for 979 yards and seven total touchdowns through just nine games. Last year, Samuel had a mild sophomore season after an impressive rookie year due to a variety of hamstring injuries and a foot fracture, limiting the receiver to just seven games last season, in which he accumulated 33 receptions for 391 yards after a 57-catch, 802-yard rookie campaign. Deebo's rapport with quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo has been made evident this year, best encapsulated by a specific play on Monday Night against the Rams in which the veteran quarterback trusted his receiver to make a play even before Samuel was
