Fooch's Note: I thought I'd hijack this FanPost (thanks for getting it up pwarren85) and move it to the front with some additional information courtesy of the 49ers. The 49ers have indeed released QB Damon Huard, meaning Nate Davis is no worse than the #3 QB (see how I worked that one?!)
Coach Singletary issued a statement on the release:
"I am thankful that we were lucky enough to have Damon here with us this offseason," said head coach Mike Singletary. "He was a professional in every sense. What he did with our quarterbacks was outstanding. He helped them to have a better idea about what it takes to be a pro. Not only did he provide them great tips throughout, but he helped build their confidence. It’s one thing to hear what you need to do to get better from someone who never played the game, but when you hear it from a guy like Damon you take his words to heart. I really appreciate his professionalism and his personality."
A veteran of 13 NFL seasons, Huard has thrown for 6,303 yard and 33 touchdowns in his career. He spent time with the Miami Dolphins, New England Patriots and Kansas City Chiefs before signing with the 49ers this past March. The 36-year-old native of Puyallup, WA, starred collegiately at Washington.
The 49ers have 73 players under contract with this move. Don't be surprised if they add veteran backups at tackle and/or fullback before the start of the regular season.
basically what everyone was hoping for. so thats good, should see a ton of playin time next week.
thanks to maiocco
