NFL QB Free Agents: Anybody On The 49ers Radar?

Now that the biggest wave of roster cuts is complete, various players are hitting the market, some via the waiver wire and some via free agency. The 49ers currently sit with two quarterbacks on their roster in Alex Smith and Colin Kaepernick. When 49ers head coach Jim Harbaugh discussed the current 53-man roster yesterday, he seemed to indicate the team would add a third quarterback in some form or fashion, whether it be on the practice squad or on the 53-man roster.

I went over to NFL.com/transactions and went through all the roster cuts this month. After the jump I've posted the 27 quarterbacks available following yesterday's cuts. They're listed in alphabetical order and do not include the quarterbacks released in August. This list also does not include players out of the NFL heading into training camp, such as Jeff Garcia and Daunte Culpepper. If you think I'm missing anybody of significance, let me know in the comments.

The most frequently discussed name on this list is Scott Tolzien. It will be interesting to see if he clears waivers. Maiocco has tweeted about guys like Kellen Clemens and Dan Orlovsky. Other than that, it's a mix of rookies and veterans, none of whom exactly wows anybody. Anybody jump out to you?
