49ers Reportedly Claim Scott Tolzien

How does a post become outdated in a matter of minutes? When the 49ers make their move at quarterback. Chargers beat writer Kevin Acee is reporting the 49ers have claimed former Chargers QB Scott Tolzien off waivers. There is no official confirmation from the 49ers at this moment, but it seems like this is gonna happen.

I sort of poo-poo'd the idea of adding Scott Tolzien in part because people were getting excited over his performance in a single game. However, there have been some tweets indicating the 49ers were interested in Tolzien even during the undrafted free agency period. And now it would appear he is on the team. As a waiver claim he has to remain on the 49ers 53-man roster. If they wanted to add him to their practice squad, they in turn would have to waive him and hope nobody claimed him.

The 49ers also reportedly signed McLeod Bethel-Thompson to their practice squad giving the team four quarterbacks, three of them rookies. The 49ers have also reportedly added Chase Beeler, Konrad Reuland, Cory Nelms and Joe Hastings to the practice squad.

What do you think about the decision to claim Scott Tolzien?

Fooch's Update: This also means somebody will need to be released. No word on that yet.
