Nate Montana gets another practice session

Jason O. Watson

The 49ers brought in Nate Montana for another workout session. Will the son of Joe earn something more?

The 49ers return today for another three days of organized team activities, but before that, the 49ers did get in another rookie practice session. Eric Branch is reporting that QB Nate Montana was back for another rookie tryout session. The 49ers held a rookie minicamp two weeks ago, and are allowed more such minicamps over seven weeks. The CBA describes this in Article 22, Section 7:

Each Club may hold a Rookie football development program for a period of seven weeks, com­mencing on or about May 16. During this period, no mandatory or voluntary activities can be held on weekends, with the exception of the Club's one post-Draft Rookie Mini­ camp, which at the Club's election may be conducted on either the first or second weekend following the College Draft. Players may only participate in Club activities for a maximum of ten hours per day.

According to Branch, Friday's workout featured the rookies on the 49ers roster, Montana, Sacramento State linebacker Jeff Badger and UC Davis linebacker Jordan Glass. This marks Montana's third time throwing for the 49ers. He was part of the rookie minicamp two weeks ago, as well as the local Pro Day before the draft.

While it is possible Montana could earn himself a training camp invite, odds still seem pretty long. The 49ers have a limited number of quarterbacks on the roster, so it makes sense to bring in Montana as an extra arm. If he proves something, all the better; but until he signs, I don't see him as more than a minicamp arm.

Montana has acknowledged the possibility of playing in the CFL or one of the arena leagues, if need be. It'd be a great story if he scored a training camp roster spot, but for now we'll likely have to track him in one of the other leagues. Anybody disagree with that notion?
