Hutchinson: Breaking down 49ers’ best backup quarterback options

“This is actually a fairly decent market for backup quarterbacks, with the likes of Andy Dalton, Tyrod Taylor, Mitch Trubisky, Teddy Bridgewater, Marcus Mariota and others available.”

49ers’ Deebo Samuel wants to add a field goal to his resume

“Samuel was asked by ESPN during Sunday’s Pro Bowl telecast if there was anything on the football field he hasn’t done that he’d like to get the chance to do. He said he’d like to get the chance to go for three at some point, just as his position coach Wes Welker was able to do during his NFL career.”

Branch: What’s fair value for 49ers’ Deebo Samuel? Why extension talks could be tricky (paywall)

“Samuel’s unique role in which he doubled as a running back during the second half of the season could make for equally unique negotiations. How should a first-team All-Pro wide receiver be compensated when his job description involves hazardous duties his peers aren’t asked to handle?”

NFL mock draft 2022: Jordan Reid’s new two-round predictions for top 64 picks, featuring six quarterbacks, Senior Bowl risers (paywall)

“Pitre really impressed me at the Senior Bowl, and he was one of the biggest risers from the event... He primarily played the STAR position in Dave Aranda’s defense at Baylor, but he has a better skill set than playing only close to the line of scrimmage. Pitre is a smooth operator in coverage with some range. With Jaquiski Tartt hitting free agency, the 49ers could try to get younger in their secondary.”
