Your daily San Francisco 49ers news for Monday, March 14th, 2022

Tom Brady un-retires, announces return to Buccaneers

“There had been some long offseason speculation about whether Brady would angle for a move to the 49ers, his hometown team.

It appears that speculation was just that, but Brady will have a homecoming. His Buccaneers will face the 49ers in Santa Clara this year.”

ESPN insider names Marcus Mariota as option for 49ers to pair with Trey Lance

“He could get his shot in Indy, as Dan pointed out. Another option is San Francisco, assuming it trades Jimmy Garoppolo. Mariota could start games while Trey Lance continues to develop, knowing the two have similar skill sets as mobile quarterbacks with run-pass option ability.”

49ers interested in Chiefs edge rusher Frank Clark [report]

“According to ESPN’s Jeremy Fowler, Frank Clark, the Chiefs edge rusher, could be a target for San Francisco after Kansas City cuts, releases or restructures his contract. Fowler reports his cap hit of $26.3 million is “untenable” for the Chiefs.”

49ers had formal meeting with one of draft’s most versatile prospects

“Montana State linebacker Troy Andersen is perhaps the most unique prospect in the 2022 NFL draft. The two-time All-Conference linebacker began his career as an All-Conference quarterback in 2018. The 49ers love versatility and Andersen’s skill set as a do-everything player makes it easy to see why San Francisco had a formal meeting with him at the combine per the Draft Network’s Justin Melo.”

Branch: 49ers mailbag: Are they really banking on Nate Sudfeld to save the season if necessary? (paywall)

“My takeaway? Shanahan isn’t ripping up his offense, as he did with rookie Robert Griffin III in Washington in 2012, to account for Lance’s mobility. That is, the 49ers will add wrinkles that play to Lance’s strengths, but the tenets of Shanahan’s system will remain, allowing a QB such as Sudfeld to take over the job seamlessly.”
