It wouldn’t be honest to a playoff-caliber roster to possibility this season on a rookie quarterback forward of uninspiring backups Nate Sudfeld, Josh Johnson and Josh Rosen.
Sudfeld, a Modesto local, had no begins and 37 makes an attempt in 3 seasons at the Eagles. Rosen went 3-10 because the Arizona Cardinals’ rookie starter (No. 10 draft pick out) sooner than an 0-3 audition with the Miami Dolphins, then headed to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers apply squad final yr sooner than the 49ers signed him as an emergency backup for final season’s ultimate two video games (without a motion). Johnson is 1-7 as a fill-in starter with 268 passes since 2009.
