Free agent quarterbacks Matt Schaub and Brian Hoyer targets the San Francisco 49ers might pursue, the Sacramento Bee's Matt Barrows reports. What It Means: Schaub has been previously speculated as a fit in San Francisco after spending the last two years with head coach Kyle Shanahan with the Atlanta Falcons. Hoyer played for Shanahan with the Cleveland Browns, and has been far more effective in recent years than Schaub. The 49ers will likely be scraping the bottom of the barrel for veteran quarterback options, no matter who's available. Over Schaub's last 99 drop backs -- which...

49ers not looking for short-term quarterbacks like Matt Schaub

The San Francisco 49ers are not looking for a "short-term fix" at quarterback, head coach Kyle Shanahan said. What It Means: "You want to make a commitment to somebody," Shanahan said. "In order to do that, you better make sure you’re on the same page with everyone else and you put the time in, you talk to people who’ve been with these guys." These comments would seem to shoot down reports of Matt Schaub and Brian Hoyer being options. The 49ers could commit to an early-round pick like UNC's Mitch Trubisky and still have him compete with a veteran in camp. Over Schaub's last...

Falcons roster review: Quarterback

Falcons roster review: Quarterback

Remember when people thought Matt Ryan was done? Before the 2016 season started, the Atlanta Falcons fan base was split on starting QB Matt Ryan. While many felt that he was still a franchise QB who needed more time to adjust to a new offense, there were quite a few who felt the team should move on from the veteran QB. Some suggested drafting Deshaun Watson out of Clemson while others insisted that Matt Schaub should be our starter. Needless to say, those early opinions were put to death by the time the season came to an end. MVP 2016 Season Falcons 9th year starter Matt Ryan turned in his...

Is Matt Schaub headed to San Francisco?

Schaub goes where Kyle Shanahan goes, evidently. For the last couple of seasons, Matt Schaub has been Matt Ryan’s backup. The former Falcons draft pick returned to the place that gave him his start and his opportunity at a starting job in Houston via trade, and while he played very little, he sure did hold a clipboard well. Now he might be heading elsewhere. The destination will not surprise you. Falcons QB Matt Schaub could follow Atlanta OC Kyle Shanahan to SF, per sources.

Report: 49ers could go circa 2014 Raiders, sign Matt Schaub as potential starter

In 2014, the Raiders were severely desperate. They had just come off a 4-12 season in which their three starters were Terrelle Pryor, Matt Flynn, and Matt McGloin. Flynn was a trade acquisition who was cut after one start, Pryor is now a wide receiver, and McGloin was an undrafted rookie who is at best a serviceable backup. It was time for the Raiders to get serious about finding a starting quarterback. The first place they looked was Matt Schaub. At the time, Schaub was 32 years old, just a year removed from a Pro Bowl season, having thrown for over 4000 yards. He was let go by Houston...

Report: Shanahan wants to bring QB Schaub to 49ers

The Falcons backup quarterback could follow offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan to the 49ers, who can officially hire Shanahan after Super Bowl LI on Sunday, ESPN reported. Schaub surrendered his role after a stretch during which he had an interception returned for a touchdown in an NFL-record four straight games. In 2009, with Shanahan, Schaub led the NFL in passing yards (4,770) and also had career-highs in touchdown passes (29) and passer rating (98.6). Schaub, a Pro Bowl selection in 2009 and 2012, ranks 10th among active quarterback in passer rating (89.1), 15th in passing yards...

Falcons' Matt Schaub could follow Kyle Shanahan to 49ers

Atlanta Falcons quarterback Matt Schaub could follow offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan to the San Francisco 49ers this offseason, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. What It Means: Shanahan is expected to be named the Niners' next head coach shortly after the Super Bowl, but is also high on New England Patriots backup Jimmy Garoppolo. Schaub has started just two games over his last three seasons, and if he joins Shanahan in San Francisco, he would be employed as either a backup or a bridge to a future franchise quarterback. Incumbent Niners starter Colin Kaepernick is fully...

Considering the early stages of this rebuilding process, such a signing would not surprise me. The San Francisco 49ers have decisions to make at quarterback, and could enter free agency with zero quarterbacks on the roster. Blaine Gabbert, Christian Ponder, and Thad Lewis are all due to hit free agency. Colin Kaepernick is under contract for 2017, but is expected to opt out and become a free agent. Earlier this week, ESPN’s Adam Schefter said it would be no surprise to see quarterback Matt Schaub potentially follow Shanahan to Santa Clara. On Sunday, he tweeted that sources told him...
