Former Oregon quarterback Jeremiah Masoli, who was kicked off the team last June and who finished his career at Mississippi, wasn’t drafted in April. He recently signed with the 49ers, and he initially moved to running back.
Per Kevin Lynch of the San Francisco Chronicle, Masoli already has moved back to quarterback, switching from No. 29 to No. 3.
Whether it’s a short-term camp-arm thing, given that Alex Smith can’t practice until the league year officially begins, remains to be seen. Masoli said that he has been attending quarterback meetings, and that he’ll stay at the position for the time being.
