In February, there were reports that the 49ers might pursue signing quarterback Matt Schaub because his experience playing for Kyle Shanahan would come in handy as they install a new offense and look for a long-term answer at quarterback.
Per Schefter, it is a two-year, $9 million deal.
Schaub joined the Falcons last year and saw action in four regular season games while backing up Matt Ryan. He completed 1-of-3 passes for 16 yards in those relief outings and last started a game with the Ravens during the 2015 season. The Falcons would surely prefer that remains the case over the life of his new deal.
