The 49ers have a quarterback who other teams might want, and who apparently wants out himself.
But when the curtain fell on the first day of the league year, they didn’t subtract, they added.
According to Matt Maiocco of CSNBayArea.com, the 49ers signed quarterback Thad Lewis Wednesday, adding a guy who knows new coach Chip Kelly’s system.
Kelly brought Lewis to Philadelphia last fall, though he didn’t appear in a game.
He joins Colin Kaepernick, Blaine Gabbert and Dylan Thompson on the roster at the moment.
Lewis last played in 2013 with the Bills, and has also done time with the Browns.
Of course, the future of Kaepernick will be the main topic of concern there. As soon as Brock Osweiler left Denver, the possibility of a Kaepernick trade popped up, which is probably fine with him since his agents started spreading the word they wanted a trade last month.
