49ers getting offers for C.J. Beathard

AP

If the 49ers want to move third quarterback C.J. Beathard in the next 28 hours, they’ll apparently have that opportunity.

According to Matt Maiocco of NBCSportsBayArea.com, the 49ers have taken calls from multiple teams offering late-round picks for a guy they’re not using at the moment.

Beathard has been inactive for all seven games this year, after losing the backup job to Nick Mullens. He started 10 games his first two seasons, with mixed results (12 touchdowns, 13 interceptions) for some shabby teams.

Teams are apparently offering picks in the “sixth-round range,” but the 49ers invested a compensatory third-rounder for him in 2017 (104th overall), and seem inclined to keep him.

At least unless someone makes a better offer between now and Tuesday’s 4 p.m. deadline.

  1. 3rd rounder would be great but in the end anything is better than nothing if we decide to move on from him after next year folks….. if we get back a 3rd round pick then the Sanders deal looks like a genius move 100%.
    Good luck niner fans let’s 🤞 for the best possible pick or picks 4 our statue by the Bay backup QB Beathard

  2. A sixth round pick is too little compensation for Beathard. They also got offers at the end of preseason for Mullens or Beathard, but they said they rejected those offers because they were not good enough. Frisco traded a third and a fourth round pick for Emmanuel Sanders and a fifth rounder, so they may want at least a fourth or fifth round pick to let Beathard go.

  3. The Panthers sure looked like they were paid off this weekend, letting guys run past them?

  4. Probably Lynch and his assistants calling from the parking lot trying to drum up artificial interest so they can recoup something close to the 3rd rounder they spent on him.

  5. The Niner’s would be real stupid to give up ‘Beathard,’seeing as he is far better than Mullens and for that matter i honestly feel that he would give Garoppolo a run for his money. He did exceptionally well during the pre-season, showing up Mullens and pulling Garoppolo’s weight for him.
