The 49ers have used their backup quarterback plenty in Kyle Shanahan’s tenure with the club. With Jimmy Garoppolo still slated to be the team’s starter in 2021, San Francisco is apparently looking at a veteran with plenty of experience.

According to NFL Media’s Mike Garafolo and Ian Rapoport, the 49ers will host Joe Flacco for a visit.

After Lamar Jackson emerged as Baltimore’s starter in 2018, Flacco spent the 2019 season with the Broncos and 2020 with the Jets. Flacco started four games for New York, with the Jets going 0-4 in those contests. He completed 55 percent of his passes for 864 yards with six touchdowns and three interceptions.

Flacco played under 49ers quarterbacks coach Rich Scangarello in his lone season with Denver. NFL Media’s Tom Pelissero reports Shanahan has long thought that Flacco would be a good fit for his offense.

The Ravens drafted Flacco at No. 18 overall back in 2008. He was Super Bowl XLVII MVP when Baltimore defeated San Francisco in the 2012 season.

  1. Say what you will about Flacco, but that week 9 MNF game against the Patriots last year was fun as hell. Dude was dropping dimes and playing some yard ball.

  2. Oh please, please, PLEASE 49ers sign him. If he gets in the game the NFC West will shred that statue formerly known as Joe Flacco.

    PANIC IN SANTA CLARA? Are you kidding me, dude?

    The last two months the biggest story in the WHOLE LEAGUE has been Russell Wilson’s “here’s my four teams, even though I haven’t asked for a trade.” You have one of the league’s most hypocritical jerks as your quarterback and WE are panicking?

    Wow, Seattle, you guys are delusional.

  4. Flacco has won more playoff wins and super bowl wins than Lamar Jackson and Defraud Watson combined. Let that sink in.

  5. Every time there is a post about the 49ers, the SeaChicken fans come here to dump on them.

    I suggest that they look at their own team. The 49ers, even with Garoppolo, have been to the Super Bowl more recently than the SeaChickens.

    Maybe WIlson isn’t as good as they think.

    Having said that…..Joe Flacco? Really?

  6. Flacco has the same number of Super Bowl wins as Russell Wilson. Plus Flacco never whines and makes excuses and demands.

  7. Flacco has more playoff wins and super bowl wins than Dakota, Lamar, Defraud, Stafford, Wentz, and Cousins combined. Let that sink in.

  8. If you can beat ’em, join ’em – Joe Flacco
    If you can’t beat, let ’em join you – 49ers

  9. If you put some motivation in him he can play as good as any quarterback out there. Otherwise plays like he doesn’t care..

  10. Flacco has the same number of Super Bowl wins as Trent Dilfer. Let that sink in.

  11. Funny how the one year dynasty fans come here to try and talk dung to us Niners fans. We should play along.
