49ers Finalize Deal With QB Skelton

Posted By Matt Stein On October 2, 2013 @ 2:23 PM In News and Rumors,NFL | No Comments

The 49ers finalized the expected move for quarterback John Skelton Wednesday, announcing that he had signed a one-year deal.

The interesting part, however, could play out over the coming weeks.

The 49ers obviously liked the promise of rookie B.J. Daniels, but bringing Skelton onto the 53-man roster gives them another experienced backup along with Colt McCoy. Daniels could return to the practice squad if he clears waivers.

The 49ers have seemed hot-and-cold on McCoy all offseason, even before he took a pay cut. If they’re not convinced of his ability, bringing Skelton around will at least give them a peer to compare him against in practice, if they were thinking about making a change there.
