  • Papa thinks that backup QB Sam Darnold is “perfect” for the 49ers’ system

Reports surfaced Wednesday that San Francisco 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan has named quarterback Sam Darnold as the team’s backup QB. The move means that fellow QB Trey Lance is on the fringes of the roster, with the team expected to explore options for the former third-overall pick.
