Could San Francisco 49ers Explore Reunion With Former Player?

The San Francisco 49ers have high aspirations this season. After falling short in the Super Bowl for the second time in four years, the team hopes to run it back and try to finally taste victory in the NFL's biggest game for the first time since the 1990s.

While the draft has passed and free agency is not as active as it used to be, the 49ers still have plenty of options to improve their depth. Could San Francisco consider getting on the phone and trading for one of its former players?

Could The 49ers Trade For Quarterback C.J. Beathard From The Jacksonville Jaguars?

Cody Benjamin of CBS Sports suggested that Kyle Shanahan get on the phone with Trent Baalke and trade for former 49ers third-round pick and current Jaguars backup quarterback C.J. Beathard. The Jaguars would not mind dealing the 30-year-old as the team traded for former 2021 first-round pick Mac Jones from New England earlier this spring.

Behind star quarterback Brock Purdy, the 49ers have Joshua Dobbs and Brandon Allen as backup options. But it wouldn't be surprising if San Francisco also brought in Beathard for a reunion. It makes sense that the 49ers could bring back their 2017 starting quarterback.

He knows the system and has been praised for his toughness. While his time in San Francisco wasn't successful, as the former Iowa quarterback was 2-10 in twelve starts in the Bay Area, it would be a different story with him behind one of the league's top offensive lines and many options to throw to.

Trade Details

San Francisco gets quarterback C.J. Beathard

Jacksonville gets: 2025 seventh-round pick (from Carolina)

The 49ers would only be giving up a seventh-round pick to bring back Beathard, while the Jaguars get compensation for a player they might release before the season starts. This is a win-win for both sides in an AFC-NFC trade deal.
