San Francisco 49ers Sign This NFL Fan Favorite

The San Francisco 49ers have signed one of the most popular quarterbacks in the National Football League. The reigning NFC champions have signed journeyman quarterback Joshua Dobbs after backup Sam Darnold left to sign in Minnesota. The 29-year-old most recently played for the Vikings and Cardinals during the 2023 season where he went 3-9 combined on both teams and missed the postseason.

Josh Dobbs Brings Experience Behind Brock Purdy

The Pittsburgh Steelers drafted Josh Dobbs in the fourth round of the 2017 NFL Draft out of Tennessee. After sitting every game as the third quarterback rostered, Dobbs got his first chance in the 2018 NFL season where he threw seven passes and one interception in relief of Ben Roethlisberger.

After stints with the Jacksonville Jaguars, Pittsburgh Steelers (again), Cleveland Browns, and Detroit Lions, Dobbs was not able to start a football game until his time with the Tennessee Titans in 2022.

After quarterback Ryan Tannehill suffered a season-ending injury and backup Malik Willis was benched, Dobbs started the final two games of the Titans season, where he threw for 411 yards, two touchdowns, and two interceptions as Tennessee finished 7-10 and missed the playoffs after losing both games.

After signing with the Cleveland Browns in 2023, he was traded to the Cardinals before the season started. He was a fan-favorite in Arizona and kept them alive in most games despite the 1-7 record, the lone win against the 12-win Dallas Cowboys. After being traded to Minnesota, Dobbs went 2-2 in his four starts in Minnesota but was benched in favor of Nick Mullens for the rest of the season.

Now Dobbs will back up quarterback Brock Purdy on the San Francisco 49ers. He will likely get some playing time in the preseason and is a reliable backup if Purdy goes down. This is a good signing by the San Francisco 49ers.
