Rumors Link 49ers to Star Quarterback Ahead of Free Agency


The San Francisco 49ers took a massive step closer to Super Bowl 57 on Saturday, beating the Seattle Seahawks by nearly 20 points during Wild Card Weekend. The franchise may be focused on taking this playoff run one game at a time, and putting rookie Brock Purdy in the best position to succeed, but that doesn't mean their eyes aren't on the open market.

The latest NFL rumors suggest San Francisco has been linked to a star quarterback ahead of free agency.

According to a report from Ian Rapoport, the 49ers are among teams that will consider signing upcoming free agent quarterback Tom Brady.

Brady's spent nearly the entirety of his Hall of Fame career being linked to the 49ers at one point or another. Despite growing up less than 20 miles from downtown San Francisco, Brady was passed over by the 49ers for Giovanni Carmazzi in the 2000 draft. They've since experimented with landing the veteran a handful of times, but nothing came to fruition.

Brady's one-year contract with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers is up at the end of the postseason, and it's still unclear if he'll want to continue playing, but the 49ers could be a perfect choice if he does. Ending his Hall of Fame career with one or two seasons playing for the team he grew up rooting for, and touts one of the best defensive units in football? Makes sense to me.

The Brady-49ers rumors will be something every San Francisco fan pays close attention to this offseason.
