Nick Mullens ended last season as the starting quarterback for the San Francisco 49ers. He figures to be the favorite to land the backup job behind starter Jimmy Garoppolo when the 49ers kick off phase one of their offseason program on Monday.
The job won’t be handed to Mullens, though. He’ll have to compete with former third-round draft pick and fellow third-year quarterback C.J. Beathard. Beathard got the call to start after Garoppolo suffered a season-ending ACL injury in September.
Mullens, 24, started during a Week 9 matchup against the Oakland Raiders after Beathard was injured and never relinquished the job.
Mullens has been training this offseason with QB Country, a quarterback training and development center with multiple locations across the country.
