49ers sign Josh McCown

SANTA CLARA —

According to Matt Maiocco, the 49ers have signed 32-year old Quarterback Josh McCown.

Quarterback news seemed imminent when Jim Harbaugh walked out to practice with the current third-string QB, Jeremiah Masoli. The two were discussing something, and ten feet away Trent Baalke and Alex Smith were discussing something sternly as well.

Right after these discussions, someone with platinum blond hair walked out of the 49ers locker room wearing the No. 9. This was Josh McCown. As I’m writing this, he’s taking snaps in practice.

Like Daunte Culpepper, whom the 49ers worked out on Monday, McCown played his 2010 in the UFL, but he threw for just over half of Culpepper’s passing yards.

When asked the terms of the contract, GM Trent Baalke told a reporter to look it up on the internet. I will give you that information when it becomes available.

I’m running back out to practice. Talk to you soon.
