According to ProFootballTalk, the 49ers will work out 34-year-old Daunte Culpepper to see if he can compete with Alex Smith and Colin Kaepernick.
Clearly, Jim Harbaugh and Trent Baalke have decided Jeremiah Masoli and McLeod Bethel-Thompson are not NFL-ready backups. Should they have recognized this sooner and acted accordingly? There were better QBs available a few weeks ago. Trent Edwards comes to mind.
Also, Harbaugh may feel Culpepper is the best quarterback available. Do you agree? If not, who’s better? Personally, I think Jake Delhomme has more left in his tank.
