Update: Huard signs one-year deal with 49ers

Veteran quarterback Damon Huard signed a contract with the 49ers on Wednesday after he threw a few passes for the 49ers’ brass to prove his right thumb has healed sufficiently.

Huard ended the season on injured reserve with the Chiefs after sustaining a broken thumb Oct. 19 against the Titans. He agreed to a one-year contract with the 49ers the day after the Chiefs released him Feb. 24. Huard just had to pass a physical to make the deal official.

 

Huard, who makes his offseason home in Seattle, will be on hand at the 49ers’ facility, beginning March 16 when the club convenes for a week of classroom work. The week concludes with a three-day predraft minicamp.
