Reports: 49ers sign QB Joshua Dobbs to 1-year deal

The San Francisco 49ers have a new backup quarterback, signing veteran journeyman Joshua Dobbs on Monday.

Dobbs and the Niners agreed to a one-year contract for $2.25 million with another $750,000 in playing-time incentives, NFL Network and ESPN reported.

Dobbs is projected to be the No. 2 behind Brock Purdy after Sam Darnold left for the Minnesota Vikings in free agency.

Dobbs, 29, is coming off a unique season that saw him traded twice and make more starts than he ever had in his NFL career.

The Cleveland Browns dealt Dobbs to the Arizona Cardinals at the end of training camp while the latter was still waiting on Kyler Murray to return from injury. Dobbs started eight games there, going 1-7, before the Vikings acquired him before the trade deadline after Kirk Cousins tore his Achilles.

Dobbs subbed in for an injured Jaren Hall in his first game with Minnesota and guided the Vikings to a 31-28 comeback win over the Atlanta Falcons. He ended up being the starter for four additional games, going 2-2.

Across those 13 games (12 starts), Dobbs threw for 2,464 yards, 13 touchdowns and 10 interceptions. He had two starts at the end of the 2022 season for the Tennessee Titans, the first two of his career.
