The rumor mill wasted no time pairing the Detroit quarterback, Matthew Stafford, and the SF 49ers.
The rumor mill for the SF 49ers and the quarterback market in the offseason have been in full swing for this year.
If there’s a quarterback on the move, you can bet the Niners are either linked to him or the fanbase is clamoring for it.
The Houston Texans’ Deshaun Watson is easily the jewel of the market, but the hefty asking price he’s sure to warrant would make it a tricky situation for San Francisco to overcome given there are other teams like the New York Jets in a better situation to pay up.
