Report: 49ers’ quarterback corps to look a lot like the 2016 Bears’

The 49ers already signed former Chicago Bears quarterback Brian Hoyer, and now they’ll add his backup Matt Barkley, as well.

Barkley grew up in Orange County and played for University of Southern California.

He was the 98th pick (4th round) in 2013.

Barkley was drafted by the Philadelphia Eagles, who traded him to the Arizona Cardinals in 2015. The Chicago Bears picked him up after the Cardinals dropped him.

He went 1-5 as the Chicago starter this season, throwing 8 touchdowns to 14 interceptions. 49ersChicago Bearsjohn lynchmatt barkleyNFLquarterbackSan Francisco 49ers
