49ers add former Eagles quarterback to mix ahead of NFL Draft

Three weeks before drafting a quarterback at the No. 3 spot, the 49ers have already added another to their mix.

Nate Sudfeld, a Modesto native, signed a one-year deal Wednesday, presumably to help with whatever workload awaits in the offseason program that is set to begin April 19.

Sudfeld is a Modesto Christian and Indiana University product who was a 2016 sixth-round pick by Washington. He spent the past four seasons with the Philadelphia Eagles, totaling one touchdown, one interception and one Super Bowl ring, the latter as a 2017 backup. He completed 25 of 37 passes for 188 yards in four games.

That makes four quarterbacks on the 49ers’ roster: Jimmy Garoppolo, Josh Johnson, Josh Rosen and Sudfeld.
