The 49ers released veteran Damon Huard for the more sexy Nate Davis. Heading into training camp and preseason it looked like Huard was the safe option to land the No. 3 quarterback spot, that was until rookie 5th round pick Nate Davis took the field. With Nate’s performance over the past two preseason, it was obvious Huard was expendable. Here is what OC Jimmy Raye had to say about Davis.
“He has a calm demeanor about him,” “He has an ability to go fast and not hurry, and if a guy is open he can hit him.”
With the release of Huard that solidifies the No. 3 spot to the rookie, who has a spot waiting for him on the 53 man roster. After the past two preseason games watching Nate move the offense and his passing ability, Shaun Hill and Alex Smith better watch out. A screw up from either one of them and Nate is moving his way up.
