NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport reported that Gabbert was traded to the San Francisco 49ers, according to a source informed of the deal. The 49ers give up a sixth-round draft pick in return. ESPN first reported the trade, which later was confirmed by the Jaguars' official website.
It's a great fit for Gabbert to potentially reshape his career as a useful backup. The No. 10 overall pick in the 2011 draft has mostly looked like an unmitigated disaster as a pro, but he's joining a great situation behind Colin Kaepernick. This probably spells the end of Colt McCoy's time in San Francisco.
