  Eagles | Gardner Minshew acquired by Eagles    Sat Aug 28, 10:17 AM

Jacksonville Jaguars QB Gardner Minshew was acquired by the Philadelphia Eagles Saturday, Aug. 28, for a conditional sixth-round draft pick. QB Nick Mullens was released.

Footballguys view: It's a good place for Minshew to go with QB Jalen Hurts as the starter. Clearly, Eagles coach Nick Sirianni wants more from his quarterback position. Hurts and Joe Flacco competed for the starting job in camp, and now Minshew will get his chance to impress - even though the preseason is done. We'll see how this messy quarterback situation plays out. The pick traded to the Jaguars can become a fifth-round pick if Minshew plays 50 percent of the snaps in three games. There's a good chance Minshew could do that and perhaps more.

  Jets | NYJ had interest in Nick Mullens    Wed Jun 16, 06:46 PM

Philadelphia Eagles QB Nick Mullens received some interest from the New York Jets before he signed with the Eagles, but Jets head coach Robert Saleh said the team will move forward with their current quarterbacks for the time being.

Footballguys view: The Jets interest makes sense. Most of the staff comes over from the 49ers, including OC Mike LaFleur, and Mullens is familiar with the system. Instead, the Jets move forward with Zach Wilson was their starter with James Morgan and Mike White competing for the backup job.

  Eagles | Nick Mullens joining Eagles    Mon Jun 14, 02:12 PM

Free-agent QB Nick Mullens (49ers) agreed to terms with the Philadelphia Eagles Monday, June 14. Terms of the contract were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: Mullens got his chance to start with the 49ers last year and was inconsistent as the day is long. Now, he's trying to earn a spot on the Eagles roster behind starter Jalen Hurts and veteran backup Joe Flacco. He's a camp arm right now and if he makes the 53-man roster it will be to hold a clipboard as a no.3 quarterback.

  49ers | Nick Mullens won't be tendered    Mon Mar 15, 11:53 AM

San Francisco 49ers restricted free-agent QB Nick Mullens (elbow) won't be tendered a contract.

Footballguys view: There was thought some time ago that perhaps Mullens could develop into a potential starter, but over the course of him playing that proved to be folly. Instead, he's looking more and more like a reserve-level passer who can be a backup in this league. He's rehabbing from elbow surgery and could be re-signed later in the offseason.

  49ers | Tender unlikely for Nick Mullens    Mon Mar 8, 05:51 PM

San Francisco 49ers restricted free-agent QB Nick Mullens likely will not receive a tender offer this offseason.

Footballguys view: There was once a thought that Mullens could be something more than a reserve quarterback. Then, he played some more and people determined that wasn't the case. Teams are unlikely to trust him even as a backup, but someone out there should give him a chance to compete for a reserve spot.

  49ers | Nick Mullens underwent surgery in December    Tue Jan 26, 03:30 PM

San Francisco 49ers QB Nick Mullens - an impending free agent - underwent elbow surgery in late December of 2020, and the damage was not as extensive as initially feared. As a result, he was able to avoid Tommy John surgery and is expected to be fully recovered by the start of training camp, according to NFL Network's Mike Garafolo.

Footballguys view: Mullens might have lost some money in the 2020 season. He was once again thrust into action as a starter this past season but did not look good. Mullens might not be more than a below-average backup.

  49ers | Nick Mullens officially to IR    Fri Dec 25, 10:49 PM

San Francisco 49ers QB Nick Mullens (elbow) was placed on the Reserve/Injured list Friday, Dec. 25.

Footballguys view: Mullens is done for the year and he may not be ready for the start of the 2021 season. He's a restricted free agent next offseason and has shown this year that he's nothing more than a backup-caliber quarterback. C.J. Beathard is starting for the 49ers to close out the season.

San Francisco 49ers QB Nick Mullens will make the start in Week 15 against the Dallas Cowboys, but head coach Kyle Shanahan said he could be replaced if Mullens doesn't curtail his turnovers. 'First and foremost,' Shanahan said Wednesday, Dec. 16, 'if he wants to stay out there, he's got to stop turning the ball over.'

  49ers | HC non-committal about Nick Mullens    Tue Dec 15, 01:43 AM

San Francisco 49ers QB Nick Mullens might not be the starter for the Week 15 game against the Dallas Cowboys. Head coach Kyle Shanahan said Monday, Dec. 15, that he was considering all options, and wouldn't commit to Mullens for a sixth consecutive start.

Footballguys view: We could see the 49ers make a change at the quarterback position here over the final few games of the regular season. With Mullens potentially on the outs, C.J. Beathard might get another chance at the starting gig.

  49ers | Nick Mullens struggles on Thursday night    Fri Nov 6, 12:50 AM

San Francisco 49ers QB Nick Mullens completed 22 of 35 passes for 291 yards, a touchdown and an interception on Thursday, Nov. 5, against the Green Bay Packers. He also ran once for no gain.

Footballguys view: Most of Mullens production came in garbage time, but he didn't make any embarrassing errors and should start against the Saints next week, where he'll carry garbage time upside again. He's a viable QB2/Superflex with Brandon Aiyuk and Kendrick Bourne (and possibly Deebo Samuel) back in Week 10.

  49ers | Nick Mullens finishes with 343 yards    Sun Sep 27, 03:56 PM

San Francisco 49ers QB Nick Mullens went 25-for-36 for 343 yards and one touchdown against the New York Giants in Week 3.

Footballguys view: Mullens was efficient without the team's #1 receiver and tight end against a Giants defense that lost Jabrill Peppers during the game. The Giants defense remains a unit to target with the Rams up next, while Mullens played well enough to give the 49ers reason to not rush Jimmy Garoppolo back with the Eagles up on Sunday night next week. Mullens looked like one of the better backups in the league - at least in this system - just as he did as an undrafted rookie two years ago.

  49ers | Nick Mullens likely to start    Wed Sep 23, 12:58 PM

San Francisco 49ers QB Nick Mullens is likely to start in place of QB Jimmy Garoppolo (ankle) in Week 3.

Footballguys view: No surprise here. Mullens is a quarterback the team has believed in for some time. He's a good game manager who can run the system as designed. The 49ers have been ravaged by injuries on both sides of the ball, so Mullens isn't a great fantasy option ...even in start-2QB leagues.
