The San Francisco 49ers were not very pleased with their backup quarterback situation and decided to bring in John Skelton. Skelton will be heading to the 49ers to be the top backup behind Colin Kaepernick.
You may remember Skelton from when he was playing quarterback for the Arizona Cardinals. During his 3 year stay with Arizona, he threw for 15 touchdowns and 25 interceptions. His stats were nothing to write home about, but he will be a solid backup for the mobile Colin Kaepernick.
Just remember that Skelton is strictly in San Francisco to be a backup and he should only be picked up off the waiver wire if Kaepernick becomes injured. Even if Skelton somehow gets an opportunity to play, his value will be limited.
