Jaguars Trade Gabbert

Jacksonville Jaguars Trade Blaine Gabbert.

 

RELEASE FROM THE ASSOCIATED PRESS:

 

SANTA CLARA, Calif. (AP) - The San Francisco 49ers have agreed to acquire quarterback Blaine Gabbert from the Jacksonville Jaguars for a sixth-round draft pick, apparently finding a capable backup for Colin Kaepernick.
    
The teams made the announcement Tuesday at the start of free agency, and the 49ers said the deal would be complete once Gabbert passes a physical. Gabbert started the first three games for Jacksonville last season before being benched in favor of Chad Henne, re-signed to a two-year contract worth $8 million Friday.
    
The 24-year-old Gabbert was the 10th overall draft pick in 2011 out of Missouri. He has thrown for 22 touchdowns in three NFL seasons, completing 414 of 777 passes for 4,357 yards in 28 games and 27 starts.
