If the San Francisco 49ers cannot bring Washington Redskins quarterback Kirk Cousins to the Bay Area, the team may bring an Atlanta Falcon with them. Matt Schaub may be the starter, according to reports.

The 49ers will be looking for a quarterback as Colin Kaepernick and Blaine Gabbert are not expected to return. The duo won a game each, as the 49ers went 2-14.

Kaepernick has announced that he will opt out of his contract and become a free agent in March.

With soon-to-be-named head coach Kyle Shanahan and general manager John Lynch, they are already beginning to look for a starter. The 35-year-old is a previous starter with the Falcons, Houston Texans and the Baltimore Ravens.
