Tyler Bray, San Francisco 49ers
It’s crazy to think that Tyler Bray is still only 30 years old. At this point, given his ability to bounce around for nearly a decade so far, he might still be around in five or even seven years as a backup with the way the NFL loves to recycle these backup quarterbacks.
Bray first came into the league as a developmental arm out of the University of Tennessee in Andy Reid’s very first season in K.C. Bray deserves plenty of credit for sticking around with the Chiefs for five full years and another three with the Chicago Bears (following Matt Nagy there as head coach). That said, he’s never once earned even a single game of playing time in the NFL to show what he can or cannot do. The sum total of his career is two appearances, once in 2017 with K.C. and another in 2020 with the Bears.
RIght now, he’s the latest addition to the San Francisco 49ers roster (practice squad, actually) as QB3 in the wake of Jimmy Garoppolo’s injury. He’s unlikely to see any playing time, but it’s nice to know he’s on the radar for another team in case of emergency, which is what happens so often in the league.
