The  said on The GM Shuffle podcast that the 49ers reportedly turned down multiple trade offers for backup quarterback Nick Mullens:

“There was about three teams trying to trade for Kyle Allen.  You know what’s interesting about the Kyle Allen trade?  This is really interesting.  The 49ers got a bunch of phone calls, when I say a bunch, a couple of teams, on Nick Mullens, the backup quarterback in San Francisco.  Nick Mullens.  They were asking about him, and they turned down every trade offer for Nick Mullens.  They wouldn’t trade him.”

The NFL is a crazy place sometimes.  Guys like Nick Mullens all of the sudden become hot commodities because of a handful of games they once played well in.  The teams should thank the 49ers for turning down the trade offers.  

Has nobody learned the lessons of guys like Matt Flynn or Brock Osweiler?
