SANTA CLARA, Calif. (AP) - The San Francisco 49ers have signed quarterback John Skelton to a one-year contract, giving them a strong-armed third-stringer under center.
Skelton signed a day after the reigning NFC champions waived rookie B.J. Daniels, who still could be an option to join the practice squad if he clears waivers.
Skelton was cut by the Bengals on Aug. 31 when they set their 53-man roster. Cincinnati claimed Skelton off waivers when the Arizona Cardinals - the 49ers' NFC West foe - let him go in April.
The 25-year-old Skelton, hoping to catch on with a team for good in his fourth NFL season, completed 320 of 602 passes for 3,707 yards and 15 touchdowns in his three seasons with the Cardinals from 2010-12.
