DON DEAL:The San Francisco 49ers have signed a former hopeful from the…

The Green Bay Packers and San Francisco 49ers may be entering into a prolonged conference rivalry. Green Bay appears to have secured their future quarterback in Jordan Love, while San Francisco recently reached the Super Bowl with 24-year-old Brock Purdy leading the team. It’s possible these two teams will vie against each other in the playoffs for many years to come. Additionally, today, news broke that the 49ers signed a former Packers running back.
According to Adam Schefter, Patrick Taylor, previously with the Green Bay Packers, has inked a one-year contract with the San Francisco 49ers. The Packers opted not to offer Taylor a restricted contract after his three-season tenure with the team, making him an unrestricted free agent in 2024. As part of their offseason maneuvers, the Packers acquired Josh Jacobs by trading Aaron Jones, retained A.J. Dillon, and extended a tender to exclusive rights free agent Emanuel Wilson as running backs.

In 2023, Taylor achieved career highs in snaps and touches with 226 snaps and 43 touches (32 rushing and 11 catching), respectively.
With Taylor’s departure to San Francisco, the Packers are expected to address their running back depth through the draft. Taylor, who joined the Packers as an undrafted free agent from Memphis in 2020, accumulated 65 carries for 261 yards and one touchdown, along with 14 receptions for 69 yards on 20 targets during his tenure. He also logged 322 offensive snaps and 276 special teams snaps while with the team.
