Joe Montana’s son gets a workout with the 49ers


The 49ers are inviting local draft prospects to the team facility to work out on Wednesday, and the son of a 49ers legend will be among those in attendance.

Nate Montana, the quarterback son of Hall of Famer Joe Montana, will work out for the 49ers, according to the Associated Press.

Although Nate got a lot of attention when he followed in his father’s footsteps and enrolled at Notre Dame, he never had much of an impact as a college quarterback. He played only briefly and went through multiple transfers, ultimately finishing his college career at West Virginia Wesleyan.

Montana probably won’t be drafted, but he has a chance of catching on somewhere as an undrafted free agent. If he gets a spot on the 90-man roster in San Francisco, he’d be the most popular undrafted free agent in camp.
