Nate Davis returns to 49ers on practice squad

The San Francisco 49ers bounced Nate Davis on Monday to make room for another quarterback, Troy Smith, who they signed to a one-year contract.

Davis returned today as the Niners signed the former Ball State star to the team’s practice squad.

It was an interesting move because 49ers coach Mike Singletary has been openly critical of Davis. The belief is he has upside but he needs to mature and become more professional. In the meantime, Smith provides the team with a better insurance policy this season.

San Francisco released Jarrett Brown, the former West Virginia quarterback from its practice squad to clear room for Davis.
