In reality, McCoy was gone as soon as the season ended. It was clear the 49ers were ready to move. In fact, they considered it several times last year, but he ended up making it through the season as Colin Kaepernick's backup.

The team also has McLeod Bethel-Thompson, who finished last season on the practice squad. The 49ers may also draft a quarterback as early as the middle rounds. Coach Jim Harbaugh has worked out several prospects.
