While quarterback Trevor Lawrence is still the anticipated first-overall pick for the Jaguars at the 2021 NFL Draft, experience will now be waiting for him in Jacksonville as well.

According to NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport on Wednesday, the Jaguars are expected to sign former San Francisco 49ers quarterback C.J. Beathard. It’s said to be a one-year deal.

The 27-year-old was a third-round pick at the 2017 NFL draft but never lived up to that hype. His rookie contract came to an end after the 2020 season.

Beathard made 12 career starts in his career with the 49ers. He has a 2-10 overall record in those outings and completed 58.6 percent of his passes for 3,469 yards. He’s also thrown 18 touchdown passes and 13 interceptions.

Beathard joins Gardner Minshew II and Jake Luton in the Jags’ current QB room. However, it was reported last week that Minshew could be traded.
