Report: 49ers invite Joe Montana's QB son to rookie minicamp
Nate Montana, son of 49ers legend Joe Montana, has reportedly been invited to the team's rookie minicamp next month. Nate Montana began his college career at Notre Dame and ended it at Division II West Virginia Wesleyan. He went undrafted.
The Sacramento Bee reports Nate Montana, son of 49ers legend Joe Montana, has been invited to the minicamp as an unsigned free agent. The news follows Minnesota’s reported signing of wideout Duron Carter, son of Vikings’ alltime leading receiver Cris Carter.
Nate Montana’s nomadic college career began at Notre Dame and included stints at Pasadena Community College, the University of Montana and West Virginia Wesleyan. At the Division II school last season, Montana threw for 2,480 yards and 19 touchdowns, leading the West Virginia Intercollegiate Athletic Conference in both categories.
He attended the 49ers’ local pro day last month.
Montana appears to be a major longshot to latch on with an NFL team, much less win four Super Bowls like his dad did. According to NFL.com’s Bucky Brooks, Nate Montana’s passes lack zip and “he has difficulty making pro throws."
