BREAKING: The San Francisco 49ers have inked a deal with a former hopeful from the Green Bay Packers.

The potential for a prolonged conference rivalry between the Green Bay Packers and the San Francisco 49ers is brewing. The Packers appear to have identified their next franchise quarterback in Jordan Love, while the 49ers recently made a Super Bowl appearance with 24-year-old Brock Purdy leading the charge.

With both teams poised to compete in the playoffs for years to come, the latest development involves the 49ers signing a former Packers running back.

According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, Patrick Taylor, formerly of the Green Bay Packers, has agreed to a one-year contract with the San Francisco 49ers. Taylor became an unrestricted free agent in 2024 after the Packers opted not to offer him a restricted contract following his three-season stint with the team.

In their offseason maneuvers, the Packers acquired Josh Jacobs in a trade involving Aaron Jones, re-signed A.J. Dillon, and retained exclusive rights free agent Emanuel Wilson at the running back position.

As Taylor embarks on a new chapter with the 49ers, it’s anticipated that the Packers will address their running back depth through the draft in response to his departure. Signed by the Packers as an undrafted free agent from Memphis in 2020, Taylor recorded 65 rushing attempts for 261 yards and one touchdown, along with 14 receptions for 69 yards on 20 targets during his tenure. He also contributed significantly on special teams, logging 322 offensive snaps and 276 special teams snaps.
