QB Damon Huard in for visit

Quarterbacks are like taxi cabs -- if you miss one, don't worry, there'll be another along soon. Such is the case for the 49ers, who entertained Damon Huard, 35, today at team headquarters. Huard entered the league as an undrafted free agent in 1996. He has played for the Bengals, Dolphins, Patriots and, most recently, the Chiefs, who acquired Matt Cassel this week.

Huard has started 27 games over his career, including three last season in Kansas City. His most prolific season came in 2007 when he completed 206 of 332 attempts for 2,257 yards, 11 touchdowns and 13 interceptions and a 76.8 passer rating. Huard had one of his best games (thanks, bsawyer) against the 49ers in 2006. He was an efficient 18 of 23 for 208 yards, two touchdowns and a 133.3 passer rating in the 41-0 route in Kansas City. If the 49ers signed Huard, it would not rule out the team signing another free agent and/or selecting a quarterback in the April draft.

In other free agency news, J.T. O'Sullivan is getting a hard look from the Cincinnati Bengals. If the Bengals sign him, you gotta believe that O'Sullivan would be able to edge out Carson's bro, Jordan, to become the No. 2 in Cincy. Good luck to UC Davis' finest ...
