Nate Montana (son of Joe) will try out for 49ers

Duron Carter won’t be the only son of a Pro Football Hall of Famer trying out for a spot his dad’s old team in the coming weeks.

Matt Barrows of the Sacramento Bee reports that quarterback Nate Montana will try out for the 49ers at their rookie minicamp May 10-12 in hopes of earning a roster spot on the team that won four Super Bowls with his father Joe under center. Montana tried to follow in his father’s footsteps at Notre Dame, but that didn’t work out all that well and Montana bounced through three different schools during his college career.

He worked out for the Niners along with other players from the surrounding area shortly before the draft and Montana’s agent told Barrows that he’s trying to line up another tryout with a team holding their rookie minicamp this weekend.

“A couple of teams have asked about him,” Marty Magid said. “We’ll find out this week.”
Montana won’t be the only roster hopeful with family ties to the Niners. Cam Inman of the Bay Area News Group reports that Andre Davis, the older brother of tackle Anthony Davis, will try out for the team after finishing his career as a defensive end at NAIA school Kentucky Christian.
