The San Francisco 49ers are light on quarterback depth right now. Jimmy Garoppolo is back running the show because of Trey Lance's season-ending injury. Behind the veteran is the youngster, Brock Purdy. 

Kyle Shanahan clearly needs to add another quarterback. It sounds like the NFC West franchise may soon be signing one. The team hosted four notable NFL quarterbacks this Tuesday. 

The list includes quarterbacks Kurt Benkert, AJ McCarron, Garrett Gilbert and Kevin Hogan. It's likely that at least one signs with the 49ers this week. 

"The #49ers worked out QBs Kurt Benkert, AJ McCarron, Garrett Gilbert and Kevin Hogan today," said Mike Garafolo.

This will be something to monitor the rest of this week. Expect a signing soon. 

The 49ers, meanwhile, will move ahead with Jimmy Garoppolo under center. He is more than capable of leading San Francisco to an NFC West title. He also has something to prove after being replaced by Trey Lance. 

The 49ers take on the Denver Broncos this Sunday afternoon.
