01:27 PM ET 04.29 | The San Francisco 49ers have invited undrafted free agent Nate Montana to rookie minicamp. Yes, that is the son of 49er legend Joe Montana. No pressure, kid. Nate bounced around the college ranks as a backup, going from Pasadena City College to Notre Dame to the University of Montana. If he impresses at the minicamp, the 49ers could sign him to a training camp contract.

You think the old man had anything to do with this or is it just a nice gesture by the 49ers?

Because the NFL is such a loving place, and not at all given to money and win-above-all.

Blood Lines, good for him, hope he makes it!!!

He shoulda gone up to Minnesota so he and Carter's kid could comfort each other after they got cut.

What's the betting on how long he lasts? Does he make it through mini-camp?
Joe threw a public fit when Brian Kelly told the kid he had no future as a QB at ND.
What will he do when Harbraugh cuts his kid?

He'll make a great scout team QB.

This is just a tribute to Joe.

Nate sucks, and San Fran doesn't need him.

Haha. Mean but humorous.

On a different note, watch out for Barry Sanders Jr. at Stanford. Kid is for real.

Harbaugh knows talent when he sees it.Colin Kaepernick was unknown until Harbaugh worked his magic.Alex Smith was washed up until Harbaugh came along and turned Smith around.Maybe lightning will strike again and Harbaugh takes Nate Montana on as his next pupil.The kid needs a shot and a coach and team to believe in him.Harbaugh and the Niners have the heart and talent to bring Nate Montana around.Hope he gets a chance to study with the best team our San Francisco 49ers.
