San Francisco 49ers head coach Jim Harbaugh says that he is excited to work with quarterback John Skelton.

Jim Harbaugh has said that he is "excited" to work with former Arizona Cardinals quarterback John Skelton.

The San Francisco 49ers signed the free agent quarterback yesterday to replace rookie third-stringer BJ Daniels, who was waived earlier this week.

The head coach told the team's website: "I felt like that's what we needed from that third quarterback spot right now. I'm excited to work with him and that's really what it amounts to.

"Three quarterbacks that all have played in games and been in the fire and now we have three at our disposal. We have a great starter and two guys now, two guys to backup that have been in those games."

Skelton made 17 starts in three seasons with the Cardinals before being cut earlier this year.
