SANTA CLARA — Don't expect the 49ers to pursue polarizing quarterback Tim Tebow, who the New York Jets released Monday morning after one tabloid-decorated season there.

Beside their past aversion to acquire Tebow, the 49ers already added a fourth quarterback to their roster Saturday, using a seventh-round draft pick on B.J. Daniels from the University of South Florida.

Colin Kaepernick is in the midst of his first offseason as the 49ers' entrenched starting quarterback. Also on their depth chart are Scott Tolzien, their No. 3 quarterback the past two seasons, and Colt McCoy, a three-year veteran acquired in an April 1 trade from the Cleveland Browns.

Those quarterbacks are expected to be joined by Joe Montana's oldest son, Nate, on a tryout basis at the 49ers' May 10-12 rookie minicamp.

Tebow's popularity has soared globally in large part to his outspoken religious views and immense charity work.

Last year, once Peyton Manning signed with the Denver Broncos instead of them, the 49ers had no interest in Tebow, who got traded to the Jets for a seventh-round draft pick.

Tebow, 25, won the 2007 Heisman Trophy and played on two national-championship teams at the University of Florida before the Broncos selected him in the first round (25th overall) of the 2010 draft. He seized the Broncos' starting role during a 2011 run to the playoffs, where he delivered a wild-card round win over the Pittsburgh Steelers.

In the 49ers' 34-0 win over the host Jets last season, Tebow was limited to a 1-yard run, and he had a 9-yard completion that resulted in a lost fumble.

The Jets drafted West Virginia quarterback Geno Smith in Friday's second round. They have four other quarterbacks on their roster: incumbent starter Mark Sanchez, David Garrard, Greg McElroy and Matt Simms.
