A native of Ballwin, MO, Gabbert attended the University of Missouri, where he started 26 of 31 games in three seasons and passed for 6,822 yards and 40 touchdowns. His 6,822 passing yards rank fourth in school history.

Celek (6-5, 252) originally signed with the 49ers as an undrafted rookie free agent on May 4, 2012. He has appeared in 28 games (two starts) over the past three seasons, registering eight receptions for 142 yards. In 2014, Celek was placed on the Reserve/PUP List on August 25 and was later activated to the 53-man roster on November 27. He went on to appear in three games and registered two receptions for 53 yards last season. Celek was later placed on the Injured Reserve List on December 17 with a foot injury.

A 26-year-old native of Cincinnati, OH, Celek played collegiately at Michigan State, where he appeared in 38 games (12 starts).
