Sport Kyle Shanahan: I’ve heard of no trade talks involving Jimmy Garoppolo
49ers HC Kyle Shanahan: 'We have moved on' from Jimmy Garoppolo to Trey Lance
There is no longer any doubt about who will enter preseason as the starting quarterback of the San Francisco 49ers. © Kyle Terada-USA TODAY Sports San Francisco 49ers quarterback Trey Lance (5) and quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo (10) warm up. According to Adam Schefter of ESPN, 49ers general manager John Lynch and head coach Kyle Shanahan met with veteran signal-caller Jimmy Garoppolo at some point on Tuesday morning. Following that discussion, Shanahan confirmed to reporters that the franchise has "moved on" to 2021 rookie Trey Lance as its new QB1. The move is anything but surprising.
It’s been two weeks since the 49ers made it clear that quarterbackwon’t be on the team this season, but that he will remain technically on the roster for now, while they hope to finagle some/any trade value for him.
Coach Kyle Shanahan was asked on Tuesday whether there’s any current trade interest in the man who took the 49ers to Super Bowl LIV and nearly to Super Bowl LVI.
“I believe that goes on with his agents, but none that I hear of,” Shanahan told reporters.
He aded that he’s heard of no offers for Garoppolo, either.
This means that any interested team is biding its time, knowing Garoppolo eventually will be cut. And that the 49ers haven’t cut him because circumstances will change, quickly and dramatically, if a starter with another team gets injured.
Shanahan clears up 49ers QB situation: 'This is Trey's team'
SANTA CLARA, Calif. (AP) — Jimmy Garoppolo reported to training camp for the San Francisco 49ers after spending the offseason away rehabilitating his injured shoulder. But the message from coach Kyle Shanahan about Garoppolo's future and the future of the 49ers was clear: “This is Trey's team." Shanahan started camp Tuesday by removing any pretense of a quarterback competition in San Francisco by unequivocally stating what had seemed obvious all offseason, that Trey Lance will take over as starter a year after being drafted third overall.“That’s nothing against Jimmy,” Shanahan said.
(Or, frankly, if San Francisco’s starter gets injured.)
For now, Garoppolo continues to come and go as he pleases. He’s on board with the strategy, because if a starter goes down elsewhere (or in San Francisco) he becomes far more likely to make something far closer than the $24.2 million salary that he’ll lose once he’s cut.
Even though the rosters reduce to 53 three weeks from today, his salary doesn’t become guaranteed, as a practical matter, until September 10. We’ll see whether the 49ers carry him for an extra 12 days, as they continue to wait and hope that a starting quarterback goes down — and that the market for Garoppolo goes up.
Currently, it has nowhere to go but up.
