Jimmy Garoppolo has a no-trade clause for 2021 in his 49ers contract

Maybe Jimmy Garoppolo will be the San Francisco 49ers quarterback next season. Head coach Kyle Shanahan said on Tuesday that he expects that to be the case.

"I expect Jimmy to be our starter next year," Shanahan told reporters. "I mean, I expect him to come play with us this year (after he recovers from his ankle injury). We have six games left. We are not out of the playoffs yet. I've been on a team that was 3-6 going into a bye week that ended up winning their division.

"I think we have guys on this team capable of finishing this the right way. We've got to do it one game at a time, and I hope Jimmy can come back and be a part of that. But to think that we've made any decisions on anybody going into the future isn't the case."

There is another factor to consider. Albert Breer of Sports Illustrated reports that the 49ers can't trade Garoppolo without his permission until March of 2022. That's because the quarterback has a no-trade clause in his contract for the 2021 league year.

Of course, that doesn't necessarily mean San Francisco won't trade Garoppolo before or during next season. The quarterback would need to approve any move, though. The team could also release the quarterback outright without much of a salary-cap impact, should it choose to move in another direction.

Garoppolo is scheduled to earn base salaries totaling $48.3 million over the next two seasons and count around $27 million against the salary cap each year. After this season, the quarterback has two years remaining on the five-year, $137.5 million deal he signed in 2018.

John Lynch doesn't see a need to restructure Jimmy Garoppolo's contract right now

The San Francisco 49ers are moving forward with the assumption that this year's salary cap will be set at $175 million. It will probably be a bit higher, but general manager John Lynch would rather start with the floor. "Anything that we get (above $175 million), I think, is going to be a bonus and gravy, and will help us," John Lynch told Tim Kawakami of The Athletic on The TK Show podcast. "But if it's 175, we'll make it work, and I think we can keep a lot of these players together. You can't keep everyone, but I think we can prioritize. We'll have a very good plan, and I feel really good about our team, moving forward." Of course, quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo's

The 2020 season has tormented 49ers fans with an unprecedented and shocking number of roster moves and free-agent signings due to injuries, COVID, and poor performance. When the season began, there were dreams of pursuing a sixth Lombardi Trophy, and now, after a Week 17 loss to the Seattle Seahawks that dropped their record to 6-10, the 49ers and their fanbase have shifted their focus to the offseason and the 2021 NFL Draft. With 38 scheduled free agents on the roster, there is one player who John Lynch shouldn't question re-signing: Taybor Pepper. Early on in the season, the 49ers had a crisis at the long-snapper position. Kyle Nelson, the longest-tenured member on the roster after Joe Staley retired, was having trouble with his snap accuracy, at some points even bouncing

NFL Draft Scout's Matt Miller, formerly of Bleacher Report, joined KNBR on Monday and discussed a topic that is sure to dominate San Francisco 49ers-related headlines until March — Jimmy Garoppolo. While many in the media believe head coach Kyle Shanahan and general manager John Lynch may keep their options open when it comes to upgrading the quarterback position, both have repeatedly backed Garoppolo as the team's starter heading into the 2021 season. "As for the quarterback position, Kyle and I both have spoken, and spoken fairly directly as to the fact that we expect Jimmy to be our quarterback," Lynch said on Monday. "That's consistently met with other stories, but
