Jimmy Garoppolo to remain away from 49ers as he continues rehabbing shoulder

Apr 19, 2022 at 6:58 AM--

As expected, Jimmy Garoppolo will remain away from the San Francisco 49ers as he continues rehabbing his throwing shoulder. Ian Rapoport of NFL Network confirmed that the quarterback would remain off-site, per his surgeon's instructions. The 49ers report to the team's offseason program today.

"Garoppolo and the team are on the same page with that continuing and he won't be there when their offseason conditioning program starts today," wrote Rapoport.

Garoppolo underwent shoulder surgery on March 8 and will not be able to throw until closer to training camp. That has stalled trade discussions to the point where many wonder if the 49ers will be able to offload the quarterback this offseason. Many of the quarterback-needy teams have already made moves to acquire new passers, while the others may look toward next week's draft to do so, leaving nowhere for Garoppolo to go.

"Any time anyone gets surgery, especially on their throwing shoulder, teams are going to be a little more nervous on what they want to offer and things like that," head coach Kyle Shanahan said last month.

San Francisco still intends to trade the veteran quarterback, transitioning to second-year quarterback Trey Lance as the starter. But, right now, the team has no intention of releasing Garoppolo just to free up the over $25 million he is due to earn in 2022.

"We can't upgrade our team and get some good picks until people feel good about [Garoppolo's recovery]," Shanahan added. "I'm all right with that. I mean, we're not just getting rid of him to get rid of him. Jimmy's a good player that we all really like as a person and as a teammate. And we're going to wait to see whatever helps the Niners the most."

In the meantime, Lance will receive the bulk of the work in the quarterback room and once the team returns to the practice field. However, he may be without one of his best offensive weapons. On Monday, ESPN's Adam Schefter reported that wide receiver Deebo Samuel would skip at least the voluntary portion of the team's offseason program, saying he isn't expected to participate in any "on-field" activities.

That shouldn't come as a surprise to anyone. Samuel awaits a contract extension and is unlikely to return to the team until that situation is resolved. The 49ers don't have a mandatory minicamp until June 13. It lasts three days.

CBS Sports labels 49ers' handling of QB Jimmy Garoppolo as most questionable offseason move

Earlier this week, CBS Sports compiled a list of every NFL team's most questionable offseason move, and pointed to the Jimmy Garoppolo saga for the San Francisco 49ers, which still remains unanswered as mandatory minicamp has concluded. While there were several potential choices, such as San Francisco's contract negotiations with Deebo Samuel that ultimately resulted in a trade request by the fourth-year receiver, CBS Sports's Jordan Dajani believed that the outcome of the Garoppolo situation was the most questionable move. "We could discuss something related to Deebo Samuel here, but it seems

49ers' Jimmy Garoppolo ranked as 25th-best deep-ball passer

After being subject to a number of trade rumors this offseason, San Francisco 49ers quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo remains a member of the organization, although the franchise has made it clear that they've attempted to move on from the veteran signal-caller. One of the reasons that San Francisco could be looking to move on is due to Garoppolo's inability to consistently complete deep passes, which has hindered the 49ers on several occasions, most notably during the 49ers' Super Bowl loss to the Kansas City Chiefs during the 2019 NFL season. Earlier this week, PFF ranked the 2021 starting quarterbacks' deep passing by various

49ers' Jimmy Garoppolo hoping for a 'quick resolution' once healthy, per report

There has been some chatter that the San Francisco 49ers might be willing to hold onto Jimmy Garoppolo if they can't find a trade partner for the veteran quarterback or if an interested team tries to lowball the Niners. San Francisco had hoped to trade Garoppolo in March. The quarterback undergoing shoulder surgery halted all trade talks. Then the number of quarterback-needy teams greatly diminished. 49ers general manager John Lynch and head coach Kyle Shanahan have repeatedly indicated that they expect Garoppolo to be healthy enough to throw again by early July. We're almost to that point. On Saturday, ESPN's Jeremy Fowler reported that Garoppolo's
