Jimmy Garoppolo remains on the 49ers roster following Day 2 of the NFL Draft

Round three of the NFL Draft has officially concluded, and, by no surprise, Jimmy Garoppolo remains on the San Franciso 49ers roster.

Earlier in the day, it was reported that the 49ers were looking for the equivalent of a second-round pick in return for their veteran quarterback, which, due to his injuries and salary, was certainly out of the question.

Following the draft, head coach Kyle Shanahan and general manager John Lynch spoke with the media, regarding the quarterback situation, and shared optimism about their group heading into 2022.

"We've said all along it's going to take the right deal to get us to move him, and he's part of our team right now," Lynch said. "And so we're excited about that. We look at the totality of that position. We feel really good about it right now. We're extremely excited about Trey, excited about Jimmy, and Nate Sudfeld. There's a lot to like about him as well. So we're excited about that group."

Of course, the major question is around Garoppolo's $27 million salary for 2022, which has lowered the 49ers' cap space to amongst the lowest in the entirety of the NFL heading into the draft.

Despite the lack of a trade market, the 49ers haven't budged on their stance regarding Garoppolo, and could even carry him onto the 2022 roster despite his salary if they don't get the return they desire.

Garoppolo's trade market appeared to lessen even more on Friday as a rumored contender for the veteran, the Carolina Panthers, traded up into the third-round to select Ole Miss quarterback Matt Corral with their first selection on day two of the draft.

Per the Athletic's Jeff Howe, the Texans could be interested in Garoppolo following the draft, although that avenue still has much work to do if there's to be an agreement.

But, as for now, Jimmy Garoppolo is a 49er, and that doesn't appear to change by the end of the draft.

The latest news on San Francisco 49ers quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo was revealed earlier this week, as ESPN's Jeremy Fowler reported that Jimmy Garoppolo is on schedule with his recovery from a surgically-repaired shoulder and is expected to throw soon, while NFL Network's Mike Giardi added that the quarterback hopes for a "quick resolution after proving to teams that he's fully healthy.

49ers insider identifies NFL team that makes the most sense for Jimmy Garoppolo

Jimmy Garoppolo will be a quarterback on some NFL roster during the 2022 season. However, Matt Maiocco of NBC Sports Bay Area doesn't believe it will be with the San Francisco 49ers. The Niners attempted to trade Garoppolo in March, but all discussions halted when the quarterback surprised the team and opted to undergo shoulder surgery. That delayed things, which reduced the 49ers' options. As Garoppolo recovered, the list of quarterback-needy teams shrunk. 49ers general manager John Lynch and head coach Kyle Shanahan have tried to convince everyone that they are willing, if necessary, to hold onto Garoppolo in 2022 if a suitable offer doesn't present itself. That certainly isn't Plan A, though. Instead, once the quarterback is healthy, they hope to try to

It won't be long until 49ers fans finally find out what will happen with quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo, and if Trey Lance is indeed up to the task of stepping in to take over the offense. Garoppolo and Lance have been popular topics of conversation throughout the NFL this offseason, and recently a number of analysts on the NFL Network weighed in on what the future could and should hold for each of them. First, Brian Baldinger and former NFL players David Carr and Thomas Davis gave their thoughts on which team would be the best fit for Garoppolo if and when the 49ers decide to move him. Their answer -- the Seattle Seahawks. Of course, it's probably unlikely the 49ers would choose to trade Garoppolo to a division rival. But each analyst felt the
