Jimmy Garoppolo started throwing 2 weeks ago, per report; Bucs, Browns may be interested in 49ers QB

Jul 8, 2022 at 1:21 PM--

Dan Sileo, a former NFL defensive tackle, reports on his show, The National Football Show, that San Francisco 49ers quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo started throwing two weeks ago. The team initially estimated that the veteran, who underwent shoulder surgery on March 8, would start throwing in early July.

"He just started throwing two weeks ago," Sileo said while speaking with Grant Cohn of Sports Illustrated. "... He started throwing two weeks ago—intermediate stuff with trainers and such. So two weeks ago, he started throwing."

However, Sileo adds that he doesn't believe Garoppolo will be ready for full-contact action once the 49ers report to training camp on July 26.

"He'll probably get healthy by the end of camp, maybe miss the first couple of weeks," Sileo said. "This is going to be [Trey] Lance's job. It was always going to be Lance's job because Garoppolo, health-wise, was not going to be ready."

On Thursday, Sileo also reported that the Tampa Bay Buccaneers might be interested in trading for Garoppolo. Of course, Sileo's track record regarding breaking 49ers news is unknown. However, he has a close relationship with San Francisco's general manager, John Lynch.

"I spoke with [Bucs GM] Jason Licht, and Jason Licht told me, prior to Brady coming back and coming out of retirement, one of the options was to go and try to get Garoppolo and bring him in to be the heir apparent and to take over for Brady after he comes off of his injury."

Sileo later said, "What I'm hearing is this: The Buccaneers have reached out to the 49ers to try to bring Garoppolo down to be the heir apparent for Brady when he calls it a career at the end of the year. Both guys are represented by Don Yee."

Sileo added that Cleveland Browns general manager Andrew Berry has also reached out to John Lynch and the 49ers.

"John won't confirm it for me," the former defensive tackle noted, "but he said there's multiple teams that have reached out to him about Garoppolo."

Sileo believes the Buccaneers are the best fit for Garoppolo.

Kyle Shanahan was feeling good on Monday night. The head coach's San Francisco 49ers won their third consecutive game, with the latest being a 38-10 victory over the Arizona Cardinals in an international matchup in Mexico City. The 49ers are getting hot, and have become a favorite to make some noise down the stretch and in the NFC playoffs, assuming things continue to trend upward for the team. "I felt real good about the guys," Shanahan told reporters after the game. "[The players] had a great week of practice. They've really been gelling these last three weeks.

Steve Young believes Kyle Shanahan's conservative play-calling is due to 49ers QB Jimmy Garoppolo

Is Kyle Shanahan's play-calling too conservative? Many watching Sunday night's game against the Los Angeles Chargers might say it is. The San Francisco 49ers offense scores an average of 22 points per game, ranking 18th in the NFL. Coincidentally, that's exactly how many points they scored in the win over the Chargers. Most would think the 49ers should score more on offense rather than stalling and settling for field goals. There is too much talent on the roster with playmakers like Deebo Samuel, Brandon Aiyuk, George Kittle, Kyle Juszczyk, Jauan Jennings, and recently-added running back Christian McCaffrey. On Monday, Shanahan was asked if he felt his offense wasn't clicking and if anything could be done to increase production in the second half of the season.

Jimmy Garoppolo is quietly turning in one of his better seasons. The veteran quarterback has completed nearly 67 percent of his passes for 1,931 yards, 11 touchdowns, and thrown just four interceptions. He hasn't thrown a pick in the past two games. Garoppolo has his critics, though. Just this week, Hall of Fame quarterback Steve Young suggested that head coach Kyle Shanahan's conservative play-calling might be due to a lack of trust in his starting quarterback. It's worth noting that Young has spent equal time complimenting Garoppolo's leadership and ability to endure a challenging offseason situation, waiting to learn where he would play this
