Agent says 49ers QB Jimmy Garoppolo ‘on schedule’ in shoulder rehab, debunks trade rumor

Jul 11, 2022 at 7:31 AM--

Most of the offseason quarterback dominos have fallen, leaving San Francisco 49ers quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo's status among the last unknowns. The team was involved in trade discussions until Garoppolo's decision to undergo shoulder surgery on March 8 halted those talks.

NFL Media's Tom Pelissero reports that league expectations continue to be that Garoppolo will be traded by the end of the month. To whom remains the question.

As for the shoulder recovery, Pelissero received an update from Garoppolo's agent, Don Yee.

"He's progressing well and on schedule," Yee said of the 49ers quarterback. "We're optimistic about the upcoming season."

The 49ers expected Garoppolo to start throwing again in early July. That means the quarterback is close to doing so—if he hasn't already.

Yee also addressed a report by former NFL defensive tackle Dan Sileo, who stated that the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Cleveland Browns had reached out to the 49ers about Garoppolo and said that the quarterback started trowing two weeks ago.

"Over the weekend, a report came out that asserted that I had spoken to a media member about his future, but the report was false," Yee said.

49ers players report to training camp on July 26. The team would obviously like to trade Garoppolo before that date but has repeatedly stated that it is willing to hold onto the quarterback if an agreeable trade offer is not made. Second-year quarterback Trey Lance, last year's No. 3 overall pick, is expected to be San Francisco's full-time starter during the upcoming season.

Orlovsky says 49ers not a championship-caliber team with Jimmy Garoppolo, expresses concern for Trey Lance

The San Francisco 49ers' Super Bowl odds saw a slight boost thanks to a Week 2 win and the switch at quarterback. Jimmy Garoppolo replaces starter Trey Lance, who suffered a broken ankle in the Niners' 27-7 win over the Seattle Seahawks and will undergo season-ending surgery today. Keeping Garoppolo on a restructured one-year deal now seems like the 49ers' best offseason move. Once seen as an unnecessary luxury, holding onto the veteran quarterback keeps the team competitive this season. One ESPN analyst, Dan Orlovsky, doesn't agree with oddsmakers, though. He doesn't believe the 49ers are better equipped to make a championship run with Garoppolo at the

Jimmy Garoppolo still looking to establish chemistry with 49ers offense but says 'It's getting better'

49ers quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo says he's still looking to get on the same page with the rest of the 49ers offense after being away for most of the offseason and preseason but that things are getting better, slowly but surely. Garoppolo raised a few eyebrows after the 49ers' 11-10 loss to the Denver Broncos in Week 3 when he said he was still looking to get in game shape and still trying to establish chemistry with his teammates on offense following an offseason that saw him sidelined due to shoulder surgery and a preseason where he was working and rehabbing separately from the team while awaiting word on a possible trade. He spoke more about that subject

Fred Warner, Nick Bosa, 49ers defense shoulder blame in loss to Broncos

The Denver Broncos offense scored only nine points against the San Francisco 49ers defense on Sunday night. The Niners offense, Jimmy Garoppolo specifically, provided two of the home team's 11 total points after the quarterback stepped out of the back of the end zone for a safety. The 49ers offense couldn't get much going with Garoppolo at the helm. The quarterback finished the game 18-of-29 for 211 yards, a touchdown, an interception, and a passer rating of 81.3 in his first start of the season. Yet, the defense accepted the blame for San Francisco's record falling to 1-2 in a game in which they were favored. "We've got to play a full four-quarter game," linebacker Fred Warner said after the 11-10 loss in Denver. "It doesn't matter how dominant we are throughout
