Kyle Shanahan: Jimmy Garoppolo working toward next situation, 49ers not limiting him

Aug 5, 2022 at 10:09 AM--



Wednesday was an interesting sight at San Francisco 49ers practice. While you might think all of the attention would be on the field with the team practicing, many fans were interested in one player who has not been practicing—Jimmy Garoppolo. The quarterback was even seen interacting with teammates and fans.

That shows you what Garoppolo has meant to the 49ers and the fanbase over the years. The Garoppolo chapter is nearing an end. Second-year quarterback Trey Lance has taken over as the team's starting quarterback. San Francisco has been trying to trade Garoppolo all offseason. Of course, the veteran undergoing shoulder surgery on March 8 complicated things, ending trade talks at the time.

As the 49ers await a trade situation to develop, Garoppolo remains a popular presence at training camp.

"We have a real good relationship with Jimmy," head coach Kyle Shanahan said before Friday's practice. "There's no secret here of what the situation is. I think he fully understands the situation. We fully understand the situation. We make the best of it. Jimmy's out there. He's feeling better and better each day. I still see him.

"We have a real good relationship with Jimmy. He's done some really good things here. Fans getting pumped with him, and our players still love seeing him. That doesn't surprise me at all."

Garoppolo is allowed to do as much or as little with the team as he wants—while he remains on the roster. For now, that has involved conditioning work on the side as the quarterback ramps up his throwing efforts, waiting to prove to some organization that he can help in 2022.

"You have to report with the rules of the NFL today and stuff," Shanahan continued. "You have to report. So we made it the best for both. I think if Jimmy wanted to be in every single meeting and wanted to do everything, for sure, we would let him. I would guess that isn't what he would want totally. And when we asked him, that was accurate. He didn't totally want that. So he's just trying to get his body ready for, hopefully, the next situation he goes into."

Kyle Shanahan: 49ers comfortable with O-line situation, center battle

By David Bonilla
Aug 5

The odds of the San Francisco 49ers signing a veteran center like J.C. Tretter appear to be dwindling. Barring any injuries, the team seems content heading into the 2022 season with the players on the current roster who are competing for roles along the offensive line's interior. "We're very good with the people in our building," head coach Kyle Shanahan told reporters on Friday. "When you talk about a veteran, which everyone does, that just means it's always a lot easier when you've seen someone do it for 17 games. But no one does do that until you give them the opportunity. We see in practice every day now—we saw it last year—that we have guys in our building who are definitely capable of it. Now it's about getting into those games. We'll try to give them some



Kyle Shanahan explains Jimmy Garoppolo's presence on 49ers-issued depth chart, isn't aware of trade interest

The San Francisco 49ers released an "unofficial" depth chart before today's practice. Head coach Kyle Shanahan shared that people probably shouldn't read too much into it because not much thought goes into it. The 49ers Communications staff compiles it, not the coaching staff, so Shanahan may not have even seen it. Jake Brendel is competing with Daniel Brunskill for the starting center job. So why is Brendel listed as the starter? "Because we had to put one there," Shanahan explained. One other position group stood out. With Lance solidified as the starting quarterback, the depth chart lists Nate Sudfeld and Brock Purdy behind him. Fourth on the list,

Kyle Shanahan: 49ers playbook not changing for Trey Lance; Jauan Jennings tough to cover

By David Bonilla

Some expect the San Francisco 49ers offense to evolve with second-year quarterback Trey Lance at the helm. While that is probably true, it will not be by design. There won't be a drastic change to the playbook. Instead, Lance can extend plays and potentially get the football further down the field for some explosive plays. Head coach Kyle Shanahan spoke with reporters before Saturday's practice and was asked about the playbook. Is he considering changing it to take advantage of Lance's unique athleticism? "Not really at all," Shanahan responded. "I mean, you do the same stuff, and you just got a couple of more elements. When you have the threat of a running quarterback, that can change defenses. And when you see how that changes them, then you adjust to
