"The more mad Jimmy gets, usually, the better he gets": 49ers' Shanahan and Lynch discuss Garoppolo's future

The San Francisco 49ers shocked the NFL world by pulling off a massive trade moving from the No. 12 overall pick up to No. 3 in next month's NFL Draft. It is clear that the team is targeting a quarterback to—at some point—replace current starter Jimmy Garoppolo. It remains a mystery who that might be. Up until that point, team brass had verbally committed to Garoppolo being the quarterback in 2021, with the caveat that NFL rosters are always fluid. Garoppolo could very well remain with the 49ers through the upcoming season. That's the impression that head coach Kyle Shanahan and general manager John Lynch gave while speaking with reporters on Monday. The two tried to keep Garoppolo abreast of the situation leading to the franchise- and draft-altering

The San Francisco 49ers picked up about $11 million in salary-cap space by restructuring the contract of defensive end Dee Ford. It became evident that the veteran defender wasn't going to be medically cleared by this week's deadline, at which point much of his salary becomes guaranteed. Ford was limited to just one game last season as he dealt with neck and back injuries. General manager John Lynch and head coach Kyle Shanahan spoke virtually with reporters on Monday for nearly 40 minutes. During the conversation, the former provided an update on Ford's recovery without going into too much detail. "Dee's doing well," Lynch said. "With that type of injury, you don't

49ers' John Lynch, Kyle Shanahan explain the reason behind so many one-year contracts

The San Francisco 49ers have signed or re-signed 22 players to one-year deals so far this offseason. They entered the offseason with nearly 40 scheduled free agents and brought back many of the team's priorities, including long-term deals for offensive tackle Trent Williams and fullback Kyle Juszczyk. Others, like defensive backs Jason Verrett, K'Waun Williams, and Jaquiski Tartt, returned on one-year contracts. That means, as of right now, the 49ers have 25 players scheduled to become free agents next year, with 29 more scheduled to become restricted free agents or exclusive-rights free agents.
