49ers safety Tony Jefferson excited for 'ample opportunities' facing NFC West opponents

New San Francisco 49ers safety Tony Jefferson joined NFL Total Access on Tuesday and discussed his return to the football field. He hasn't played since Week 5 of the 2019 season when he suffered a torn ACL, and the Baltimore Ravens released him on February 14, 2020. Jefferson spent his first four NFL seasons with the Arizona Cardinals. He officially returned to the NFC West on June 7 when San Francisco signed him to a one-year deal. Jefferson is now preparing to face several talented quarterbacks in Russell Wilson, Matthew Stafford, and Kyler Murray. The veteran safety sounds more excited than concerned, though. "As a secondary player, you look at the NFC West, you see the quarterbacks, and the new addition of Matthew Stafford," Jefferson said. "I love



49ers' Kyle Shanahan: 'There's no open competition right now' between Jimmy Garoppolo, Trey Lance

Trey Lance may well find himself as the starting quarterback for the San Francisco 49ers before the season's out, but he clearly won't be starting training camp that way based on what head coach Kyle Shanahan said Tuesday. The 49ers obviously plan on Lance eventually being the starter over incumbent Jimmy Garoppolo after trading up to select him with the third overall pick in the 2021 NFL Draft. But as of now, the job remains Garoppolo's to lose. "There's no open competition right now in terms of they're getting equal reps with the same group," Shanahan told reporters Tuesday, one day before the start of camp. "Jimmy's coming in as the one and Trey's coming in as the two." Lance



Kyle Shanahan: Jimmy Garoppolo the 49ers' starter because "he's the best quarterback right now"

San Francisco 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan spoke briefly with Steve Mariucci of NFL Network after Saturday's practice. Naturally, Mariucci brought up the team's quarterback situation. The plan is to enter Week 1 with the veteran, Jimmy Garoppolo, as the starter. However, the team used a high draft pick to add Trey Lance, who is the quarterback of the future. Mariucci asked Shanahan to once again confirm that Garoppolo is the 49ers' starter and how the coach manages the practice and preseason reps between the two, with Lance needing experience to eventually take over the offense. "It's not bad with the one and two," Shanahan said. "And yeah, that is true. Jimmy's our starter because he's our best quarterback right now. And obviously, we think a lot of Trey, and



49ers rookie Trey Lance on relationship with Jimmy Garoppolo: 'No awkwardness at all'

San Francisco 49ers rookie quarterback Trey Lance stepped up to the podium after Thursday's practice, and several of the questions he was asked naturally focused on his relationship with Jimmy Garoppolo. Lance was the No. 3 overall pick. At some point in the future, he will take over the starting quarterback job. Right now, that job belongs to Garoppolo, who is likely to be the Week 1 starter when the 49ers take the field against the Detroit Lions. Some wondered if having a veteran and his eventual successor might create some locker-room awkwardness. But, more important, would it create an awkward situation in the quarterback room? All indications so far point toward the answer being, "No." Garoppolo was the first of Lance's new
