Breer: Jimmy Garoppolo’s 49ers fate dependent on Trey Lance’s offseason development
Jimmy Garoppolo has remained on the San Francisco 49ers roster far longer than anyone expected or predicted. The Niners have tried to trade the veteran, clearing the way for second-year quarterback Trey Lance. However, offseason shoulder surgery halted trade discussions, and the 49ers, for now, appear stuck with Garoppolo and his hefty salary.
The 49ers have maintained that they are comfortable holding onto Garoppolo if they cannot strike a deal to their liking.

Releasing Garoppolo would also net them nothing, aside from salary cap space.

San Francisco is unlikely to do their NFC West nemesis any

Instead, he feels both teams will make a move to prevent that from happening.

49ers rookie Danny Gray prepared for Trey Lance after practicing with “legend” in offseason
By Rohan Chakravarthi
San Francisco 49ers rookie wideout Danny Gray spoke with the media for the first time since his draft interview, as he prepared for the 49ers’ rookie minicamp, which is slated to begin on Friday.
Gray, who was selected with the last pick in the third round of the 2022 NFL Draft, 105th overall, is a player with electrifying straight-line speed, which was confirmed with his 4.33 40-yard dash at the combine.
However, Gray’s talents aren’t limited to just his speed; he works well with the ball in his hands and can be physical after the catch, despite his relatively slight 186-pound frame.
When addressing his skillset, Gray acknowledged the biggest development over his
