49ers Notebook: Griese hasn’t spoken with Garoppolo; Confidence in Banks; Raiders working out Kaepernick
On Wednesday, the San Francisco 49ers made their assistant coaches available to reporters, as they do every offseason. Below are some noteworthy tidbits from the interactions.
No contact with Garoppolo
On Tuesday, tight end George Kittle said he hasn’t spoken with quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo since the team cleaned out their lockers after the season. Head coach Kyle Shanahan said the 49ers still intend to trade Garoppolo, but also said nothing is guaranteed.
On Wednesday, San Francisco’s new quarterbacks coach, Brian Griese, said he has worked closely with all of the team’s quarterbacks this offseason, except for Garoppolo. In fact, the
Steve Young weighs in on the narrative that 49ers’ Trey Lance isn’t ready
Many have questioned Trey Lance’s readiness as the second-year quarterback prepares to enter his first season as a starter. The San Francisco 49ers are transitioning from Jimmy Garoppolo to Lance, yet both remain on the roster despite the team’s efforts to trade the former.
The 49ers have maintained that they are confident in their 22-year-old quarterback to step into the starting role. However, others have questioned that confidence, speculating that there may be some doubt in Lance’s progress from year one. Garoppolo remaining with the team this far into the offseason has fueled much of that.
The truth is, Garoppolo probably wouldn’t be on the roster had he been healthy. Instead, the quarterback is recovering from his March 8 shoulder surgery.

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.

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
Vic Fangio on hand for 49ers’ rookie minicamp; Trey Lance stops by to observe
In February, Vic Fangio met with the San Francisco 49ers, and some felt he might join the team as a consultant for the 2022 season. However, it was later reported that the longtime coach would be taking a year off.
Fangio served as the 49ers’ defensive coordinator from 2011-14 before serving in the same role with the Chicago Bears (2015-18) and then the Denver Broncos head coach (2019-21). San Francisco looked to bring Fangio back when Kyle Shanahan became the head coach in 2017, but Fangio couldn’t get out of his contract with the Bears.
