The San Francisco 49ers are open to keeping Jimmy Garoppolo in 2022 despite the presence of Trey Lance.
Garoppolo is under contract for 2022 at $27 million but his salary is not guaranteed.
“There’s a chance for anything, but I think we’ve made it pretty clear that Trey is our guy of the future, whenever that will happen,” Kyle Shanahan said. “But it’s also nothing against Jimmy that we took him, but we do think Trey is our guy of the future. Like I’ve said, I think it’ll be really hard, if Jimmy is on it, for him to beat him out right away. So it’s kind of going like that right now, and we’re not thinking much past that.”
