The San Francisco 49ers have yet to determine their starting quarterback for the upcoming season, with both Jimmy Garoppolo and Trey Lance in the running so far. While Garoppolo didn’t have the best season last time out, he’s a proven performer at this level.
However, it seems Trey Lance’s moment of shine has finally arrived at the 49ers, helped by the untimely surgery Garoppolo had to undergo on his shoulder. The injury will put him in a precarious position to make a comeback in the NFL next season.
Trey Lance is poised to take over as quarterback duties from Jimmy Garoppolo next season with the 49ers
Leading NFL analyst Jeremy Fowler said he has received hints from locales that the San Francisco 49ers may well pull away from Garoppolo and hand the reins of quarterback duties to Trey Lance for next season.
“The market wasn’t overly hot at the moment, largely due to Garoppolo’s shoulder surgery. Teams don’t know when he can throw; it might be later in the summer. So can he pass an exam? These are questions that teams are asking themselves right now.” about the bleacher report.
The report also claimed that the Carolina Panthers have also identified Jimmy Garoppolo as one of the possible trade move options as he recovers from his shoulder injury. According to Jeremy Fowler, all rumors point to rookie quarterback Lance being the starter for the 49ers next season.
“We mentioned the panthers earlier in relation to [Baker Mayfield]; They did their homework on Garoppolo too. They’ve checked all the options, and Garoppolo is one of them. So that’s something to watch out for down the road. For now, San Francisco is willing to stick with that $26 million salary, at least as a placeholder for now. They think they can do their whole business with draft picks and free agents until they get this all sorted out.”
“Meanwhile, Trey Lance has been training in the Bay Area. I’m told he has hints, at least informal hints from the team, that he’ll be the guy next year. He shall be. Now, does that mean they would still keep Garoppolo and that could potentially change the dynamic. But for now, Lance will be the starter.”
