‘There is not any method that is dangerous for our crew’

Nonetheless confused why the 49ers saved Jimmy Garoppolo on a reworked deal? Do not be — at the very least that was the message delivered by head coach Kyle Shanahan on Tuesday.

Shanahan painted an image of the 49ers’ largest QB transfer this preseason as being one thing of a no brainer, even when he did not suppose it was attainable that way back. “This was (a case of), ‘Oh my God, Jimmy Garoppolo’s accessible as a backup quarterback,'” Shanahan stated. “‘And that is sensible for him and is sensible for us. What else is there to consider?'”

In bringing again Garoppolo on a lowered wage, the 49ers had been capable of keep away from taking a giant monetary hit for nothing in return. Now, they’ve a quarterback returning who has began 45 video games for the membership and helped lead it to a Tremendous Bowl look and an NFC title sport up to now three years. That is insurance coverage that is onerous to purchase on this league.

“We now have a beginning quarterback as a backup,” Shanahan stated. “The remainder of the league had an opportunity to get him, and I really feel so lucky that they did not.

“There is not any method that is dangerous for our crew.”

The starter, in fact, is Trey Lance — and Shanahan re-emphasized that time simply in case anybody was questioning. He added that Garoppolo is the crew’s QB2 heading into the Week 1 sport on the Chicago Bears.

Previous to San Francisco’s closing preseason sport, the projections for Lance had been overwhelmingly optimistic. But Lance and the first-team offense doing little of be aware towards the Texans within the preseason finale — coupled with Garoppolo returning a number of days later — led to questions on whether or not the 49ers quietly are involved with their 22-year-old starter.

Concern not. Shanahan doubled down on his perception that the 49ers will take pleasure in bountiful riches on the place.

“There aren’t 32 beginning quarterbacks within the NFL,” Shanahan stated, “and we imagine we have now two of them.”

Some additionally speculated that there could be rigidity between Lance and Garoppolo on this association. One other potential problem that Shanahan was completely satisfied to shoot down.

“Once I advised Trey that Jimmy’s coming again, he stated ‘Superior,’ ” Shanahan stated. “There was no relationship to fix.”

And the hand-wringing over Garoppolo not having a playbook whereas he continues to work again from offseason shoulder surgical procedure? Shanahan took the chance to downplay the thought with a splash of humor.

“We now have zero worries about him not having a playbook,” Shanahan stated. “I haven’t got one both.”

Shanahan was requested why they tried to commerce Garoppolo if he was such an asset. The coach then threw some shade on the league’s different 31 groups for his or her inertia.

“The remainder of the league had an opportunity to get him,” Shanahan stated.
