This week’s mandatory minicamp for the San Francisco 49ers will be without Jimmy Garoppolo. According to people familiar with the matter, the Niners excused the quarterback from minicamp, according to NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero. It’s unclear whether this will have an immediate effect on the player’s performance this season. The team has yet to issue a remark on the subject.From any perspective, it’s unsurprising. Jimmy G has been out of the institution recovering from shoulder surgery. The Niners have also continued to look into trade options for the former starter. San Francisco’s required minicamp has been moved ahead from next week to this week (Tuesday-Thursday). Fines will be imposed on players who are not legally excused from necessary training.
This season, Garoppolo will earn a non-guaranteed $24.2 million base salary. The Niners have been selling Jimmy G. since Trey Lance is expected to be the starter in Year 2. However, despite the fact that shoulder injury has hampered his market, he is still on San Francisco’s roster. Garoppolo’s continued recovery away from the facility, while Lance cements his place in the locker room, is a sensible move on everyone’s behalf.
