San Francisco 49ers give Jimmy Garoppolo’s agents permission to seek trade, sources say

The San Francisco 49ers have given Jimmy Garoppolo’s agents permission to seek a trade with the veteran quarterback, sources told ESPN’s Adam Schefter.

Garoppolo, who is recovering from off-season surgery on his throwing shoulder, has been cleared for practice as the Niners prepare to start training camp next week, a team source told Schefter.

The Niners are expected to exercise caution this summer over Garoppolo, who underwent surgery in March – a procedure that delayed San Francisco’s efforts to trade him.

Niners coach Kyle Shanahan conceded in May that Garoppolo “is highly likely to be traded,” but then noted that a trade is “no guarantee.”

Sophomore quarterback Trey Lance worked as a starter during San Francisco’s offseason program, while Garoppolo, who has been the Niners’ starter since the end of the 2017 season, has spent most of his offseason rehab in Southern California. Garoppolo was excused from the team’s mandatory mini-camp in early June after not participating in the team’s off-season training program.

Veterans are scheduled to report to the Niners’ training camp on Tuesday.

Garoppolo, 30, is entering the final season of his contract and is scheduled to count $26.95 million toward the 2022 salary cap. That deal included a no-trade clause for the 2021 season only, and the 49ers have the right to sell him to any team of their choosing.

An acquiring team would take a salary of $24.2 million acting for Garoppolo now, but that salary isn’t guaranteed and interested teams could potentially work with him on a contract extension that could exchange the salary figure for guarantees lowers.
