As the 49ers enter a critical offseason, the prevailing belief is that San Francisco will trade veteran quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo and fully turn the page to the Trey Lance era. However, ESPN's Adam Schefter isn't sold on the idea that Garoppolo will 100 percent be on a different team next season.
"I'm just telling you that Trey Lance was probably further behind than people realized,"
"Now, you're San Francisco. Now you can say, 'Jimmy Garoppolo is unquestionably one of the most popular and respected players in our locker room. Players love playing with him. We have him under contract this year at a very friendly $25 million cap number. And if we play with him this year, and we lose him after this year, we're going to get a third-round comp pick back in return.''
