Don Yee, Jimmy Garoppolo’s agent, stated earlier this week that the quarterback’s recovery was proceeding according to plan.

John Lynch, the general manager, had stated that the team anticipates Garoppolo to start throwing in late June over draft weekend.

The 49ers can try to trade Garoppolo when Los Angeles orthopedic surgeon Dr. Neal ElAttrache gives him the all-clear to begin football activities. Before his unexpected March 8 surgery caught the 49ers off guard and brought trade discussions to a “screeching halt,” Garoppolo was “close” to being moved by the organization.

The 49ers might not find a taker this late with training camp rosters already set. Deshaun Watson’s ban length is still unknown to the Browns, thus they could end up being a potential landing destination.

However, Garoppolo earns $24.2 million annually, so any trade would likely require both Garoppolo and the 49ers to contribute to part of his contract. Garoppolo might possibly simply be released by the 49ers.

As a regular-season starter, Garoppolo is 33-14, and he led the 49ers to a 4-2 postseason record.

Trey Lance, who the 49ers selected with the third overall pick in the 2021 draft after trading up, is anticipated to take over as the starter this year.
