If there was any question as to who’s starting under center for the San Francisco 49ers this season, head coach Kyle Shanahan put that to bed Tuesday morning.

“This is Trey’s team. That’s nothing against Jimmy. We made that decision a year ago. We’re not going to mess around with that anymore. Jimmy understands that fully. He’s a big guy. Nothing against him. It’s a business decision,” Shanahan said alongside general manager John Lynch to open the 49ers’ training camp Tuesday.

Jimmy G has been recovering from shoulder surgery since March, but is present at the team’s facilities, according to the front office duo. Garoppolo will not end up on the PUP list to start camp but is unlikely to take the practice field for the 49ers ever again.

All signs have pointed to Lance taking over starting duties since the conclusion of the 2021 season, with Jimmy addressing the 49er faithful during his exit interview in February.

“Faithful, thank you very much for everything. It’s been crazy, man. Just all the comebacks at Levi’s, comebacks on the road, ups and downs, it’s been a hell of a ride, guys. I love you guys. See ya,” Garoppolo said.

Since then, the veteran signal-caller has been on the mend, rehabbing in southern California as the 49ers excused him from OTAs in May, allowing Lance to take over the first-team reps.

“Jimmy knows we’re going with Trey. Trey knows we’re going with Trey, and our team knows,” Shanahan added Tuesday.

The front office duo also addressed the Deebo Samuel situation as contract negotiations have lingered into training camp. Deebo has been at odds with the Bay Area franchise since officially asking for a trade in April, which hasn’t materialized.

Lynch did confirm that the All-Pro wideout is in the building as talks have progressed in the right direction over the past few months.

“We’ve had productive and substantive talks. Don’t want to get people excited that we’re imminent because we’re not there yet. …. Deebo’s here today and we’re excited to move forward with him on this team. We’re focused on getting something done,” Lynch stated Tuesday.

Regardless of him being in the building, expect Samuel to “hold-in” until his contract extension is resolved with the team.

The former Denver Broncos safety also addressed another upcoming free agent on the roster: Defensive end Nick Bosa. Bosa, 24, hits free agency in 2023 after the 49ers exercised his fifth-year option in 2021, so expect them to hold out until then to get a deal done with the perennial defensive threat.

“If you look at our history, our cadence, most of our deals are done with one year left on the contract, and Nick’s got two years left, and so that doesn’t make it impossible, but it makes it more likely that it’s something that will be addressed next year.

“Nick Bosa is going to be a big part of the 49ers and will be paid handsomely…Man what a special player,” Lynch noted about his star edge rusher.

The first day of training camp practice starts tomorrow, July 27th at 10:15 A.M local time. Tickets can be purchased on the team’s official website.

For all things 49ers and NFL, stay locked in here on Sactown Sports.
