Sources said Garoppolo, who underwent surgery back in March, was excused by the Niners from participating in this week’s mandatory camp, 根据多份报告.
His absence comes as no surprise amid ongoing talks of a likely trade.
Head coach Kyle Shanahan said back in May that even prior to Garoppolo’s surgery, the plan was to eventually work a trade – although nothing is certain.
“Nothing’s changed since the surgery, we knew where we were at before that, and then he got the surgery, so everything went on hold,” 他说, 根据ESPN. “I expect him at some time, most likely to be traded, but who knows. It’s not a guarantee and it’s been exactly on hold when that happened. And when he is healthy, we’ll see what happens.”
与此同时, Deebo Samuel was expected to attend team practice this week, 根据NFL网络, despite previously requesting a trade without explanation back in April.
The 49ers general manager, John Lynch, 当时说 that he couldn’t imagine a scenario where the team trades Samuel, and he remained confident that both sides could figure out a long-term contract.
“I can’t ever imagine wanting to move on from Deebo,” Lynch said. “We’ve got nothing but love for him and nothing but appreciation for what he’s brought, but you just don’t let guys like that walk, so I can’t envision a scenario where we would.”
An All-Pro player last season, Samuel totaled 1,770 yards from scrimmage and rushed for eight touchdowns with the 49ers. He also led the league with 18.2 yards per catch, 获得 1,405 receiving yards, and scored a combined 14 触地得分.
