Jimmy Garoppolo begins practicing with 49ers

Mike Florio and Chris Simms retrace the unusual series of events that kept Jimmy Garoppolo in San Francisco and look at how it benefits the 49ers for the 2022 NFL season.

No one expected Jimmy Garoppolo to remain with the 49ers, not even the quarterback or the team’s decision-makers. But Garoppolo agreed to a revised contract to stay with San Francisco late last week.

Kyle Shanahan called it “pretty shocking” the way it came together.

So 37 days after the 49ers began training camp, while Garoppolo worked out on his own at the team facility, he rejoined his teammates at practice.

Matt Maiocco of posted a video of Garoppolo throwing in practice along with the team’s other quarterbacks.

Garoppolo will serve as Trey Lance’s backup this season as the highest-paid backup quarterback in the league.
