There was a danger of it not happening because he demanded a trade earlier in the offseason.
But with him back in the fold, quarterback Trey Lance will have a primary target in the upcoming season.
Speaking of quarterback, Jimmy Garoppolo is still with the 49ers even if they have actively tried to trade him.
He has been on the trading block since the 2022 draft and there have been no takers since.
The surgery on his shoulder could be a reason for the low interest in him.
Likewise, he did not really impress during the 2021 playoffs as the 49ers kept on winning despite his inconsistency.
Even so, Garoppolo is an experienced quarterback that has led the team to a Super Bowl appearance.
Therefore, some teams could benefit from having him, as 49ers insider Matt Maiocco pointed out.

Garoppolo does look good in going through his throwing motions.
In that case, any team needing a quarterback should engage the 49ers in trade talks.
Which Teams Could Benefit From Having Garoppolo?
Of all the teams on Maiocco’s list, the Seattle Seahawks have the most pressing need for a quarterback.
Therefore, having Garoppolo could help improve their winning chances.
But then again, will the 49ers help out a division rival that has dominated them over the last few seasons?
