San Francisco 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan says he expects Jimmy Garoppolo to be traded "at some point."

Jimmy Garoppolo is still a member of the San Francisco 49ers, despite free agency and the NFL Draft having passed on the NFL calendar. While most of the football world anticipated the team to move on from the 30-year-old by now and fully welcome in the Trey Lance era after picking him third overall last year, that hasn't occurred.

Niners head coach Kyle Shanahan was asked about Garoppolo's status during a press conference on Tuesday. Garoppolo is currently rehabbing from right shoulder surgery he had earlier this offseason.

"I anticipate him being traded at some point, but who knows? That is not a certainty, however "Shanahan explained. "When (surgery) occurred, it was put on hold. We'll see what happens once he's healthy."

Throughout San Francisco's playoff run, Garoppolo's thumb injury made headlines, but he was also suffering with a shoulder injury he sustained during the team's wild-card win against the Dallas Cowboys. Teams are unlikely to trade for a quarterback who hasn't been cleared to throw yet, so Shanahan's reference to the injury as the reason for the halt in trade talks makes sense.

Garoppolo's shoulder is anticipated to be cleared in late June or early July, according to an ESPN story earlier this month.

Since the team drafted Lance last summer, the writing has been on the wall for Garoppolo's exit. Despite enjoying success with Garoppolo when he was under centre, his inability to stay healthy has wrecked a couple of seasons for Shanahan's team, prompting him to trade up to take Lance.

While Shanahan has left the door open for the 49ers to keep Garoppolo, there is a case to be made for making a clean break and allowing Lance to completely handle the QB1 role rather than having another signal-caller who led the team to Super Bowl LIV lurking on the sideline. Garoppolo also has a $26.95 million cap cost this season, so keeping him on the roster at that number isn't a good financial decision.

Los Angeles, Indianapolis, and "Dallas" - though the Cowboys are technically based in Frisco and Arlington - were among the teams that submitted proposals for the 2023 combine.

The Combine has a strong possibility of becoming a touring road show that will visit North Texas in the future.
After decades of the NFL Draft being held in New York, the league made that cash-cow discovery in the draught.
North Texas, of course, has the same benefit... plus a large airport hub.

A former NFL draft pick reportedly was caught on video fighting a United Airlines worker and even knocking him to the floor at one point and bloodying his face.
A former NFL draft pick reportedly was caught on video fighting a United Airlines worker and even knocking him to the floor at one point and bloodying his face.

A former NFL draught pick was apparently seen on film striking a United Airlines employee, sending him to the ground and bloodying his face.
Brendan Langley, a third-round choice in the 2017 NFL draught, is the football player, according to TMZ.
Despite Langley's assertion that he didn't throw the first punch, the airline employee was not detained, according to the publication.
However, the employee advances, raises his fists, and slaps the passenger in the face:

"You saw that s**t?" the passenger yells after being slapped.
As another person — apparently a UA employee — enters the camera and raises her hand as if to stop the argument, nothing else happens.

The decision might be made shortly, and the suspension could be lengthy.
The NFL will make a judgement on whether or not to suspend Browns quarterback Deshaun Watson soon.
The evidence against Deshaun Watson continues to accumulate as each witness testifies throughout the pre-trial discovery phase.
Several Vegas betting shops are currently offering a 6 game over/under on suspended games.
Deshaun Watson was forced to sit out the whole 2021 NFL season due to a pending legal matter.

A member of Wabash Station inquired on the May 17, 2022, episode of the Powercat Podcast if Deuce Vaughn, who is entering his junior season, will declare for the NFL Draft following this season.
One is the potential that no matter what he does, he will not be drafted because his measurables will deter teams from choosing him.
"One way to look at it is this: Why go out early if you're not going to be drafted, especially not high?"
He's not going to be drafted as a running back.
He'll have to find a place for him.

The Las Vegas Raiders 2021 NFL Draft class got good reviews in a one-year regrading by Pro Football Focus

Pro Football Focus gave the Las Vegas Raiders' 2021 NFL Draft class high marks in a one-year regrading. The Las Vegas Raiders' previous NFL Draft classes have been chastised for making poor first-round selections.
That's probably a large reason why Pro Football Focus gave the Raiders' draught class a C last year.
Looking back on every team's 2021 draught class, however, it's clear that the Raiders' whole class made a significant effect in the team's playoff run.
The 2021 Raiders draught class, which has already been regraded as a B-, could end up being more fruitful for years to come.
