What an off-season this has been for the NFL. It seems like every year there is one prominent storyline to the NFL off-season, and this year it just so happens to be quarterback turmoil across the NFL.
The amount of movement among starting quarterbacks in the NFL this off-season is simply unprecedented. Russell Wilson, Matt Ryan, Carson Wentz, Drew Lock, Davis Mills, Baker Mayfield and DeShaun Watson. There’s a good chance somebody was even left out of that sentence. One team however who seems certain in their quarterback situation is the San Francisco 49ers.
For the time being, the assumption is that Jimmy Garoppolo will be the starter in 2022 for San Francisco. However, there has been discussion of trading him as well. One would think of Jimmy G is in fact traded, backup quarterback and the 49ers first round draft pick from 2021, Trey Lance would be the starter. I
If you search on Twitter however, there were rumblings that Zach Wilson wasn’t going to be a long term fit with the New York Jets.l and that Trey Lance could potentially be an option as his replacement. But it sounds like those rumors have since died down pretty quickly as Lance appears to be Sam Francisco’s future at the quarterback position.
In other 49ers news, they did sign running back Jeff Wilson Jr to a new deal. This is certainly shocking as many did not expect Wilson to be with the team in 2022.
