San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Deebo Samuel hasn't officially rescinded his trade request from earlier this offseason, but he did show up for the team's mandatory minicamp, which is a positive. There's also not a lot of league-wide chatter about the potential for a trade right now. Of course, San Francisco continues to say that they have no interest in trading Samuel, who finished as the WR2 in fantasy last year, behind only Los Angeles Rams receiver Cooper Kupp. The 26-year-old Samuel apparently didn't care for being used as a running back in 2021, but that was mostly out of necessity due to all of the team's RB injuries. It remains to be seen if the two sides can work out a long-term contract extension, but as of right now, Samuel remains a strong WR1 target that will most likely remain with the team.
San Francisco 49ers quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo (shoulder) remains on schedule in his recovery from shoulder surgery and for his timetable to resume throwing, according to a source. The expectation is that Garoppolo will throw over the next few weeks, starting in early July per head coach Kyle Shanahan, and that plan remains in place. The 30-year-old had surgery in each March, but he's expected to be ready to take part in training camp, whether it's with the Niners or another team. He hasn't done any offseason workouts, but the 49ers are likely to get serious about trading him again once he resumes throwing. Although there have been whispers that second-year signal-caller Trey Lance might not be ready for the starting job, Jimmy G is still more likely to be traded than to remain with the team for the 2022 season.
San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Deebo Samuel was on hand for mandatory minicamp practice on Tuesday, but he wasn't in uniform and was running on a side field. Samuel requested a trade this offseason, but the 49ers remain adamant that they have no intentions of sending the star receiver packing. It's good to see the 26-year-old present at mandatory minicamp, but he and the team likely still aren't on great terms just yet. Samuel finished as the WR2 behind Cooper Kupp last year with 77 catches for 1,405 yards, a league-leading 18.2 yards per catch and six touchdowns, adding 59 carries for 365 yards and another eight TDs on the ground. His ceiling may fall if he's not used as a runner as much in 2022, but regardless, he's a strong WR1 target.
San Francisco 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan said that the team hasn't begun contract talks with defensive end Nick Bosa yet. However, Shanahan said that he expects Bosa to remain with the Niners for a long time. Bosa was at the team's facilities on Monday, which is a sign that he'll be present for the mandatory minicamp this week. The Pro Bowl pass-rusher didn't attend voluntary organized team activities, but it sounds like both sides aren't in a rush to get something done. The 24-year-old had a career-high 15.5 sacks last year, adding 52 tackles (40 solo), a league-leading 21 tackles for loss, 32 QB hits and four forced fumbles in 17 games. Bosa will again be one of the first defensive lineman off the board in IDP leagues.
San Francisco 49ers Pro Bowl pass-rusher Nick Bosa was at the team's facilities on Monday, which is a sign that he'll be at mandatory minicamp on Tuesday, according to a source. Bosa didn't attend the team's voluntary organized team activities and could be a contract-extension candidate. The 24-year-old's absence at OTA's was expected, and it wasn't any kind of holdout. He should once again be one of the first defensive ends off the board in IDP leagues. Bosa missed all but two games in the 2020 season due to injury, but he was a Pro Bowler in his other two NFL seasons and had a career-high 15.5 sacks last year, including 52 tackles (40 solo), a league-high 21 tackles for loss, 32 QB hits and four forced fumbles in 17 games.
