The San Francisco 49ers quarterback battle likely isn’t going to be decided for some time. The 49ers did release Josh Rosen, clearing up the quarterback room a bit, but Trey Lance and Jimmy Garoppolo are still battling it out with a few weeks to go until the regular season starts.
Head coach Kyle Shanahan had an honest take on the situation, according to Myles Simmons of Pro Football Talk.
“They’re competing their ass off. They’re doing a good job…They both bring different elements to our team. Both of them, I believe, can play at a high level and I’m trying to see which one does that the best for us.”
The 49ers took Trey Lance with the third overall pick in the 2021 NFL Draft, spelling the end of Garoppolo’s reign at some point in San Francisco.
