Albert Breer expects Jimmy Garoppolo trade talks to heat up soon

“We want to take a look at Sam Darnold in attacking Ben McAdoo. We want to take a look at Matt Corral, how he comes out of a simplistic college offense, and then we’ll reassess after we finish the offseason program,” Breer said describing the Panthers’ mindset. “That’s why I’m saying in about a week and a half, Carolina, Seattle, those teams, I think, will probably have a better overall sense of their quarterback position. And that’s when I think those talks are resuming… whether it’s San Francisco and Carolina, Cleveland and Carolina, Seattle and San Francisco – whatever it is… I think some of those discussions will resume at the end of next week.

“Ebukam and Jackson could find themselves competing for snaps this season. Ebukam says Jackson is already offering him stiff competition, which should make both players better in the long run.

“I saw him perform all the exercises, and I was like, ‘Man, he’s athletic, he’s tall,'” Ebukam said. “He has young legs, so he’s able to keep going all day. Me seeing him do that, I’m just like, oh yeah, I got someone who can push me. So he pushes me. He will also push others.

Cohn: The good and the bad of day 2 of the Minicamp

“[Trey Lance] had 10 of 15 pass attempts while playing without Deebo Samuel, Brandon Aiyuk, George Kittle, Jauan Jennings, Elijah Mitchell, Trent Williams, Daniel Brunskill and Mike McGlinchey. Also threw two long touchdown passes – one down the left sideline to Ray Ray McCloud who beat Ambry Thomas (more on him in a minute). The pass wobbled, but it was accurate and the receiver caught it, so who cares? Jimmy Garoppolo would never have even attempted this throw, let alone succeeded. The second deep touchdown pass was a perfect spiral through midfield for Jordan Matthews who headed a post. It was another pass that Garoppolo wouldn’t have completed in a million years. But the interception was definitely one Garoppolo would have thrown. On that play, Lance was under pressure, he forced a pass down the middle to KeeSean Johnson, and safety Leon O’Neal Jr. simply beat the receiver to the catch point. If Deebo Samuel or Brandon Aiyuk had been the target, the pass might have been completed, but they didn’t practice. In four media drives this offseason, Lance completed 50 of 67 passes (74.6%) and threw 6 touchdown passes and 2 picks. He is ready. The 49ers don’t need Garoppolo anymore. They should cut it before training camp.
