The San Francisco 49ers put starting quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo on notice after they went all-in to land QB Trey Lance with the No. 3 overall pick in this year's draft. Ever since that draft selection, the rumors have swirled around when Lance will take over under center in San Francisco.

That hasn't stopped Graoppolo from taking Lance under his wing as the team heads into training camp. Honestly, part of Garoppolo's comfort may stem from his oozing confidence over remaining the top quarterback for the 49ers next season.

Jimmy Garoppolo Rumors

During a recent local radio interview, Garoppolo was asked to gauge his confidence in owning the No. 1 QB spot for Week 1. The reply? Something only worthy of Jimmy G. “Oh yeah, come on, you can count on that," proclaimed Garoppolo.

He heads into this summer of training camps and eventually next season with as much confidence as ever before. Rightfully so, the only real issue the 49ers' 5-year quarterback has faced is staying healthy and on the field. In his last full season in 2019, Garoppolo threw close to 4,000 yards including 27 touchdowns, a 13-3 overall record, and a Super Bowl appearance.

Sports bettors agree, as Garoppolo is the betting favorite to be the Week 1 starter, according to NFL odds on FanDuel Sportsbook.
