SANTA CLARA — The 49ers will not begin talks to negotiate a contract extension with impending free agent quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo until after the season. Head coach Kyle Shanahan made this clear Monday at his press conference.
Since the 49ers traded for Garoppolo on Oct. 30, he has appeared in three games, passed for 645 yards, thrown two touchdown passes and two interceptions, completed 66.7 percent of his pass attempts and posted a quarterback rating of 92.7. His win-loss record as a starter with the 49ers is 2-0.
The 49ers had lost 29 of their previous 37 games before Garoppolo took over the quarterback job.
Shanahan said Garoppolo’s strong start has no bearing on the team’s approach to negotiating a contract with the quarterback and his agent.
