Jimmy Garopolo survived until Sunday. . . and he remains on the 49ers list.
Other players on the team are also alive.
Kyle Shanahan knows for sure, as a group of them called the 49ers coach to inform him, NFL Media’s Mike Garafolo. It is not known if Garopolo was one of them.
Shanahan, of course, tried to answer the question of whether Garopolo would have a place on the roster after the draft. The 49ers used the third overall pick for North Dakota quarterback, Trey Lance, Garoppolo’s successor.
Shanahan later admitted that he “totally bombarded” his answer.
“I can’t guarantee that anyone in the world will be alive on Sunday, so I can’t guarantee who will be on our list on Sunday. So, that applies to all of us, “Shanahan said on Monday.
His sweet response provoked a lively response from many of his players, and Shanahan will soon not experience it – as predicted in the game.
