The San Francisco 49ers have officially canceled the remainder of the team’s offseason program, making Wednesday the last time players gather on the Santa Clara practice field until training camp at the end of July.

The 49ers initially planned to hold their three-day mandatory minicamp next week but moved it up to this week, canceling the third day of activities and having a family day for players, coaches, and staff instead.

Head coach Kyle Shanahan hinted that organized team activities might still take place next week. Although, it seemed unlikely, especially after dropping Thursday’s practice and media availability. Next week’s schedule has officially been cleared, which means 49ers players receive a little lengthier of a break before returning for the grind of training camp.

This week, while explaining why the minicamp was moved up in the schedule, Shanahan shared that he doesn’t believe so many offseason practices are necessary.

“I don’t think we’re going to need 12 [Phase 3 practices],” Shanahan said on Tuesday, “so I thought it made more sense to move the minicamp up, get everybody here. We’ll see how this week goes and see what we think we need at the end of the week.”

Apparently, Shanahan saw what he needed and feels the team put in enough work during the offseason program.

The San Francisco 49ers have changed the schedule of their mandatory minicamp, once planned for three days. The team has opted to cancel Thursday’s practice, which was supposed to be the third and final of the week. Tuesday and Wednesday ended up being the only practices of the week. The 49ers have also opted to cancel Thursday’s media availability, so there is unlikely to be anything of substance reported from the team’s Santa Clara facility for the rest of the week, barring any roster or contract moves. Thursday’s practice was initially scheduled for 10:50 a.m. It could be that head coach Kyle Shanahan determined that his players don’t need the extra practice. This week’s minicamp was originally scheduled for next week, and the team decided to move

Kyle Shanahan expects Jimmy Garoppolo to practice if 49ers don’t trade QB before training camp

The San Francisco 49ers will make every effort to trade Jimmy Garoppolo once the quarterback fully recovers from his offseason shoulder surgery and starts throwing again. Garoppolo was excused from this week’s mandatory minicamp as he continues his rehab away from the team. What if the 49ers can’t trade Garoppolo by training camp? Does head coach Kyle Shanahan expect the quarterback to join his teammates and practice? “Yes, I do,” Shanahan answered on Tuesday. The coach was asked if he would consider excusing the quarterback, as he did this week. After all, should Garoppolo be injured, his salary for 2022 becomes guaranteed, and the 49ers’ options dwindle. “I’ll think about that when that day comes,” Shanahan said. “But [if] Jimmy’s

49ers DE Nick Bosa is happy with his offseason but remains quiet about his contract status

San Francisco 49ers defensive end Nick Bosa didn’t have much to say Wednesday about where things stand with a possible contract extension, but he did tell reporters he’s been pleased with his offseason and is in better shape than last year after having to spend the early part of 2021 rehabbing from a torn ACL. Bosa reported to the 49ers’ mandatory minicamp this week after being away from the team throughout its voluntary offseason workout program and took some time to speak to reporters following Wednesday’s practice session. Bosa is eligible for his first contract extension this offseason, which is expected to make him one of the highest-paid defensive players in the NFL whenever it comes to fruition.
