[Social Robotics] [default] As the 49ers prepare to add another defensive lineman

with a top-five pick Jalen Hurd San Francisco 49ers Jersey , they could be parting ways with the player who arrived via the third overall pick in 2017.Per a league source, the 49ers are shopping defensive lineman Solomon Thomas.The willingness to part ways with Thomas could be an indication that the 49ers are leaning toward taking pass rusher Nick Bosa. However, it doesn’t rule out Quinnen Williams, a defensive tackle who has the skill to move around.The 49ers have two other first-round defensive linemen: 2015 first-rounder Arik Armstead and 2016 first-rounder DeForest Buckner.Thomas has two years left on his rookie deal, plus an option year available in 2021. He’s due to earn $3 million this year and $4.33 million in 2020.After Thomas racked up three sacks in 14 games as a rookie Weston Richburg Jersey , defensive coordinator Robert Saleh vowed that Thomas has “got a plan” and will be “much improved” as a pass rusher. Thomas responded with one sack in 16 games, and he saw his playing time diminish. Last year was a huge disappointment for the 49ers and Jimmy Garoppolo, as he carried the biggest salary cap hit in the NFL but played in just three games before suffering a season-ending injury. The good news is, recovery from that injury is going well.Coach Kyle Shanahan said Garoppolo is slowly but surely rehabbing that torn ACL and appears on pace to be ready to go for the summer, and well before the start of the regular season.“It’s very controlled movements and stuff Kyle Juszczyk Jersey ,” Shanahan said, via NBC Sports Bay Area. “When he does all that it does look very good, which means he’s getting closer. And that’s why hopefully it will be full-go for training camp and I think we will get a lot of work with him in OTAs also.”Garoppolo and Shanahan aren’t allowed to work together on football activities at this time of year, but Garoppolo is allowed to use the 49ers’ facility for rehab, and Shanahan has caught some glimpses of that.“It’s a tease for us because we look out our windows and he’s doing drops and throwing great to the equipment managers and trainers Laken Tomlinson Jersey ,” Shanahan said.The 49ers hope Garoppolo is throwing great to their receivers this summer, this fall, and into the winter.
