6:54 pm
what's happening tonight in sports 49ers fans. the wait is over training camp opened today in santa clara, with one issue clearly decided. you know what day it is to wait super excited to be back? super excited, right ? especially you guys shout out to the immediate t. trey lance, last year's rookie who the 49ers traded three first round draft picks to acquire is officially the team's starting quarterback
6:55 pm
. the 49ers trickled into the facility today and tomorrow will be on the field for the first time. their first preseason game is august 12th with the regular season beginning september 11th in chicago. i understand right now. the breast general manager john lynch in head coach kyle shanahan met with the media today. unlike last season, there will be no discussions about the identity of the starting quarterback. jimmy garoppolo is still on the roster and reported to camp but he'll be throwing on the side until the 49ers can find a trading partner for the first time today, management made it clear the baton has been passed. for this is trace team and that's nothing against jimmy. we made that decision a year ago, and we're going with that, and we're not going to mess around with that anymore. um and i don't think we really have messed around with that much. but once we made that decision we did, and jimmy understands that fully. he's a big guy, and it's nothing against him either. that's a business decision. and, um, that's what makes it not awkward. jimmy knows we're going
6:56 pm
with trade trade knows are going with trained. our team does so. that's and everyone likes both the guys. the other main off season drama surrounding the 49ers was the period before the draft when samuel has to be traded. 49ers did not trade samuel and he did report to camp today. on time. garoppolo salary is off the books. it stands to reason that a contract extension for samuel along with one for nick bosa is high on the priority list. no deadlines. and then there's not a hard deadline . but deadlines, you know, have a way of spurring these things into action. you know, i don't want to get everyone all excited that sometimes imminent because we're not there yet, but you know, really hopeful that in the near future will be able to announced something that's exciting for everyone involved. and so, um, that's good. dubose here today. um and we're excited about moving forward with them as part of this team, and the 49ers weren't the only bay area franchise making news today. as expected, the san jose sharks
6:57 pm
have hired former new york rangers coach david quinn to take over their head coaching position. new gm mike greer introduced quinn today and obvious testament to the wholesale change by the sharks at the top of the team's hierarchy. quinn coached the rangers for three seasons, and he's a former coach of the u. s olympic team. he's anticipating good things in san jose, the enthusiasm and the passion of our fan base. we certainly going to put together a team that you'll be proud of one that you want to watch. and, uh, i can't wait to get going because this is like i said, mike has done some good things here in the first few weeks were very optimistic about the team. we're going to have this coming season and i can't wait to get going. and check this out time on a tuesday night we've seen many looks from green bay packers quarterback aaron rodgers through the years. rogers reported to camp today. here's his current. look, if you're asking, hm, is that remind you of well. how about nicholas cage ? wow o connor! wow nineties
