This was always going to be the outcome, regardless of how the Niners' season ended.
The 49ers drafted former North Dakota State star Trey Lance for a reason. He got some good experience this past season and spent most of it learning from the sideline. That's an ideal outcome for the 49ers.
San Francisco is expected to trade Garoppolo this offseason. Early indicators say the team could get a first-round pick for the veteran quarterback.
