SANTA CLARA – With the opening of the training camp, 49ers quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo returned to hard football.
When he matures to his role as leader of the offensive, Garoppolo shares that he has spent much of his time in the offseason-talking shop with veteran cornerback and new teammate Richard Sherman, who is recognized as one of the brightest football heads in the organization is.
Sherman, a four-time Pro Bowl pick and three-time First-Team All-Pro During his seven seasons with the Seattle Seahawks, he confirmed that he had an open, productive and ongoing dialogue with Garoppolo.
"We talk a lot about it," Sherman said. "We talk about the strengths and weaknesses of certain defenses, passports he likes, people he likes to visit."
Garoppolo quickly became the face of the franchise when he signed a five-year, $ 1
Last week, Garoppolo was the whole buzz of the Internet when TMZ shot video of him dying with Kiara Mia – of pornographic filming – for an obvious date in Beverly Hills. It may not have been the most discrete attitude for someone who wanted to go unnoticed, but Garoppolo is still adapting to his new reality.
Although he only made seven career starts in four NFL seasons and went 5-0 last season Cardinal Garoppolo has made a name for himself with just a fraction of the offense of coach Kyle Shanahan and is now firmly established as a click bait ,
"Life is different right now," he replied on Wednesday when asked what he had learned from his well-respected dining experience.
"My life outside the field was never really big because I was very public with things, even social media, I'm not out there, but my life is different and I'm under a microscope, it's like Kyle said, it's a good learning experience, I just have to put up with it, that's what it is. "
The 49ers volunteered for training camp on Wednesday. The club will enter the training field for the first time on Thursday. The focus is again on football – mostly.
"I have never heard of these articles," joked Shanahan. "What are you talking about?"
Shanahan pointed out that Garoppolo, having spent 3 ½ seasons with the New England Patriots, had already won a handsome quarterback from a notable franchise
"I think everyone has an idea how to get along the headlight, "said Shanahan. "But not everyone is in this spotlight. Never in my life have I commented on a player's date in July, so I'm not going to start today because I think that's not really for us."
"But me I think that's a very good example. Even if you know, sometimes you have to learn how under the microscope we all are. It's not just the quarterback. They are all players. The quarterback will definitely be more than anyone else, but I think it's a good learning experience for him and he needs to know what's coming with that stuff. "
In reality, the only true learning is the Garoppolo and The team continues during an important training camp – its first as a member of the 49ers – Garoppolo arrived in a midseason trade with the Patriots last year, he never had time
Returning to Santa Clara for the offseason program, Garoppolo began his learning process from the beginning, becoming a movie star himself with the countless hours he spent watching relevant football films.
"The very situation in which I was last year was so difficult because you are preparing for a defense that you are learning week," he said, "but at the same time you are learning brand new calls, new words, all the stuff. So he combined all this into one that made it so difficult.
"Being able to start from scratch and learning why it's the way everything is related, how a game helps dictate the next game, it just makes more sense."
