SANTA CLARA–As expected Jimmy Garoppolo was the main attraction Wednesday afternoon at San Francisco 49ers practice, as media got their first look at the Patriot-turned-49er hit the field in red and gold for the first time.
All eyes were on the newest member of the team as he took practice reps. Garoppolo looked good in his first few minutes warming up with the wide receivers. There were a few times you could tell he wasn’t used to the flow of the practice, waiting and watching to see what the rest of the team did.
C.J. Beathard also looked to be helpful to his newest form of competition. When Garoppolo had questions about where which routes the receivers would be running, Beathard appeared to point them out.
There’s not a huge amount to be gleaned from ten minutes of practice video, but damnit if it isn’t fun to watch Kyle Shanahan’s shiny new toy for the first time wearing the uniform.
