The 49ers keep saying Jimmy Garoppolo is basically not a member of the team anymore. However, technically he's still on the roster, which also means he then technically has to be included on the team's official depth chart. 

The San Francisco 49ers released their unofficial preseason depth chart on Tuesday. Sure enough, Jimmy Garoppolo is on there. 

Garoppolo is listed as a fourth-string quarterback behind Trey Lance, Nate Sudfeld and Brock Purdy. 

The 49ers have no other choice than to include Jimmy Garoppolo on the depth chart. If he's still a roster player, he has to be included, regardless of what the Niners are planning to do with him. 

“If he’s on the depth chart, it’s because he has to be,” Shanahan said of Garoppolo.

Until Garoppolo is either cut or traded, he'll be listed on the team's depth chart. Awkward, right?
