  • Browns Will Consider Trading For Jimmy Garoppolo

    The Cleveland Browns could look to trade for San Francisco 49ers quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo if Deshaun Watson's six-game suspension is to be increased after the NFL appealed the initial ruling. The 30-year-old is on the trade block after the 49ers handed the keys to their 2021 third overall pick Trey Lance, but there hasn't been a ton of interest in the veteran. With Jacoby Brissett currently in line to start in Watson's absence, Garoppolo would be an upgrade for the Cleveland offense, which in itself is a good reason to consider a trade. After posting 3,810 passing yards and 20 touchdowns in 2021, Garoppolo can be valued as a QB2 option with a limited ceiling for fantasy managers if he is to be acquired by Cleveland.

    Jimmy Garoppolo continues to practice on the sideline as the 49ers front office continues to seek a trade for the veteran QB. However, assuming a trade doesn’t materialize, the 49ers may be willing to wait until the last second to move on from their former starter. Per Matt Maiocco of NBC Sports Bay Area, the […]

  • Jimmy Garoppolo Unlikely To Be Traded Soon

    San Francisco 49ers quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo has been on the trade block all offseason long. Despite that, there doesn't appear to be a clear trade partner for the veteran quarterback. At this point, it sounds like the team is fine with waiting until cutdown day to make a final decision on Garoppolo. There isn't much of a market for Garoppolo, so the team is waiting to see if another quarterback suffers an injury in camp. It's also worth noting that Garoppolo is working his way back from injury, so that could be part of the reason his trade market is slow. Regardless, fantasy managers shouldn't expect this situation to be resolved anytime soon.

  • Jimmy Garoppolo Practicing Without Restrictions

    San Francisco 49ers quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo (shoulder) has been cleared to practice in training camp without restrictions after undergoing offseason shoulder surgery that has prevented him from being traded. Because the Niners still plan to trade him, they are having him work out separately from the team during camp. "Jimmy's doing a really good job," general manager John Lynch said. "Kind of building his stamina in the throwing program that was prescribed all along and working out really strongly and aggressively, but yeah that situation is kind of where we've described it before." As of now, nothing seems imminent for Jimmy G as far as a trade, and it might not happen until deeper into training camp.

  • Jimmy Garoppolo Could Be Cut By 49ers

    The San Francisco 49ers are hoping that a trade opportunity materializes for quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo (shoulder) now that they are officially all-in on Trey Lance in 2022 and beyond. If the team can't trade Garoppolo, they will absolutely cut him before Week 1, when his $24.2 million salary would become fully guaranteed as termination pay under the Collective Bargaining Agreement. As a result, the 49ers will keep him out of practice and preseason games to ensure he won't get injured. The Houston Texans and Seattle Seahawks make the most sense for Jimmy G, but they may not be motivated to trade for him unless they suffer an injury at the position. The 30-year-old avoided the Physically Unable to Perform list to open training camp, but it remains to be seen if he'll be starting for another team in 2022 come Week 1.

  • Jimmy Garoppolo Avoids PUP List

    After taking his physical on Tuesday at training camp, San Francisco 49ers quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo (shoulder) wasn't placed on the Physically Unable to Perform list. Although Garoppolo isn't expected to get back on a practice field until mid-August after having offseason shoulder surgery, it's good news for his availability for the start of the regular season, which will almost certainly be with another organization. The Niners also publicly admitted on Tuesday that they've officially moved on from Jimmy G to Trey Lance at the position. The Seattle Seahawks and Houston Texans make the most sense for the 30-year-old signal-caller, but there's no guarantee he'd be starting right away in either scenario.

  • 49ers Have Moved On From Jimmy Garoppolo

    San Francisco 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan said he, general manager John Lynch and quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo (shoulder) spoke on Tuesday morning, and everyone is on the same page: "We have moved on to Trey Lance." The Niners had been leaning this way since last season ended, but things have been complicated by the fact that Garoppolo remains on the roster after having offseason shoulder surgery on his right arm. The 30-year-old is expected to return to the field by mid-August, but there's a good chance he'll be with another organization by then. The Seattle Seahawks and Houston Texans are the most likely landing spots for Jimmy G, but it remains to be seen if he'll be healthy enough to start somewhere else by Week 1 of the regular season.

  • Browns Not Expected To Pursue Jimmy Garoppolo

    The Cleveland Browns are still not expected to pursue a trade for San Francisco 49ers quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo (shoulder), even with the uncertainty surrounding a potential suspension of Deshaun Watson. The Browns never seriously considered Garoppolo, even before Watson hit the trade market in March. If Watson is suspended to open the year, Cleveland is expected to pursue another veteran signal-caller to give them insurance behind Jacoby Brissett, but it's unlikely to be Garoppolo, who is still recovering from offseason right shoulder surgery. The 30-year-old is hoping to return to the field in mid-August, at which point a trade is likely, possibly to the Seattle Seahawks or Houston Texans.

  • Jimmy Garoppolo Officially Given Permission To Seek Trade

    The San Francisco 49ers officially gave quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo's (shoulder) agents Don Yee and Carter Chow permission to seek a trade on Wednesday, according to sources. Garoppolo has been cleared to start practicing, but the Niners are expected to exercise caution with him this summer at training camp. The 30-year-old had offseason shoulder surgery on his right arm, but he's been throwing for weeks and is hoping to get back on the field by mid-August. San Francisco had planned to trade Jimmy G all along as they transition to Trey Lance as the starter in 2022. The Seattle Seahawks, Cleveland Browns and Houston Texans are the most likely destinations for Garoppolo, with both Seattle and Cleveland being intriguing options.

  • Jimmy Garoppolo Hopeful To Be Cleared By Mid-August

    San Francisco 49ers quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo (shoulder) has been one of the hottest names on the trade market this summer. The veteran quarterback continues working his way back from a shoulder injury. The 30-year-old has been throwing for weeks and his arm is reportedly stronger than before. Although, his days in San Francisco are likely numbered, but he'll need to get healthy before a trade happens. The hope is that Garoppolo will be cleared by mid-August. That being said, the trade market for Garoppolo could heat up once he begins during more workouts. The Seattle Seahawks and Houston Texans have been named as potential suitors for Garoppolo. The Seahawks roster does have talent, so he could have some fantasy value there. The first step is getting Garoppolo healthy and back on the field.

  • Will Giants Make A Move For Jimmy Garoppolo?

    San Francisco 49ers quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo is still with the franchise after months of trade speculation. While many clubs have entered the conversation regarding a potential deal, nothing has happened. However, NFL Network's David Carr believes the Giants may make a move to acquire his services. New York would certainly benefit from Garoppolo's experience and leadership, especially as it relates to the development of Daniel Jones. He could also start if things go south for Jones, which is possible based on his years of subpar production. Nonetheless, although other teams may get involved leading up to training camp, nobody may look to bring the veteran in unless he demonstrates his shoulder is 100%, including the Browns, an organization also reportedly looking to add him to its roster.

  • Jimmy Garoppolo Has Been Throwing For 2-3 Weeks

    San Francisco 49ers quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo (shoulder) resumed throwing two to three weeks ago, according to a source with knowledge of the situation. Dr. Neal ElAttrache, who performed Garoppolo's surgery, has been working in conjunction with the 49ers while Garoppolo has been rehabbing in LA. He's expected to make a full recovery. Jimmy G could still be traded before the 2022 season, but the Seattle Seahawks and Houston Texans seem like long shots. The Cleveland Browns could be an option with a potential season-long suspension looming for Deshaun Watson. We'll have a better read on the 30-year-old's progress from shoulder surgery in training camp, but if he remains with San Fran into the start of the regular season, Garoppolo could be on the bench behind Trey Lance.

  • Seahawks Could Trade For Jimmy Garoppolo

    San Francisco 49ers quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo could still be on the move before the season begins. The Seattle Seahawks have reportedly discussed the possibility of trading for the veteran signal caller. At this point, the Seahawks might be out of options with Baker Mayfield getting traded to the Carolina Panthers. Now, the Seahawks are stuck with Drew Lock and Geno Smith, assuming they don't acquire another quarterback. It would be a little odd to see the 49ers trade Garoppolo to a team within their own division. Although, it could be possible, assuming the two sides can agree on a way to split up the salary. The addition of Garoppolo would boost the fantasy value of Tyler Lockett and DK Metcalf.

  • Jimmy Garoppolo Progressing Well In Shoulder Rehab

    San Francisco 49ers quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo (shoulder) is "progressing well and on schedule" in his rehab following his offseason shoulder surgery. Garoppolo's agent, Don Yee, is optimistic about the upcoming season, despite his client's uncertain future with his current team. With Trey Lance seemingly taking over as the starter, Garoppolo is expected to be traded by the end of July, according to Tom Pelissero. With Baker Mayfield now a member of the Carolina Panthers, the market for the 30-year-old signal-caller seems to be diminishing. Yee shut down rumors of a potential reunion with Tom Brady in Tampa Bay, so Garoppolo's team for the 2022 campaign remains to be seen. Given his uncertainty as a starter, fantasy managers can leave Jimmy G on the waiver wire.

  • Jimmy Garoppolo To Tampa Not Happening

    San Francisco 49ers quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo remains with the team after months of trade rumblings. The veteran has been linked to possible deals with several clubs throughout the offseason. Interestingly, the Buccaneers are the latest team rumored to be looking to acquire Garoppolo, with the signal-calling then expected to serve as Tom Brady's backup, a relationship the duo is quite familiar with from their time in New England. However, when Rick Stroud of the Tampa Bay Times was asked about a potential reunion, he responded emphatically, "not a chance." Nonetheless, with a lack of suitors, there appears to be a shot Garoppolo could remain in the Bay Area in 2022-23. Trey Lance is still expected to start. However, if the sophomore gets sidelined for whatever reason, Garoppolo may be back under center. Yet, he's not worth adding to any fantasy roster anytime soon.

  • Jimmy Garoppolo Remains On Schedule In His Recovery

    San Francisco 49ers quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo (shoulder) remains on schedule in his recovery from shoulder surgery and for his timetable to resume throwing, according to a source. The expectation is that Garoppolo will throw over the next few weeks, starting in early July per head coach Kyle Shanahan, and that plan remains in place. The 30-year-old had surgery in each March, but he's expected to be ready to take part in training camp, whether it's with the Niners or another team. He hasn't done any offseason workouts, but the 49ers are likely to get serious about trading him again once he resumes throwing. Although there have been whispers that second-year signal-caller Trey Lance might not be ready for the starting job, Jimmy G is still more likely to be traded than to remain with the team for the 2022 season.

    The San Francisco 49ers have excused quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo (shoulder) from their mandatory minicamp this week, according to sources. Garoppolo continues to rehab from right shoulder surgery away from the team's facilities as they explore trade options. The 30-year-old is expected to resume throwing this month, at which point interested teams might become a bit more serious about trading for the veteran signal-caller. There have been conflicting reports about whether the Niners think second-year quarterback Trey Lance is ready to take over starting duties in 2022, so we could have a bit of a QB controversy in San Francisco if Jimmy G sticks around. Still, the expectation is that Garoppolo will be playing for a new team by the start of the regular season.

    San Francisco 49ers quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo (shoulder) remains on the roster. It's been continuously reported that the veteran would be on the move. Yet, after having surgery on his throwing shoulder, interest from other clubs fizzled. There have also been rumblings regarding Trey Lance's lack of progress, which seemed to keep the door open for Garoppolo to be the team's starter this season. However, according to new quarterbacks coach Brian Griese, Garoppolo hasn't had any contact with him. Nonetheless, there's still a chance Garoppolo stays in the Bay Area for the 2022-23 campaign. But considering he's coming off surgery and hasn't spoken with Griese, it appears Lance is the current favorite to be under center moving ahead.

  • George Kittle: Toss-Up Between Trey Lance, Jimmy Garoppolo

    San Francisco 49ers tight end George Kittle said it's a toss-up for him when it comes to who he prefers as the starting quarterback in 2022 between second-year signal-caller Trey Lance and veteran Jimmy Garoppolo. "That's the million-dollar question, isn't it?" Kittle said. "That's one reason I'm glad I'm not the head coach of the 49ers. That's all on coach Shanahan. I'll give you both ways. Jimmy G, awesome in the huddle, great leader, directs guys. People go to attention when he's talking. He's got a quick release, he knows the offense. Like I said, been to two NFC Championship games, knows what he's doing. Trey Lance can run, extend plays, does all the play-action stuff incredible, could throw the ball 70 yards. I don't know. It's a toss-up for me." Garoppolo's recovery from offseason surgery will go a long way in deciding whether he's traded before training camp this summer.
