Jimmy Garoppolo isn’t worrying about what will happen in 2022

NFL: NOV 28 Vikings at 49ers

Quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo‘s future with the 49ers has been a topic of conversation since the team drafted Trey Lance with the third overall pick earlier this year and it came up again before Sunday’s game against the Vikings.

Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reported that, barring a Super Bowl run, the 49ers still plan to trade Garoppolo after the season and hand the offense over to Lance. After the 34-26 49ers win was in the books, Garoppolo was asked if he’d seen the report.

“No I didn’t,” Garoppolo said, via NBCSportsBayArea.com. “I was worried about the game. I appreciate the heads up.”

Garoppolo went 17-of-26 for 230 yards, a touchdown, and an interception in the 49ers’ fourth win in their last five games. He’s been sharp throughout that run and continued good play should set up a win-win for the 49ers and Garoppolo however things wind up playing out this offseason.

  1. Trade The G man with Denver for Teddy Bear, who would make a great backup to the young Sir Lance a lot

  2. What’s the market going to be for a QB who’s all but had the ball taken out of his hands by his own coach for the last 3 years, and who prompted the team to trade three first round picks and more for a complete project who doesn’t look close to NFL-ready? I don’t see why anybody would give them more than a 3rd rounder for Jimmy G and that would probably have to be with the Niners paying about $15 mil of his salary next year, and shedding his salary is the reason they have to move him in the first place. It also seems like the Niners are publicly toying with the idea of bringing him back to distract from the fact that Lance looks like a colossal bust…

  3. Well said corn. Seems clear they never wanted Lance in the first place and he looks like an absolute project. Funny when he comes in for a play or two the tv guys tout him as some great runner when he is obviously just ‘okay’ at running.

  4. Niners would happily take a 3rd or 4th rd pick for Jimmy G. It should be pointed out that Jimmy has been all class and a total team player. That alone would be attractive to any team with a solid run game. He could plug right in with the Brownies

  5. Lance almost beat AZ but yeah you can call him a bust of you want. We will only know when he gets some time under his belt. The O is built around the running game and 10-20 passes a game. Jimmy is average at best 2/1 or 1/1 a game, Lance can’t be any worse and he is much cheaper so we can spend 27m somewhere else.
