Could the 49ers keep Jimmy Garoppolo for another season?


There are more rumors that the San Francisco 49ers could realistically keep veteran quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo as a starter for one more year so that 2021 rookie Trey Lance can continue to grow and develop as a starter. substitute.

ESPN’s Adam Schefter mentioned the possibility ahead of the NFL Scouting Combine, and ESPN’s Football Outsiders noted for an article published March 4 that a 49ers team ready to “win more now” might trust Garoppolo more than to Lance even as the 30-year-old recovers from surgery he needed earlier this month to repair a torn capsule in his shoulder.

As of Friday, the Cleveland Browns, Indianapolis Colts, Atlanta Falcons and New Orleans Saints have all seemingly pulled out of any Garoppolo contests. The Athletic’s Jeff Howe wrote on Monday that the 49ers may continue to evaluate Lance at least until Garoppolo is cleared to throw drills in June or July, and NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport explained during an appearance on Tuesday. on “The Pat McAfee Show” why he thinks Garoppolo might ultimately stay with his current employer through the fall months.

According to 49ers WebZone’s David Bonilla, Rapoport denied a rumor that 49ers general manager John Lynch told teams he had been offered two second-round draft picks for Garoppolo. Rapoport added that he doesn’t think such a proposal could come from the Seattle Seahawks or the Carolina Panthers.
