NFL fines 49ers quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo $7,017

Jan 6, 2020 at 1:27 PM--

There was one pass by Jimmy Garoppolo during the San Francisco 49ers' Week 17 victory against the Seattle Seahawks that proved to be costly. Although, it's probably not too much of a concern for a quarterback making over $18 million this season.

The NFL has fined Garoppolo $7,017 for throwing a football into the CenturyLink Field seats after the game, according to Mike Garafolo of NFL Network via Matt Maiocco of NBC Sports Bay Area.

The football was the same one Garoppolo had in his hands in the closing seconds of the final NFL matchup of the decade, and a game that determined the winner of the NFC West. It landed in the arms of 19-year-old 49ers fan Matt Pinelli, who hopes to get the football signed at a later date.

Garoppolo thought he got away with his action.

"I looked for the ref initially, but no one was around me," Garoppolo told Maiocco. "So I was like ... I'm just going to throw this thing."

Garoppolo completed 18-of-22 pass attempts for 285 yards and a passer rating of 118.8 against the Seahawks. His 81.8 completion percentage tied for his highest as a starter (81.8 percent in Week 8 vs. Carolina).

Analyst and former All-Pro O-lineman: "Jimmy Garoppolo is just an injury-prone quarterback"

Mike Silver of the San Francisco Chronicle took a stab at defending Kyle Shanahan and his play calling from fans and media who place at least part of the blame for the San Francisco 49ers' quarterback injuries on the shoulders of the head coach. It's a fascinating read. Silver argues that the quarterback woes have more to do with poor luck than Shanahan unnecessarily putting his signal-callers in harm's way. Whether or not you want to accept Silver's stand on the situation is up to you. The topic has created much debate among the fanbase, but it is a discussion for another day. One thing was made clear this week. Jimmy Garoppolo, the

49ers' Jimmy Garoppolo says Super Bowl return 'still up in the air'

The San Francisco 49ers have officially ruled out quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo for this weekend's NFC Championship Game against the Philadelphia Eagles. That wasn't unexpected. The chances of the former starter suiting up for Sunday's playoff bout, backing up rookie Brock Purdy, were slim. "Yeah, it's just been an outside chance the whole time, and that was still an outside chance," head coach Kyle Shanahan said Thursday, before that outside chance turned into no chance. The 49ers never placed Garoppolo on injured reserve, leaving the door open for a playoff return. However, we are now down to just one more game as a possibility—Super

Jets will look closely at 49ers' Jimmy Garoppolo in free agency

The New York Jets will likely be looking to upgrade the quarterback position by bringing in a veteran after seemingly misfiring with Zach Wilson. Internally, one of the options being thrown around is San Francisco 49ers quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo. Of course, he isn't the only option in what should be an intriguing offseason of potential quarterback moves. "According to sources, the Jets will be looking closely at [Aaron] Rodgers, Jimmy Garoppoloand Derek Carr," wrote Jonathan Jones of CBS Sports. "They won't limit their search to just those three quarterbacks -- and sources stress it's still early in the process --

Kyle Shanahan doesn't see Jimmy Garoppolo returning to 49ers, isn't looking to add a veteran starting QB

It remains to be seen how things will play out at the quarterback position for the San Francisco 49ers in 2023, but one thing the team doesn't appear to be interested in is adding another front line veteran to the picture who is capable of excelling as a starter if things didn't work out with Brock Purdy or Trey Lance. That includes Jimmy Garoppolo, whose time with the 49ers appears to have come to an end. 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan addressed the quarterback situation during his year-end press conference Wednesday, which included questions about what kind of quarterback the team might look to add in the weeks ahead. Speculation swirled recently over the possibility of the 49ers being interested in Tom Brady before he announced his retirement earlier on
