Jimmy Garoppolo has a no-trade clause for 2021 in his 49ers contract

Nov 18, 2020 at 11:47 AM--


Maybe Jimmy Garoppolo will be the San Francisco 49ers quarterback next season. Head coach Kyle Shanahan said on Tuesday that he expects that to be the case.

"I expect Jimmy to be our starter next year," Shanahan told reporters. "I mean, I expect him to come play with us this year (after he recovers from his ankle injury). We have six games left. We are not out of the playoffs yet. I've been on a team that was 3-6 going into a bye week that ended up winning their division.

"I think we have guys on this team capable of finishing this the right way. We've got to do it one game at a time, and I hope Jimmy can come back and be a part of that. But to think that we've made any decisions on anybody going into the future isn't the case."

There is another factor to consider. Albert Breer of Sports Illustrated reports that the 49ers can't trade Garoppolo without his permission until March of 2022. That's because the quarterback has a no-trade clause in his contract for the 2021 league year.

Of course, that doesn't necessarily mean San Francisco won't trade Garoppolo before or during next season. The quarterback would need to approve any move, though. The team could also release the quarterback outright without much of a salary-cap impact, should it choose to move in another direction.

Garoppolo is scheduled to earn base salaries totaling $48.3 million over the next two seasons and count around $27 million against the salary cap each year. After this season, the quarterback has two years remaining on the five-year, $137.5 million deal he signed in 2018.

First off, it's worth noting that Bleacher Report's Chris Roling lists Indianapolis Colts cornerback Xavier Rhodes among the crop of 2021 free agents most likely to be overpaid next offseason. How could that be relevant to San Francisco 49ers fans? Roling lists the Niners as potential suitors. It is worth noting that this is likely based purely on speculation and not any insider knowledge surrounding the team's thinking. Still, San Francisco doesn't have a cornerback signed beyond this season. Not one. So, expect San Francisco to be linked to several defensive backs during the upcoming offseason, including its own.
