49ers have no plans to trade Jimmy Garoppolo right now, but multiple teams expected to inquire

Apr 29, 2021 at 5:53 AM--


A report surfaced yesterday stating that the New England Patriots were preparing a new contract for Jimmy Garoppolo — just in case the San Francisco 49ers decided to trade the veteran quarterback. Another report stated that the expectation around the league is that the Niners would try to move Garoppolo before or during the draft, which kicks off tonight.

NFL Network's Tom Pelissero says that there are currently no plans to trade Garoppolo. However, he adds that multiple teams are expected to reach out to San Francisco today to inquire about the quarterback.

"My understanding is, you can anticipate multiple teams to be checking in with the 49ers today about a potential trade for Garoppolo," Pelissero said on Good Morning Football. "One logical team that has been connected to this for a while now, of course: Garoppolo's original team, the New England Patriots. But the wheels are not in motion on anything just yet."


NFL insider Ian Rapoport adds that there are no plans to trade Garoppolo unless one of those inquiring teams blows them away with an offer. San Francisco has repeatedly stated that Garoppolo remains in its plans for the upcoming season and that it would take a first-round pick for those plans to change.

"Seems pretty unlikely, but crazier things have happened," added Rapoport.


"You have one big complicating factor here: Garoppolo has a no-trade clause in his contract that just kicked in last month," Pelissero continued. "So, in essence, Garoppolo could scuttle any deal by not agreeing to a restructured contract on the one that is currently due to pay him $25.5 million in 2021."

ESPN's Adam Schefter also reported that multiple teams are expected to contact the Niners today about Garoppolo, but the chances of a trade occurring are "remote," as of this morning. As with all things in the NFL, the situation could change over the next three days.


The 49ers are expected to select Garoppolo's eventual replacement with the No. 3 overall pick. That could be Mac Jones of Alabama, Trey Lance of North Dakota State, or even Justin Fields of Ohio State. Right now, the plan is to have the rookie quarterback sit and learn behind Garoppolo during the 2021 season.

The Atlanta Falcons were really trying to move Julio Jones' salary. Eventually, they were able to strike a deal with the Tennessee Titans for the veteran receiver. That was after trying to gauge interest with several others. Albert Breer of Sports Illustrated reports that the Falcons reached out to all four NFC West teams, which, of course, includes the San Francisco 49ers (h/t to Josh Schrock of NBC Sports).

Jimmy Garoppolo is trying to fend off anyone from overtaking him on the depth chart — specifically, the No. 3 overall pick, Trey Lance. It sounds like he put in a solid effort during organized team activities, which ended today. The veteran quarterback will look to continue impressing his coaches in training camp at the end of July. Garoppolo is slated to be the San Francisco 49ers' starting quarterback when the team kicks off against the Detroit Lions at Ford Field on September 12. Head coach Kyle Shanahan spoke with reporters today and expressed how pleased he is with Garoppolo's performance during the offseason program. "I think Jimmy had his best spring



49ers' George Kittle says Jimmy Garoppolo 'has a fire lit under him,' good dynamic with Trey Lance

San Francisco 49ers tight end George Kittle was a guest today on Good Morning Football and discussed several topics of interest. Among those topics was the dynamic between the team's starting quarterback, Jimmy Garoppolo, and the rookie drafted at No. 3 overall to eventually succeed him, Trey Lance. One would think that could create an awkward situation in the quarterback room and possibly the locker room. That hasn't been the case for the 49ers, though. Garoppolo has been welcoming to the young quarterback and willing to serve as his mentor while preparing for the 2021 season. "I know there was a story that came out that Jimmy Garoppolo was one of the first guys to text Trey Lance," Kittle said. "That's just the type of guy that Jimmy is. He's not going



Louis Riddick sees Jimmy Garoppolo holding onto 49ers' starting job and competing for a Super Bowl -- if he stays healthy

During ESPN's First Take, Louis Riddick weighed in on the quarterback situation for the San Francisco 49ers. He fully expects Jimmy Garoppolo to start Week 1 against the Detroit Lions, remain the starter, and play well throughout the 2021 season ... with one caveat. The veteran quarterback must do something he hasn't been able to do throughout his career — stay healthy. Injuries sidelined Garoppolo for 23 games over the last three seasons. He missed 10 games last season. The quarterback has only once made it out of September injury-free during a season in which he started. That was the 2019 campaign that saw Garoppolo coming off an ACL injury from the previous year. If Garoppolo can remain in the lineup, Riddick feels that he will respond well to
