Rapoport: I don’t get the sense the Browns are interested in 49ers QB Jimmy Garoppolo

Aug 16, 2022 at 9:43 AM--

We might quickly learn how much faith the Cleveland Browns have in quarterback Jacoby Brissett. Will they ride the 2022 season with the seventh-year quarterback, should the NFL force Deshaun Watson to sit out the season? Or will the Browns seek a different veteran quarterback?

San Francisco 49ers fans are hoping for the latter. They're hoping for a miracle. Maybe, somehow, the Niners can get something in return for Jimmy Garoppolo and not be forced to release the former starter.

The Browns might be the 49ers' last hope. San Francisco is waiting to see if any trade interest develops, but so far, there has been nothing to report. Teams just aren't interested in the 30-year-old quarterback.

NFL insider Ian Rapoport doesn't believe the Browns are too interested, either. That might be regardless of the outcome for Watson.

"To answer your question about Jimmy G and the Browns, I've seen some reports," Rapoport said on the Pat McAfee Show. "I just don't get the sense that the Browns are that interested. I just don't. I mean, they signed Jacoby Brissett for a reason. If they trade for Jimmy G, it's twenty-plus more million dollars.

"Not that money is the biggest concern, but I checked with everyone. Maybe something will surprise me. I just do not get the sense that there's that much interest in him."

On Monday, head coach Kyle Shanahan said nothing has changed with the Garoppolo situation. Unfortunately, for the 49ers, that means the waiting continues.

Rapoport: 49ers remain 'firmly committed' to Trey Lance; QB facing 4-6 months of recovery

Last week, there was some speculation that Trey Lance could be fully recovered before the end of this season. Foot and ankle surgeon Dr. Kenneth Jung, a consultant to the Los Angeles Rams, told the San Francisco Chronicle that the second-year quarterback's ankle could be fully healed within 10 to 12 weeks. Head coach Kyle Shanahan recently squashed that chatter by stating that Lance will be out until next season. However, the team expects Lance to fully recover after undergoing surgery this past Monday to repair the damage caused by the broken ankle sustained in Week

49ers-Bears: Please Don't Blame it on the Rain

The Chicago Bears defeated the San Francisco 49ers on Sunday, September 11, 2022. The 49ers had been favored by six and a half points on the road, and Mother Nature favored the Bears. Let's say it rained precisely when it was supposed to, but that's not why the 49ers let the game slip away. The San Francisco defense was supposed to be the most vital link going into the season. The team chose Trey Lance as the starting quarterback and found a way to retain Jimmy Garoppolo as a backup quarterback. The 49ers replenished the defense with talented depth, but at a point in the game, the defense somehow became the weakest link. San Francisco's defense started the game on fire, forcing a turnover—an interception by Talanoa Hufanga—and five punts to end the

The Dallas Cowboys will be without their starting quarterback, Dak Prescott, for six to eight weeks. He suffered an injury to his throwing hand against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Sunday night and underwent surgery on Monday. Cooper Rush is the next quarterback up in Dallas. "Obviously, it's early on a Monday. Certainly, we'll be evaluating all options," said Stephen Jones, VP of the Cowboys and son of owner Jerry Jones during a radio interview before expressing confidence in Cooper. The 49ers have a quarterback they tried all offseason to trade. So would they be willing to send Jimmy Garoppolo to

Cowboys seemingly end speculation of potential interest in 49ers QB Jimmy Garoppolo

It doesn't sound like the Dallas Cowboys will be interested in any quarterback outside those currently on their roster. On Monday, Dak Prescott underwent surgery on his hand after suffering an injury during Sunday night's loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. He is expected to be sidelined for six to eight weeks, leading to speculation that the Cowboys might emerge as a potential trade candidate for San Francisco 49ers quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo. On Monday, 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan was asked about the possibility ... because that's going to happen any time an NFL quarterback gets injured this season. "Just like all players, we'll listen to anybody on
