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.

49ers-Broncos: Jimmy Garoppolo still looking to get in game shape, get on same page with offensive teammates

By Kirk Larrabee

Last week, following a 27-7 win over the Seattle Seahawks, quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo said that being under center for the 49ers offense after missing the offseason and preseason was "like riding a bike." On Sunday, during a mistake-filled 11-10 loss to the Denver Broncos that saw the offense commit three turnovers and a safety while converting just one of ten third downs, that bike at times looked like it had two flat tires. In his first start since stepping back into the quarterback spot after a season-ending injury to Trey Lance, Garoppolo finished 18-of-29 with 211 yards, one touchdown, and one interception. He also stepped out of the end



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-Broncos: Jimmy is going to be Jimmy

By Wayne Breezie

No matter how you want to spin last night's loss to the Denver Broncos, this one was solely on the quarterback. Jimmy Garoppolo finished the game, completing 18 passes on 29 attempts for 211 yards, one touchdown, and an interception. Statistically, Garoppolo was better than Denver Broncos quarterback Russell Wilson, but as Garoppolo says, stats don't matter. It's all about winning football games. It's almost like 49ers fans are stuck in an episode of Rod Serling's Twilight Zone when Jimmy Garoppolo plays. One week you get this fired-up style of quarterback that appears willing to do whatever it takes to win a game, and then you have the incompetent type of quarterback that looks lost like a deer in headlights. The first quarter of the game seemed promising. The



Sean Payton believes 49ers will eventually replace Trey Lance with Jimmy Garoppolo

By David Bonilla

Former NFL coach Sean Payton is the latest to toss criticism Trey Lance's way (h/t Tom Dierberger of NBC Sports Bay Area), following some harsh words from another former NFL coach, Mike Martz. Actually, Payton's comments came before Martz's but started to make their rounds around social media today. Payton believes the San Francisco 49ers will eventually replace their second-year quarterback with veteran Jimmy Garoppolo, the former starter now serving as Lance's backup. As for Martz, he was less-than-impressed by Lance's first outing as a full-time
