49ers’ Jimmy Garoppolo just misses NFL Top 100 Players of 2022

Aug 29, 2022 at 7:03 AM--

The following seven San Francisco 49ers ranked within NFL Network's Top 100 Players of 2022.

NFL.com revealed that one other Niner was named among the honorable mentions. Quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo came in at No. 106 on the list, just missing the top 100.

Of course, Garoppolo isn't likely to be with the 49ers for much longer. The veteran quarterback has not practiced with the team all offseason, with San Francisco hoping for a trade partner to materialize before his $24.2 million base salary becomes fully guaranteed. So far, no trade partners have emerged.

Garoppolo underwent shoulder surgery on March 8, hurting his trade value. With most quarterback spots finalized around the league, San Francisco is likely banking that an injury or desperate move occurs soon. Right now, there reportedly are no trade partners.

"Obviously, [Garoppolo] is not their future quarterback," NFL insider Ian Rapoport recently said. "They have made it abundantly clear it is going to be Trey Lance. Are the 49ers going to be able to trade him and his $20-plus million salary? My understanding is a trade partner, as of right now, absent some quarterback injury, does not exist.

"So the 49ers options, they've made this very clear, including recently from the comments of general manager John Lynch [Thursday] night, the options are either cut him or somehow, some way, keep him on the roster. We will see which way they end up going, but an answer must come pretty soon."

A release would free up Garoppolo's hefty salary. However, it would also allow the quarterback to sign anywhere, including with the division-rival Seattle Seahawks, who could use a quarterback upgrade. Obviously, that's a scenario the 49ers would love to avoid.

Garoppolo is 33-14 as a starter over his career and 31-14 during his four-and-a-half seasons with San Francisco. He has helped guide the team to two NFC Championship Games and a Super Bowl over the last three seasons. The quarterback completed 68.3 percent of his passes for 3,810 yards, 20 touchdowns, and 12 interceptions through 15 games in 2021.

49ers' Jimmy Garoppolo on NFL future: "I'll worry about that at the end of the year"

By David Bonilla

Jimmy Garoppolo is setting himself up for a nice payday next year. The San Francisco 49ers quarterback is scheduled to be a free agent, and his market is expected to be much improved compared to this past offseason. Garoppolo expected to be elsewhere this season, even after his trade stock plummeted following offseason shoulder surgery. With no one interested in a quarterback going through rehab, Garoppolo signed a restructured one-year deal with the 49ers to serve as Trey Lance's backup. The one caveat being that San Francisco couldn't use the franchise tag on him in 2023, allowing him to test the free agent market freely. Garoppolo entered the season looking to support Lance and do what he could in his role as QB2. However, everything changed in Week 2 when

New Orleans Saints fans were fuming after the game. Many felt that San Francisco 49ers pass rusher Nick Bosa was early off the line of scrimmage on the fourth-down play that led to sack number 11.5 for the defender this season. Even Bosa wasn't sure the play would stand. "It was great. I didn't think it counted, but once I realized it did, I was pretty happy," Bosa told reporters after the 49ers' 13-0 win at Levi's Stadium. A reporter asked Bosa why he felt it might not have counted. "I thought I jumped, but I looked at it," Bosa shared. "I think it was just a good jump." That, of course, led to some laughs from the 49ers media. The talented defensive end went on to discuss the play further. "I think the tackle got off at
