NFL insider believes 49ers trade Jimmy Garoppolo by Nov. 1, slams reporting about Trey Lance

Sep 7, 2022 at 5:35 PM--

Respected reporter Benjamin Allbright covers the Denver Broncos. He also has many sources around the NFL, so he knows what's going on with the 31 other teams too, including the San Francisco 49ers.

While Jimmy Garoppolo signed a restructured one-year deal to remain with the 49ers in 2022, Allbright doesn't expect the quarterback to be on the roster past November 1.

"It's a situation where, I think if you look at it from the internal optics of it versus actual practicalities of it, as soon as the Niners get the trade package they want, Jimmy's going to be gone," Allbright said on 95.7 The Game's The Morning Roast. "I don't even expect Jimmy to be there at the end of the season, on that roster, even with that no-trade clause. They wanted to be rid of him. They couldn't get the package they wanted because they had no leverage after the surgery."

Garoppolo's no-trade clause doesn't prohibit the Niners from trading him. It allows him to veto any potential trade and seek a desirable destination.

Allbright added, "I do believe he will be traded before the trade deadline."

The reporter also shared his opinion on the various reports coming from the media regarding second-year quarterback Trey Lance. There have been rumblings of worry among the coaching staff over up and down offseason practices, the quarterback's mechanics, and much more.

Some have speculated that Garoppolo's return represents a lack of confidence from the organization in the second-year quarterback. Others predict that Garoppolo could replace Lance at some point this season, should the latter stumble through his first season as a starter.

"I've seen all this just bad reporting out of there," Allbright said. "Talking about the coaches don't like Trey Lance. That's absolutely false. Talking about they're going to switch back to Jimmy Garoppolo. That's false. All that stuff, it's absolute nonsense. I don't know where this stuff gets cooked up.

"It is the Trey Lance show. They traded those picks for Trey Lance. They weren't trading it for Mac Jones. All this revisionist history, people who were wrong, just need to shut their mouths. They were wrong."

Allbright has been having completely different conversations with his sources inside the organization, which makes the various reports and alleged misinformation frustrating to the NFL insider.

"What I hear is almost the opposite of what I'm seeing out there with a lot of this stuff," Allbright declared. "... I just think it's the unknown. I think people fill the unknown in with whatever fits their preconceived bias. They don't know about Trey Lance. They haven't even seen a full body of work, and so they fill in that unknown with whatever they can in order to generate content. I just hate that kind of stuff."

There was no shortage of topics to talk about from a 49ers perspective after Sunday's 33-17 win over the Miami Dolphins, and we're going to dive right into them in this edition of 49ers Notebook. While much of Sunday's postgame discussion dealt with the season-ending foot injury to quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo and the performance of Garoppolo's replacement, Brock Purdy, there were a number of other interesting and entertaining moments we're going to get into here, including some pointed (but friendly) words defensive end Nick Bosa had for head coach Kyle Shanahan and a bit of smack talk from wide receiver Deebo Samuel to former 49ers running back Raheem Mostert.

Despite rookie quarterback Brock Purdy leading the San Francisco 49ers to a 33-17 victory on Sunday against the Miami Dolphins, you can sense a shift in the hopes of The Faithful. The fanbase already had to endure losing one starting quarterback in Trey Lance. Then on Sunday, it watched another go down for the season when Jimmy Garoppolo exited after the first offensive drive with a broken foot. "This is heartbreak," former 49ers cornerback Richard Sherman said on his podcast after the game. "This is terror. This is a nightmare scenario for the San Francisco 49ers. Jimmy G, who was saving the season, goes out, and Brock Purdy does a solid—very solid—job. "Kyle Shanahan deserves a ton of credit for what he was able to do with Brock Purdy on short

Brock Purdy started warming up on the sideline after San Francisco 49ers starting quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo took a hit to his surgically repaired left knee and was slow to get up. Garoppolo appeared to be in pain. The quarterback was asked if he ever thought he might need to exit the game. "Nah, I was staying in the game," Garoppolo told reporters after the 49ers' 13-0 win over the New Orleans Saints. "I knew what type of game it was. That's what it was all day. That wasn't the only hit that was questionable like that. Throughout the whole game, it was like that, but that's football. "It was a gritty game. I'm proud of the guys today, how they fought through the adversity that was thrown at us. There was all kinds of adversity, and we just kept going. I think
