Kyle Shanahan was asked if 49ers would consider trading Jimmy Garoppolo to Cowboys

Sep 12, 2022 at 4:18 PM--


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 Dallas for some draft compensation? A reporter asked head coach Kyle Shanahan that question on Monday afternoon.

"Just like all players, we'll listen to anybody on anything," Shanahan responded. "That never changes for any player or coach. We'll always listen to anybody."

Or coach?

Shanahan was obviously having a little fun with the question there after providing his standard response to inquiries about trades.

After failing to find a trade partner, the 49ers signed Garoppolo to a restructured one-year contract that will keep him (unless there is a trade) with the team through the 2022 season and make him a free agent in 2023. There is a no-trade clause, but that just ensures that Garoppolo has veto power over potential destinations.

Troy Aikman on 49ers: If I could hire any coach, Kyle Shanahan would be that guy

Hall of Fame quarterback Troy Aikman, who was in the broadcast booth for Monday night's game in Mexico City between the San Francisco 49ers and Arizona Cardinals, said he is "a huge buyer" of the former as a legitimate threat in the NFC. The team is filled with star power and playmakers, evident by its dominant 38-10 primetime win. However, that's not necessarily the main reason the analyst has believed in the Niners for several years. "A big reason for that is because of [head coach] Kyle Shanahan," Aikman said on ESPN's SportsCenter after the game. "If I was in a position to hire a head coach, and I could hire anybody I wanted, Kyle Shanahan would be that guy. The way he's able to utilize his personnel ... I think, as we mentioned in our game, John Lynch, their general

Steve Young has said he believes there are trust issues between head coach Kyle Shanahan and quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo. However, the Hall of Fame player, now an analyst for ESPN, wants to see Garoppolo play 10 more years for the San Francisco 49ers. Garoppolo is having one of the best statistical seasons of his career. He has passed for 2,159 yards through nine games, throwing 15 touchdowns and four interceptions. His 104.1 passer rating is his highest with the 49ers and ranks fourth in the NFL this season. Over the last three games, Garoppolo has completed 73.2 percent of his passes for 703 yards, six touchdowns, and no interceptions while



Kyle Shanahan believes 49ers players stepping up has helped Jimmy Garoppolo, talks crowd expectations in Mexico

Jimmy Garoppolo is turning in one of the better seasons of his career. The San Francisco 49ers quarterback stepped in for an injured Trey Lance in Week 2 and has once again asserted himself as the leader on offense. Garoppolo has played well in the last two games. He hasn't thrown an interception in those matchups—a 31-14 win over the Los Angeles Rams and a 22-16 win over the Los Angeles Chargers. Tight end George Kittle has been one of Garoppolo's biggest supporters and had a theory as to why the quarterback has impressed over the last few weeks. "I

Kyle Shanahan was feeling good on Monday night. The head coach's San Francisco 49ers won their third consecutive game, with the latest being a 38-10 victory over the Arizona Cardinals in an international matchup in Mexico City. The 49ers are getting hot, and have become a favorite to make some noise down the stretch and in the NFC playoffs, assuming things continue to trend upward for the team. "I felt real good about the guys," Shanahan told reporters after the game. "[The players] had a great week of practice. They've really been gelling these last three weeks. I feel like it's gotten a little better each week, and it was nice to put a full game together today." Players are also feeling the momentum build up. "We're definately ready to
