Schefter: Commanders were set to send multiple picks to 49ers for Jimmy Garoppolo before surgery nixed deal

Sep 25, 2022 at 7:51 AM--


San Francisco 49ers general manager John Lynch never named the specific teams expressing interest in Jimmy Garoppolo earlier in the offseason. Last week, ESPN's Tim Keown and Nick Wagoner revealed that the Niners expected the quarterback to be shipped to the Washington Commanders, an option that evaporated when Garoppolo opted to undergo shoulder surgery.

Today, ESPN's Adam Schefter revealed some more minor tidbits about the trade that never happened.

"The deal would have involved multiple draft picks, according to sources," Schefter wrote, "but was disrupted by the surgery to Garoppolo's throwing shoulder, which prompted the Commanders to move on from their talks with the Niners and trade two third-round picks and a fourth-round pick to the Indianapolis Colts for Carson Wentz."

Of course, none of this rehashed news matters now. The 49ers weren't able to find a trade partner after the NFL's offseason game of quarterback musical chairs had finished, leaving Garoppolo as the one without a seat. So San Francisco offered to restructure his deal, allowing him to remain with the team for one more season.

That move ended up saving the 49ers' season. Starter Trey Lance is out for the remainder of the season due to a broken ankle suffered in Week 2. Garoppolo, the team's starter of the past four-and-a-half seasons, returns to the top of the depth chart after a bizarre offseason of trade rumors and shoulder recovery.

"No OTAs, no training camp," Garoppolo said on Thursday. "It was a different type of year and I've been in some weird situations here, obviously. But yeah, this one, it had some good and bad, though. The shoulder feels good and that's number one. So once I was physically feeling better, and the rest of the things just kind of fell into place, I guess."

Update


Commanders head coach Ron Rivera was asked about ESPN's report. He clearly disputed its accuracy, stating, "That was a bull crap report."

49ers set to face Cardinals' Colt McCoy, not Kyler Murray, in Mexico

According to NFL Network insider Ian Rapoport and other sources, the Arizona Cardinals are set to start Colt McCoy tonight against the San Francisco 49ers in Mexico City. On Saturday, the team listed its regular starter, Kyler Murray, as "questionable" due to a hamstring injury. Murray will miss his second consecutive game for the Cardinals. There was some question about whether McCoy would be healthy enough to start tonight's game. Like Murray, he was limited in practices this past week due to a knee injury sustained in Week 10 against the Los Angeles Rams. However, unlike Murray, McCoy did not appear on the Cardinals' Saturday injury report. RELATED:

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
