That actually may be why they didn't pick up the option. If he's healthy in pre-season, and the 49ers have already decided to move on; they may be able to trade them more easily as a one year rental to a team that lost a guard to injury.

May get a 5th out of the deal

Garnett + Tartt + a 4th in a trade to Miami for SS Reshad Jones. Would be sweet!

Let's hope together.

I may have gotten ahead of myself...maybe June 1 cuts lol
I would be happy for a conditional 7th round pick to be honest. See how he plays in the preseason. Kid just cannot stay healthy
Add him to the already very long list of busts drafted by this franchise this decade
So is Garnett a FA now or will he be on the team this season? How does this work

Let's not. The guy is proven fool's gold. As soon as he wins a starting spot, 2 games in he'll be injured again and out for the season and now you're f**ked. It's best to move on from Glass Joe's like he and Ward but our FO gonna FO.

are we ever going to advance past... well lets hope he stays healthy. lets hope he gets it. wishing and hoping and hoping that dreams come true usually lead to teams picking number two overall

Let's not hope he stays healthy and wins the RG spot? lol Ok. Like it or not he's the most talented guard they have...which is sad

Sadly, that's probably true. At some point it's smart to stop 'hoping' for players like this and come up with better options and not count on them.

Well that ship has sailed this offseason

there was no better option at the four pick than the punter i guess
Biggest non surprise ever. Lol

which they say are over rated.. just think a year ago we were being told by the niners and homers that.. we have three first round picks so no need to panic and go get a guard.. ok. 2 years ago we were told. hey. jimmy made the o line better so no need to get a guard. ok

On the team but now in a "contract year" so the team loses a little leverage. They could try to extend him now for less than the 5th year option (likely) or do nothing and let him play the season and earn a new contract in the off season. If he balls out then he could potentially leave and play somewhere else. I think they'll offer him a Paraag special and extend him. And count me in the group that's rooting for him to stay healthy and become a solid starter at guard. We need that badly.

Gotcha, yea I'd like him to stay healthy and prove to us he's worth resigning. We need interior OL help big time.
