The San Francisco 49ers did not find another team to trade for quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo this offseason, which ended up being excellent news for the five-time Super Bowl-winning franchise, as the decision to start Trey Lance only lasted one game and a few plays into the second.
So after Lance suffered a broken ankle in the win against the Seattle Seahawks that will keep him out for the rest of the season, Jimmy G came out of oblivion and returned to the starting QB position, which has given the 49ers the security of having a competent player to command the offense in the short term.
Carson Wentz, the Commanders’ second option
However, according to a report by ESPN, San Francisco had all the details ready and almost agreed for Garoppolo to go to the Washington Commanders, this at the beginning of the season break and before the quarterback who led the 49ers to Super Bowl LIV had to undergo surgery on his right shoulder that made the team of the capital of the United States give up looking for him and decided to take Carson Wentz from the Indianapolis Colts.
After the surgery, the Draft passed, training camps came and Garoppolo was not requested by another team, so San Francisco decided to negotiate with the quarterback a new contract that gives him $6.5 million fully guaranteed (lowering his salary) but guaranteeing with no trade and no tag clauses that Jimmy G finishing this campaign will be free to sign with whomever he wants.
What’s next for the 49ers and Jimmy Garoppolo?
For now the 49ers lost to the Chicago Bears in week 1 and defeated the Seattle Seahawks in week 2 and will face Russell Wilson’s Denver Broncos in week 3.
