Jimmy Garoppolo has been on the trade block with no indication that a move is close. Here are three potential offers that could get the 49ers to make a move.
When the 2021 season ended, it seemed as though it wouldn’t be long until Jimmy Garopollo was part of a different team. But then, the quarterback musical chairs game ended and Garoppolo — as well as Baker Mayfield — were still with their respective teams.
Mayfield’s situation is different since the Cleveland Browns went out and traded several picks for Deshaun Watson, but Garoppolo still finds himself in a weird spot. San Francisco is said to be ready to move on and play Trey Lance but they also don’t want to give Garoppolo away.
Having said all of that, there’s still a chance he gets moved and here we look at three trade proposals the 49ers should take.
Jimmy Garoppolo trade proposal No. 3
New York Giants get:
Jimmy Garoppolo, QB
San Francisco 49ers get:
- 67th Overall Pick
- 81st Overall Pick
The New York Giants say they’re willing to give Daniel Jones another season, but should they? Jones has yet to light the NFL on fire and while Jimmy Garoppolo has his share of issues, it would be impossible to argue he’s a worse option than Daniel Jones at this point.
New head coach Brian Daboll does have Tyrod Taylor as well but Taylor has struggled with his consistency and durability throughout his career.
For the Niners, it would be hard to turn down two picks in Round 3 and the Giants have enough firepower to make this sacrifice for a new signal-caller.
