Your daily San Francisco 49ers news for Friday, February 25th, 2022

Kawakami on KNBR: 49ers probably aren’t getting Garoppolo offers they hoped

I’m a GM; I call John Lynch, [saying], ‘John, we’ll take Garoppolo, [give you a] third-round pick.’ [Lynch could reply], ‘Third-round pick? Have you seen the stories? Trey Lance isn’t ready! We’re going to keep Garoppolo another year.’ By the way, which [is what] Adam Schefter is suggesting—Garoppolo would stay next year.”

“Tom Brady, I’m not saying he can’t do it. I feel like he can. He’s proven it, that he can go to another franchise, and win a Super Bowl that year. ... But since he retired, I feel like that’s sort of the same situation with Kobe Bryant. When he retired from the Lakers, all the media kept saying, ‘Oh yeah, Kobe said he’s not done. He’s going to come back and play with LeBron [James].’ But he never came back. He was retired. RIP.”

Mailbag: Could the 49ers and Tom Brady really happen? (paywall)
