Golden Nuggets: 24 weeks until football

Your daily San Francisco 49ers news for Sunday, March 27th, 2022

Shoulder surgery may force 49ers to cut Jimmy Garoppolo

“Unless Garoppolo is willing to do a new contract as part of a trade (and why would he be?), a trade isn’t happened. The most likely result, the source predicted, is that the 49ers will have to cut him.”

What will the 49ers do with Jimmy Garoppolo?

“It’s definitely a conundrum for the 49ers. With the league convening over the next few days in Florida for the first in-person annual meetings since 2019, maybe the 49ers can finally find a willing taker for Garoppolo, at an acceptable price. If not, the next move is anyone’s guess.”

49ers still awaiting outcome of massive trade 1 year later

“One year ago Saturday the 49ers pulled the trigger on a monster trade with the Dolphins to move up to No. 3 overall in the 2021 draft where they selected North Dakota State quarterback Trey Lance.”

49ers don’t need to ‘win the offseason’ to be a factor in 2022

“By the time the dust settles the 49ers will have the core of their roster that went to the NFC championship game and carried a two-score lead into the fourth quarter. Minor tweaks might actually improve the team top-to-bottom, even if they didn’t grab any offseason NFL headlines.”

Jimmy Garoppolo: The one trade scenario 49ers are holding out for

“This made the Eagles’ previous starter, Sam Bradford, expendable. It’s not unlike what the Niners are dealing with between Garoppolo and Lance.

Bradford had been unimpressive the previous season under Kelly, and Wentz was going to be the guy in Philly anyway, at least at that time. With no trade market, though, Philadelphia had to wait for its options to develop.

They did.

On Aug. 30 that year, then-Minnesota Vikings quarterback Teddy Bridgewater suffered a serious knee injury, including an ACL tear, during practice that nearly ended his career.”
