Jimmy Garoppolo trade rumors: 49ers have been offered two second-round picks for veteran QB, per report


The quarterback carousel this offseason has been a wild ride, but there are still players looking for new homes. Free agents like Jameis Winston and Marcus Mariota have still yet to put pen to paper, and then there are a couple of other quarterbacks, like Baker Mayfield and Jimmy Garoppolo, waiting to be traded. 

With Mayfield and Garoppolo having already been replaced, it’s curious as to what their teams could get in exchange for their services. According to Mike Florio of Pro Football TalkSan Francisco 49ers general manager John Lynch is telling interested teams that they have an offer of two second-round picks for Garoppolo on the table.

As for the team that has made this reported offer, it’s likely either the Indianapolis Colts, New Orleans Saints or Carolina Panthers. The Seattle Seahawks are another team looking for a new quarterback, but the 49ers likely wouldn’t trade Garoppolo within the division.

Garoppolo is coming off of shoulder surgery, but it’s not something that has affected his trade market. He’s 37-16 as a starter in his career including playoff games, and helped the 49ers get to the doorstep of the Super Bowl two out of the last three years.  

The Colts were a team reported to be in the mix for Garoppolo this month, but their plans may have changed with Mayfield being available. A team to keep an eye on is the Panthers, who missed out on Deshaun Watson and have been in the market for a new quarterback for years now. Carolina signed Teddy Bridgewater ahead of the 2020 season before trading him to the Denver Broncos a year later. Then, the Panthers traded three picks to the New York Jets for Sam Darnold. That’s not a move that worked out either.

Garoppolo is set to enter the final year of the five-year, $137.5 million deal he signed in 2018. His cap hit for 2022 is $26.95 million, per Spotrac.
