What will the 49ers do with
They’ve been trying to trade him. They may have missed their window to maximize the return. So what will the 49ers do with quarterback
It’s a complicated situation, to put it mildly. He’s due to make more than $25 million in the final year of his current contract
He’s recovering from shoulder surgery. Last year, the 49ers invested three first-round picks and a third-rounder in Trey Lance
They’ve also given a one-year, $2 million contract to Nate Sudfeld, a clear signal that he’ll potentially be the backup to Lance.
We’d heard the 49ers had been telling interested teams they have an offer of two second-round picks
At some point, they may have nothing. Even if they do, is it a team Garoppolo will want to join?
If the new team wants him to extend his contract as part of the trade, will he decline? He’s got leverage.
So do the 49ers. With none of the money guaranteed, they can squat on him until the eve of the start of the regular season
Maybe the 49ers can finally find a willing taker for Garoppolo, at an acceptable price. If not, the next move is anyone’s guess.
