'Not a Lock': San Francisco 49ers Aren't Ready to Trade Jimmy Garoppolo this offseason

As the 49ers enter a critical offseason, the prevailing belief is that San Francisco will trade veteran quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo and fully turn the page to the Trey Lance era. However, ESPN's Adam Schefter isn't sold on the idea that Garoppolo will 100 percent be on a different team next season.

What Schefter said on this

"I'm just telling you that Trey Lance was probably further behind than people realized,"

Schefter added

"Trey Lance is greener than people realized. Trey Lance is going to need more work than people realized. And they have a roster that can win now."

Schefter on Jimmy Garoppolo

"Now, you're San Francisco. Now you can say, 'Jimmy Garoppolo is unquestionably one of the most popular and respected players in our locker room. Players love playing with him. We have him under contract this year at a very friendly $25 million cap number. And if we play with him this year, and we lose him after this year, we're going to get a third-round comp pick back in return.''

Will Kyle Shanahan runs with Garoppolo one more time

It's more than likely that Garoppolo's 49ers tenure ended with a 20-17 loss to the Los Angeles Rams in the NFC Championship Game. But, if Lance truly isn't where he needs to be, head coach Kyle Shanahan might not hesitate to run it back with Garoppolo one more time.
