The San Francisco 49ers might be ready to move on from Jimmy Garoppolo, but it looks like a bunch of players on the team wants him to stay.
Jimmy G is no closer to being traded now than he was at the start of the offseason. Just days ago, the 49ers gave Jimmy Garoppolo‘s agents permission to seek a trade.
However, according to a report, many current 49ers players prefer Garoppolo to start over Lance.
“Sean Salisbury, on a Houston radio show, said he spoke to someone close to the #49ers QB situation who told him many of the #Niners players prefer Jimmy Garoppolo to start. This is maddening. I’m glad it will be over soon,” said Marc Adams.
Despite what many feel about Jimmy G, he is a proven winner. The 30-year-old quarterback has been to two NFC Championship games in the past three seasons.
ESPN’s Jeremy Fowler reported last week that the Seahawks have had internal discussions about the possibility of trading for Garoppolo, but nothing has materialized as of yet.
In 2021, Garoppolo appeared in 15 games for the 49ers and completed 68.3 percent of his passes for 3,810 yards, 20 touchdowns, and 12 interceptions. He also rushed for 51 yards and three touchdowns.
