San Francisco 49ers QB Jimmy Garoppolo could be traded right before training camp when he's cleared from his offseason shoulder surgery, according to ESPN's Nick Wagoner. 'Garoppolo's shoulder is slated to get the all-clear in late June or early July, at which point the Niners will again seek a trade partner,' Wagoner writes. He also doesn't rule out Garoppolo being released if a trade can't be reached.

San Francisco 49ers quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo (shoulder) was nearly traded, according to general manager John Lynch. However, discussions came to a "screeching halt" once the veteran needed surgery on his throwing shoulder. With Garoppolo still sidelined at least until training camp, there's a chance he may remain on the roster this season. The former Patriot started 15 games in 2021, finishing with 3,810 yards, 20 touchdowns, and 12 interceptions while connecting on 68% of his throws. Trey Lance is still anticipated to be the starting-signal caller moving ahead. Yet, with Garoppolo potentially not being traded, Lance may have some tougher competition to remain under center.

San Francisco 49ers quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo has been on the trade block all offseason long. However, there hasn't been much movement on the trade front, which could be a problem soon. One team that would make sense on paper is the Carolina Panthers. Although, David Newton of ESPN mentioned that Garoppolo has never been on the Panthers radar. In fact, the organization doesn't view him as much of an upgrade over Sam Darnold. At this point, it seems likely that the Panthers are going to wait until after the draft to consider veteran quarterback options.

San Francisco 49ers quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo (shoulder) said the shoulder surgery that he had six weeks ago went well and that he thinks he'll be ready for training camp. However, Garoppolo isn't throwing yet and said "there's a lot of steps in between now and then, but I think we'll be ready by then." Some reports suggested he'd need four to six months to recover after having surgery on March 8, so there's still no guarantee that he'll be ready, which is basically while he has yet to be traded. If the Niners decide to hang onto the 30-year-old, it'll be because they're still unsure if Trey Lance is ready to be the full-time starter under center. Garoppolo is a proven leader on the football field, but he hasn't been much more than a low-upside fantasy backup as more of a game manager.

San Francisco 49ers QB Jimmy Garoppolo (shoulder) has yet to resume throwing but said he expects to be ready for training camp.

Fantasy Spin: Jimmy G could be a high-end QB2 without a lot of fanfare, but there are a lot of moving pieces for his draft stock right now. For instance, where will he play? Who will he throw to? There is a whole lot of confusion right now. Stay tuned.

San Francisco 49ers quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo has been rehabbing his throwing shoulder away from team facilities, per his surgeon's instructions. With the team's offseason workouts beginning on Tuesday, he will not be there. The 30-year-old Garoppolo has been a lightning rod for criticism during his time in San Francisco despite reaching the NFC Championship game or better in his only two healthy seasons. In 2021, he threw for 3,810 yards, 20 touchdowns and 12 interceptions in 15 starts. While we do not know exactly how his shoulder is recovering after his surgery, any rehab activity at all is good news to revive his declining trade value heading into next week's draft. Garoppolo's expected successor, quarterback Trey Lance, is one of the most intriguing quarterbacks for fantasy heading into 2022. The sooner Lance is named the unquestioned starter, the sooner his average draft position is likely to skyrocket.

San Francisco 49ers QB Jimmy Garoppolo (shoulder) has been rehabbing his shoulder off-site, per his surgeon's instructions. Both sides are on the same page, and he won't be there for offseason conditioning Tuesday, April 19.

Fantasy Spin: Jimmy G's fantasy prospects aren't too great this season, but he could surprise as a top-notch QB2. Watch his progress and see what uniform he dons.

The San Francisco 49ers have been open about their interest in shopping quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo (shoulder) ahead of the 2022 season in an attempt to make Trey Lance the unquestioned QB1. But the trade market hasn't been as fruitful as anticipated, which led head coach Kyle Shanahan to say Tuesday that he could see a scenario where Garoppolo opens the year with San Francisco. Garoppolo underwent shoulder surgery earlier in March, which has thrown his trade value into flux. While it certainly seems that if both open the year in scarlet and gold, Lance would be the starter, Shanahan declined to name who would open games under center. While a trade may improve Garoppolo's fantasy stock, another year under center in San Fran -- no matter how improbable -- may help him retain some value, although primarily in two-QB formats.

San Francisco 49ers QB Jimmy Garoppolo likely will not be released this offseason, according to general manager John Lynch. The team plans to keep Garoppolo for now and will continue to look for trade that will give them a fair return.

Fantasy Spin: It seems like Garoppolo could open training camp with the 49ers, so fantasy players will need to monitor the situation over the next several months. He should be considered a No. 2 fantasy quarterback if he starts for a team in 2022.

From TheHuddle

Mar 28 11:00am ET

The San Francisco 49ers are likely to remain patient with quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo (shoulder) and seem willing to hold onto him for a while to allow him to get healthy and to see if any trade scenarios materialize. Garoppolo is in the final year of his contract and has a $26.9 million salary cap hit, so any teams interested in trading for him will want to make sure his shoulder is good to go for 2022. The 30-year-old underwent surgery in early March and is expected to need roughly 16 weeks to complete his rehab, so he may not be dealt for a while and is most likely to miss the offseason program. The 49ers surely want to trade Jimmy G and capitalize now, but if they are forced to hang onto him, it would also give Trey Lance more time to develop.

San Francisco 49ers QB Jimmy Garoppolo (shoulder) was expected to be traded this offseason, but the team appears willing to hold on to him for now and see how his trade market changes in the future.

Fantasy Spin: Garoppolo will be sidelined for most of the offseason because of shoulder surgery, so fantasy players may not know about his situation until closer to training camp. He played well at times this past season but would only be a No. 2 fantasy quarterback if he starts for a team.

San Francisco 49ers quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo (shoulder) has been the target of some trade rumors this offseason. Teams that have been linked to him have included the New Orleans Saints and the Pittsburgh Steelers. However, a new suitor could have just arisen. The Indianapolis Colts traded starting quarterback Carson Wentz to the Washington Commanders on Wednesday, leaving the team with just Sam Ehlinger and James Morgan in the team's quarterback room. The Colts are coming off of a solid 9-8 season and will certainly be on the prowl for a new quarterback to succeed Wentz. Garoppolo is coming off shoulder surgery, but is expected to be good to go well before training camp. He'd be an extremely logical target for the Colts and there's a good chance the 49ers will make him available with Trey Lance waiting in the wings.

San Francisco 49ers QB Jimmy Garoppolo (shoulder) is expected to draw interest from the Indianapolis Colts following the trade of QB Carson Wentz to the Washington Commanders on Wednesday, March 9.

Fantasy Spin: Trade one veteran game manager away to acquire a new one who is coming off shoulder surgery? Meh. Garoppolo isn't an obvious upgrade from Wentz, and he's certainly not a fantasy football target for gamers serious about winning.

San Francisco 49ers QB Jimmy Garoppolo (shoulder) underwent surgery on his injured right shoulder Tuesday, March 8, according to NFL Network's Mike Garafolo.

Fantasy Spin: As Garafolo notes, the hope is Garoppolo is throwing well ahead of training camp. Whether it will be in San Francisco or not is another story. Given the need for quality quarterbacks and the lack of proven options in free agency and/or the draft, it seems likely Garoppolo will be dealt for a Day 2 pick even with the uncertainty surrounding his shoulder. With the Denver Broncos answering their quarterback need earlier in the day, the Washington Commanders are emerging as a favorite for his services.

San Francisco 49ers quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo (shoulder) underwent successful shoulder surgery on Tuesday, according to sources. The plan and hope is that Garappolo resumes throwing well ahead of training camp this summer. The surgery addressed a capsule issue in his right shoulder, with general manager John Lynch calling the procedure more of a minor surgery. Garoppolo also dealt with a finger issue in 2021 that required surgery, but his injuries aren't expected to keep the Niners from trading him this offseason. Interested teams will surely be keeping tabs on his rehab, and the 30-year-old's fantasy value next season will depend entirely on where he winds up. Although he almost led San Fran to their second Super Bowl appearance in the last three years, he's more of a game manager as a QB2 in fantasy.

The New Orleans Saints, who seemed poised to re-sign Jameis Winston, could instead look into trading for San Francisco 49ers quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo, according to ESPN's Jeremy Fowler. The knowledgeable NFL reporter heard this rumor circulating at the recent Scouting Combine and believes that Garoppolo could be a top name on the trade market if Aaron Rodgers and Russell Wilson aren't traded. Of course, the 49ers would need to be on board with this idea. While they do have No. 3 pick Trey Lance waiting in the wings, Garoppolo had a strong 2021 campaign and helped lead San Francisco to the NFC Championship. This past season, the eight-year veteran appeared in 15 games, completing 301 of 441 passes for 3,810 yards, 20 touchdowns, and 12 interceptions. His exact value for 2022 is completely dependent on where he's playing, but the former second-round pick certainly has some mid-to-low QB2 intrigue heading into fantasy drafts.

The New Orleans Saints could be interested in acquiring San Francisco 49ers QB Jimmy Garoppolo (shoulder), according to rumors heard by ESPN's Jeremy Fowler. 'But if [Aaron] Rodgers and [Russell] Wilson aren't moved, Garoppolo becomes one of the top options available. Maybe New Orleans at least kicks this idea around,' Fowler wrote.

Mar 4 8:50pm ET

Former Monday Night Football analyst Brian Griese is leaving ESPN to become the San Francisco 49ers quarterbacks coach, according to sources. Griese and head coach Kyle Shanahan have known each other for years, and Griese was the quarterback for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers when Shanahan was on the coaching staff. Griese will be replacing Rich Scangarello, who became the offensive coordinator for the University of Kentucky earlier in the week. Griese will be stepping into a coaching job for the first time since he retired from the NFL in 2008. The 49ers are expected to trade quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo this offseason in order to give last year's first-rounder, Trey Lance, the full-time starting gig under center in 2022 and beyond. So Griese will play a big role in Lance's development heading into his sophomore season.

Mar 4 12:40pm ET

The Pittsburgh Steelers will look anywhere and everywhere this offseason when it comes to replacing retired quarterback Ben Roethlisberger, and San Francisco 49ers quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo is a name to keep an eye on in their search. As of right now, Mason Rudolph and Dwayne Haskins are set to compete for the starting job in training camp, but the Steelers could look to the draft or free agents such as Mitchell Trubisky. Garoppolo's trade value may have taken a hit after it was recently announced that he's scheduled to undergo shoulder surgery on his throwing arm, but the surgery is considered minor, making it likely that the 30-year-old will be ready for the 2022 season. No matter where Jimmy G lands, he'll be more of a midrange QB2 for fantasy managers if he's starting under center.

From RotoBaller

Mar 3 2:23pm ET

San Francisco 49ers QB Jimmy Garoppolo is a 'name to keep an eye on' for the Pittsburgh Steelers, according to Ian Rapoport of NFL Media. Per Rapoport, Buffalo Bills impending free-agent QB Mitchell Trubisky is also 'in the mix.'

Fantasy Spin: Neither quarterback would solve the Steelers' quarterback issue long-term, but either one would likely be an upgrade on what Pittsburgh currently has on the depth chart: Mason Rudolph and Dwayne Haskins. In the case of Garoppolo, it could be argued he would be an improvement over the 2021 version of Ben Roethlisberger, so that might be an avenue for the team to take if Pittsburgh isn't thrilled with this year's draft class. Either way, expect the Steelers to address the position at some point during April's draft.
