Throughout a whole offseason of Jimmy Garoppolo hypothesis, most onlookers assumed it was solely a matter of when the quarterback discovered a brand new dwelling.
ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported that Garoppolo and the San Francisco 49ers agreed to a restructured contract with a no-trade clause and no-tag clause. The veteran’s base wage will drop to $6.5 million with a $500,000 roster bonus and as much as practically $9 million in incentives.
It isn’t the result anybody anticipated. ESPN’s Jeremy Fowler referred to as the information a “main swing in momentum,” claiming that groups anticipated the 49ers to launch him.
Though not the anticipated transfer, some like the choice from either side. The 49ers preserve Garoppolo as a high-quality backup to Trey Lance, and Jimmy G will get to manage the place he performs subsequent.
After all, others questioned if the 49ers will waver on their dedication to Lance with Garoppolo nonetheless on the workforce.
Preserving Garoppolo creates a sticky scenario for Lance, who could now be always wanting over his shoulder. If he does not progress as shortly because the 49ers like, Kyle Shanahan may return to a quarterback who has taken the franchise to a Tremendous Bowl and convention championship sport.
Lance will presumably nonetheless begin for San Francisco in Week 1 towards the Chicago Bears, however he isn’t assured to maintain the job away from Jimmy G all season.
