Jimmy Garoppolo is on schedule to start throwing over the subsequent few weeks, and that may lead to his trade market heating up.
In line with ESPN, the 49ers’ quarterback is anticipated to be cleared to throw soon following right shoulder surgery in March and at that time, teams could begin to explore acquiring him.
While Garoppolo has been sidelined throughout the offseason, Trey Lance has been working with the starters. Nate Sudfeld has been the team’s No. 2 quarterback and rookie Brock Purdy was within the No. 3 spot.
Ever since San Francisco drafted Lance third overall within the 2021 NFL Draft, the thought was Garoppolo would wish to seek out a recent home eventually. He’s entering the last 12 months of his contract and is owed $26.95 million.

If dealt, Garoppolo’s recent team would take a $24.2 million cap hit, ESPN reported, however the deal just isn’t fully guaranteed. In order that team could potentially work something out with him.
