Last week, the San Francisco 49ers pulled off a blockbuster trade with the Miami Dolphins to land the No. 3 overall pick in the NFL Draft. As soon as that deal went down, the Jimmy Garoppolo trade rumors started flying all over the place.
However, it doesn't look like the man known as Jimmy G will be going anywhere. At least not yet. That's because general manager John Lynch said Garoppolo is his starter for 2021.
"We felt like we had a team that can compete," Lynch said on Monday. "We went to ownership, said 'hey things are looking good, we want to make this (trade), but we don't want to say good bye to Jimmy.'"
So there you have it. While Garoppolo has had his struggles with the team, including injuries, he'll be back next fall. Remember, he helped power the team to the Super Bowl in 2019. We'll see how he can do come 2021.
