Jimmy Garoppolo's time with the San Francisco 49ers feels like it's on borrowed time. Once expected to be the franchise quarterback for the team, Garoppolo simply hasn't lived up to expectations. While he helped lead the team to the Super Bowl in 2019, injuries have ruined his experience in the Bay Area.
Now, the major expectation is that he'll either get traded or released sometime this week. General managers around the NFL know about this.
When San Francisco traded up for the No. 3 overall pick, the writing was on the wall for Jimmy G. The 49ers are all set to select either Mac Jones or Trey Lance with that selection. One of those guys will be the QB of the future and not Garoppolo.
