49ers CEO Makes Bold Claim About Jimmy Garoppolo’s Future With The Team

The San Francisco 49ers want fans to believe the team is fine with keeping Jimmy Garoppolo on the roster.

Ever since the 49ers named Trey Lance QB1, the wheels have been turning to find a trade partner for Jimmy G.

The veteran quarterback is slated to make $24.2 million for the 2022 campaign, and while everyone agrees that’s an outrageous number for a backup QB, CEO Jed York wants people to think he’s fine paying it.

“I watched it with Joe (Montana) and Steve (Young) and I realize the salary cap is different today than having no salary cap. But we’ve said it before: We’re happy to keep Jimmy. We’re happy to have him on the roster. And if that’s the case, then that’s the case,” York explained to The Athletic.

There is simply no way the 49ers can afford to be paying a backup QB $24.2 million. It’s just not possible.

It would cripple the team’s ability to make other moves. Paying a backup QB a few million dollars and hoping he’s nothing more than an unnecessary insurance policy makes sense.

As a betting man, I’d bet the 49ers will move mountains to try to find a trade partner as soon as possible.


As speculated Friday on OutKick, the Browns could be a possible landing spot.

With Watson out for 11 games after several allegations of sexual misconduct, Cleveland could snag Jimmy G as a bridge Q until the suspension is over.

No matter what happens, nobody believes the 49ers are actually OK paying a man $24.2 million to hold a clipboard.
