There isn’t any indication the 49ers are actively seeking to transfer on from quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo.
Coach Kyle Shanahan and normal supervisor John Lynch have mentioned they anticipate Garoppolo to return because the crew’s starter for the 2021 season.
At this level, there is no such thing as a purpose to doubt them.
There can also be each purpose to imagine the one crew for which Garoppolo needs to play — above all else — is the 49ers.
Garoppolo is widespread amongst his teammates. He has supporting solid. He is in a quarterback-friendly system. And in his one full season, he was the quarterback of a Super Bowl crew.
Oh, yeah, he’s additionally well-paid.
There is completely no purpose for him to suppose he may discover a higher state of affairs exterior of Santa Clara, exterior of Shanahan’s offense.
Why would he try this? He’s well-paid and in a great spot. He has each purpose to wish to keep. (But since we’re taking part in the hypothetical recreation, I believe it will be tough to commerce him this offseason.)— Matt Maiocco (@MaioccoNBCS) February 21, 2021
Garoppolo won’t be a cut price at his scheduled pay of $25.5 million (wage and bonuses) for the upcoming season, however the 49ers don’t imagine he’s overpaid, both.
“That’s how a lot they value,” Shanahan mentioned on Dec. 28, referring to beginning quarterbacks.
Still, it’s tough to think about Garoppolo receiving a two-year, $51.1 million deal — the precise cash remaining on his 49ers contract — proper now if he have been all of the sudden a free agent.
The truth is Garoppolo’s standing with the 49ers for this season will stay ripe for hypothesis till the membership restructures his contract. When that point comes, the 49ers may be anticipated to interchange his scheduled wage with an up-front signing bonus to create important salary-cap area for this offseason.
Until then, although, there will probably be dialogue about whether or not the 49ers would possibly look to amass Deshaun Watson or Kirk Cousins — or another person — and commerce Garoppolo.

Garoppolo has a no-trade clause in his contract. If it ever got here to that, Garoppolo may veto any deal to anywhere he considers an undesirable state of affairs.
But exercising his no-trade clause on this hypothetical state of affairs would additionally imply he can be ready to tear up the ultimate two years and $51.1 million on his contract and run the danger of accepting a large pay reduce.
Yes, Jimmy Garoppolo has a no-trade clause. He can also be due $25.5 million in wage and bonuses. I imagine he’ll be the #49ers starter this season. BUT…if there have been a commerce risk, he would nearly definitely waive the clause. Otherwise, he wouldn’t get that form of cash. https://t.co/KC9JjmYwcw— Matt Maiocco (@MaioccoNBCS) February 21, 2021
Any crew that trades for him would inherit his contract with the 49ers, and he can be all however assured of incomes roughly $25 million this season. As a free agent, assuming the 49ers have already got a brand new quarterback and launch him, he most likely wouldn’t get a deal that beneficiant.
Things can change, after all, however proper now the probably state of affairs is that Jimmy Garoppolo goes nowhere and he earns that cash with the 49ers.
