Had it not been for an unexpected improvement, Jimmy Garoppolo most likely wouldn’t beheading into Week 3.
And no, we’re not solely speaking about Trey Lance’s.
Garoppolo beginning the NFL season on the Niners’ roster was a shock to most within the first place. As soon as it turned clear that San Francisco was handing the keys of the offense over to Lance, an offseason Garoppolo commerce felt inevitable. In truth, the 49ers reportedly had been satisfied Garoppolo was on his means out and so they even hadin thoughts.
“In accordance with a number of league sources, the Niners believed a type of groups — the Washington Commanders — was poised to turn out to be Garoppolo’s subsequent NFL house,” ESPN’s Tim Keown and Nick Wagoner wrote in a column revealed Monday. “However that plan was scuttled quickly after; Garoppolo’s shoulder wasn’t therapeutic as he and his medical workforce hoped. After additional session with docs, Garoppolo and his representatives opted for surgical procedure that set the start of coaching camp as a goal date for a full restoration. By March 1, the plan turned public information, and eight days later the Commanders moved on, buying and selling for Indianapolis quarterback Carson Wentz.”
The Commanders will obtain a glimpse at what might have been Christmas Eve once they journey to San Francisco to battle Garoppolo and the 49ers in a Week 16 matchup.
