Houston Texans insider John McClain recently stated that he believes Jimmy Garoppolo is “not coming to Houston.” If that is true, it further limits the trade options for the San Francisco 49ers quarterback.
The most logical destination remains the Cleveland Browns. That’s where Pro Football Focus reporter Doug Kyed believes Garoppolo will eventually end up. Of course, that depends on the fate of the Browns’ newly acquired quarterback, Deshaun Watson, who could face league punishment. He has dealt with 24 civil lawsuits from women accusing him of sexual misconduct and sexual assault.
“Depending on what happens with Deshaun Watson, the most logical destination for Jimmy Garoppolo could be the Cleveland Browns,” Kyed wrote. “I’ve written about it before, but if Watson is suspended a full season, then his contract will toll, and it would become at least more reasonable for Cleveland to acquire another quarterback who will give them a chance to be more competitive than if Jacoby Brissett starts in 2022.
“If Watson isn’t suspended, or if the Browns don’t want to go through the rigmarole of trading Case Keenum and Baker Mayfield, signing Brissett, and trading for Watson and Garoppolo in one offseason (understandable), then Garoppolo isn’t left with a ton of suitors.”
There has been chatter of the Seattle Seahawks being a potential Garoppolo suitor. While not unprecedented, in-division trades are rare. Some view it as unlikely that the 49ers would do any favors for their division rivals.
Of course, the Seahawks could just play the waiting game, see if the 49ers eventually release Garoppolo, and sign the quarterback without having to give anything up. However, Kyed doesn’t view Garoppolo as a long-term solution for any remaining trade options, including Seattle.
“Without much debate, he’d be a short-term upgrade over situations in Atlanta, Detroit, Houston, Seattle, and Pittsburgh,” Kyed added. “Maybe he’d be a better solution in New Orleans and with the Giants, as well. But I can’t foresee most of those teams wanting to trade for Garoppolo since he’d provide only a slight upgrade, and many of those organizations already made moves at quarterback this offseason.
“The Seahawks make sense if the 49ers are forced to release Garoppolo. But if I’m San Francisco, I’d wait to make that move as late in the summer as possible just in case something happens to Trey Lance.”

NFL reporter on 49ers QB Jimmy Garoppolo to Bucs: ‘Not a chance’
On Friday, former NFL defensive tackle Dan Sileo reported that the Tampa Bay Buccaneers were among the teams that had reached out to the San Francisco 49ers about Jimmy Garoppolo. Sileo said he spoke with Buccaneers general manager Jason Licht, who was interested in Garoppolo to serve as the heir apparent for Tom Brady. The future Hall of Famer could be entering his final NFL season (Of course, we seem to say that every year).
Said Sileo: “What I’m hearing is this: The Buccaneers have reached out to the 49ers to try to bring Garoppolo down to be the heir apparent for Brady when he calls it a career at the end of the year. Both guys are represented by Don
NFL reporter discusses reports of 49ers QB Trey Lance’s “arm fatigue”
By Rohan Chakravarthi
On an episode of The Colin Cowherd Podcast, hosts Colin Cowherd and Mike Silver discussed San Francisco 49ers quarterback Trey Lance and the issues they’ve heard surrounding the second-year player ahead of the 2022 NFL season.
Cowherd reported on Lance’s arm fatigue and issues with recovery, to which Silver acknowledged he heard the same reports.
“[Lance’s] delivery, [the 49ers] are kind of rebuilding it,” Cowherd said to Silver. “He gets arm fatigue. It’s not an easy throw. He needs days off, and they’re worried about his accuracy.”
Of course, many of the arm concerns were from Lance’s rookie season, much of which he spent injured. However, all reports from this offseason have indicated that the 22-year-old quarterback looks much improved.
Will Deebo Samuel report to 49ers training camp? NFL reporter weighs in
The San Francisco 49ers and wide receiver Deebo Samuel have some work to do in the coming weeks, hopefully resolving their dispute before training camp kicks off on July 26. ESPN’s Jeff Darlington reportedly stated on SportsCenter that Samuel is “not that happy” with the current situation and is likely to stay away from the team unless the 49ers offer him an agreeable contract extension.
This offseason, Samuel watched as other wideouts earned big paydays. The 49ers star had a breakout 2021 campaign, amassing 1,770 all-purpose yards and 14 total touchdowns while showing off his versatility as a pass-catcher and ball-carrier.
“He did show up to mandatory minicamp,” Darlington said on SportsCenter,
