One surprise NFL team was ready to sign Jimmy Garoppolo if 49ers had decided to release him, per report

If the 49ers had actually decided to release Jimmy Garoppolo this offseason, he would not have actually been a totally free representative for long which’s due to the fact that it appears that a person of San Francisco’s NFC West competitors was all set to catch the quarterback. 

Although the Seahawks was among the groups that was continuously pointed out as a possible landing area for Garoppolo, it ends up there was a surprise group all set to get him, which group was the Los Angeles Rams. According to ESPN, Garoppolo and the Rams “had the makings of a deal” in location on the occasion that the quarterback had actually appeared. However, the offer never ever occurred due to the fact that Garoppolo wound up signing a modified agreement with the 49ers that will keep him in San Francisco through completion of the 2022 season.  

The reality the Rams were all set to include Garoppolo might suggest that they’re more worried about Matthew Stafford’s elbow than they have actually let on. The Rams quarterback has actually been handling a bothersome injury for the majority of the offseason, and things got so bad that he had a ‘treatment’ on the elbow previously this year

Back in early August, Rams coach Sean McVay did appear a little worried about the “abnormal” nature of the injury. 

“It is a tricky deal and you want to make sure that you’re getting with the right people that are experts in this field,” McVay stated on Aug. 4. “It’s a little bit abnormal for a quarterback — some of this stuff is things that MLB pitchers deal with — so it is something that we’re kind of learning about on the fly and his feedback.”

Stafford wound up tossing 41 passes throughout the Rams’ 31-10 season-opening loss to the Bills on Thursday night, and after the video game, McVay didn’t utilize the words “good” or “great” when he was asked how Stafford’s elbow felt. 

“It felt OK,” McVay stated. “There was a lot of things that didn’t go our way yesterday for a lot of different reasons, like I mentioned to you guys after the game. But he came out of that thing feeling good. He took obviously some shots, but the elbow felt OK.”

OK is great in the meantime, however the Rams might be in difficulty if Stafford’s elbow weakens throughout the season. 

As for Garoppolo, he wound up remaining in San Francisco and it appears that he is more than pleased with his choice. 

“Seeing the other opportunities that were out there and you weigh in the pros and cons of everything,” Garoppolo stated on Sept. 1, by means of ESPN. “Trust me, there was a lot of back and forth going on just with other teams and what I wanted my future to look like. And so, this is what I wanted.”

Although Garoppolo has a brand-new offer with the 49ers, he might still be dealt to another group eventually prior to the Nov. 1 trade due date. However, his brand-new agreement does consist of a no-trade stipulation, which suggests if the 49ers wish to deal him away, they’ll need to send him to a group that he in fact wishes to bet because he would need to approve any possible trade.
