Could Jimmy Garoppolo End Up With The Rams?


As the 49ers and quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo continue to wait for a starting quarterback to sustain a season injury, a team in the same division has an injury that could limit, if not end, its season.

And so the question that has popped up in recent days. Could Garoppolo end up with the Rams?

The question has become more pertinent as more information has emerged about starting quarterback Matthew Stafford’s elbow. Reportedly a case of “bad tendinitis,” it’s a baseball problem — and the Rams seem confused by the situation.

It would be inconvenient for the 49ers to trade him for the Rams to say the least. The more likely scenario would involve the 49ers releasing Garoppolo before week one, making him a free agent who can sign with any team. Then the Rams could try to court him as the insurance policy for Stafford.

Would they do it? The alternative is John Wolford, so why wouldn’t they?

Obviously, the 49ers will indeed cut Garoppolo before week one, because if they don’t, his $24.2 million base salary will be fully guaranteed. The 49ers would rather trade him, and Garoppolo would rather land with a team in dire need of a quarterback. That way, he would be much more likely to get something closer to what he should be earning this year.

But if there is no opening for a trade, the Rams may be suitable. The Seahawks can be too. It would be strange to say the least if a few of the division’s rivals ended up in a tug-of-war for Garoppolo.
