It’s been a loopy week within the NFL, and the league’s new 12 months doesn’t formally begin till March 16. Earlier this week, Russell Wilson was traded to Denver, Carson Wentz was shipped out — for the second consecutive offseason — to Washington, and Aaron Rodgers, who at all times retains us guessing, determined to remain in Inexperienced Bay for a whopping $200 million. And in any case that, we’re nonetheless ready for the 49ers to ship quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo packing.

When San Francisco moved up in final 12 months’s draft to pick out Trey Lance third total, everybody anticipated Garoppolo could be out of city on the following factor smokin’. It nonetheless looks as if we’re fairly a methods out from listening to any official announcement on the way forward for Jimmy G. Now, there’s hypothesis about what may very well be occurring contained in the Niners franchise relating to a Garoppolo commerce.

The Niners are about $4.5 million over the wage cap at the moment, and groups which are all for Garoppolo are conscious of this and could be waiting until the 49ers get determined if they will’t get underneath the cap earlier than subsequent Wednesday’s deadline. So, any staff all for Jimmy G doesn’t essentially have to be in a rush, figuring out the Niners might want to determine one thing out quickly.

One other challenge for the Niners in buying and selling Jimmy G is the shoulder surgery he underwent Tuesday.

This surgical procedure is probably going going to have an effect on not solely the timeframe by which they’re in a position to commerce Garoppolo however might additionally make groups really feel inclined to supply much less for him. Because the Packers had been asserting the Rodgers extension and Russell Wilson was saying his goodbyes in Seattle, Garoppolo went underneath the knife. That could be a extra vital challenge for groups all for Jimmy G as there isn’t any clear indication if he’ll be able to throw by the point coaching camps begin up in the summertime.

After all, the 49ers even have the choice of preserving Garoppolo for yet one more 12 months. Earlier than the shoulder damage he suffered within the NFC championship sport in opposition to the Rams, I might have mentioned this was lower than more likely to occur. However now all bets are off. It actually is dependent upon Garoppolo’s rehab and restoration from the surgical procedure. If a commerce does occur for Jimmy G, it most likely gained’t be till round June at this level. He’ll be a lot additional alongside in his rehab, and groups will have the ability to

consider the place he’s at when it comes to his restoration.

So, for now, every thing appears to be in a holding sample, together with Lance, who nonetheless has no concept when he’s going to take over management of the offense. If the Niners preserve Garoppolo, they’ll need to additionally juggle another gamers’ contracts round to get underneath the cap. And that additionally signifies that Lance will probably be sitting for an additional 12 months behind Jimmy G. It seems to be like this damage has thrown a wrench into a few of San Francisco’s offseason plans.
