REPORT: Many Players On The 49ers ‘Prefer’ Jimmy Garoppolo To Start Over Trey Lance

The San Francisco 49ers might be ready to move on from Jimmy Garoppolo, but it looks like a bunch of players on the team wants him to stay.

Jimmy G is no closer to being traded now than he was at the start of the offseason. Just days ago, the 49ers gave Jimmy Garoppolo‘s agents permission to seek a trade.

However, according to a report, many current 49ers players prefer Garoppolo to start over Lance.

The 49ers granted permission for Jimmy G to seek a trade.


ESPN’s Jeremy Fowler reported last week that the Seahawks have had internal discussions about the possibility of trading for Garoppolo, but nothing has materialized as of yet.

In 2021, Garoppolo appeared in 15 games for the 49ers and completed 68.3 percent of his passes for 3,810 yards, 20 touchdowns, and 12 interceptions. He also rushed for 51 yards and three touchdowns.
