Houston Texans insider John McClain recently said that he believes Jimmy Garoppolo is “not coming to Houston.” If that is real, it further limits the trade alternatives for the San Francisco 49ers quarterback.

The most logical place stays the Cleveland Browns. That is the place Pro Soccer Target reporter Doug Kyed believes Garoppolo will at some point end up. Of study course, that depends on the fate of the Browns’ freshly acquired quarterback, Deshaun Watson, who could confront league punishment. He has dealt with 24 civil lawsuits from women of all ages accusing him of sexual misconduct and sexual assault.

“Relying on what occurs with Deshaun Watson, the most logical spot for Jimmy Garoppolo could be the Cleveland Browns,” Kyed wrote. “I have composed about it right before, but if Watson is suspended a complete period, then his deal will toll, and it would grow to be at minimum more sensible for Cleveland to acquire a further quarterback who will give them a probability to be a lot more competitive than if Jacoby Brissett starts off in 2022.

“If Watson just isn’t suspended, or if the Browns never want to go as a result of the rigmarole of trading Circumstance Keenum and Baker Mayfield, signing Brissett, and buying and selling for Watson and Garoppolo in 1 offseason (easy to understand), then Garoppolo isn’t really still left with a ton of suitors.”

There has been chatter of the Seattle Seahawks remaining a prospective Garoppolo suitor. Though not unprecedented, in-division trades are rare. Some perspective it as unlikely that the 49ers would do any favors for their division rivals.

Of class, the Seahawks could just participate in the waiting around game, see if the 49ers ultimately release Garoppolo, and sign the quarterback with no acquiring to give anything at all up. On the other hand, Kyed would not look at Garoppolo as a prolonged-term option for any remaining trade possibilities, which includes Seattle.

“Devoid of significantly debate, he’d be a short-expression update in excess of scenarios in Atlanta, Detroit, Houston, Seattle, and Pittsburgh,” Kyed added. “Perhaps he’d be a far better answer in New Orleans and with the Giants, as very well. But I can not foresee most of those teams seeking to trade for Garoppolo considering that he’d supply only a slight enhance, and numerous of individuals businesses already designed moves at quarterback this offseason.

“The Seahawks make feeling if the 49ers are compelled to launch Garoppolo. But if I am San Francisco, I might hold out to make that go as late in the summer time as doable just in scenario a little something comes about to Trey Lance.”
