The days before the NFL Draft are always crazy. Teams try to trade up or down, players get moved, and it seems like there's always a shocking news just around the corner, and this time isn't the exception to that rule.
One of the players that's drawing more attention lately is veteran quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo, as the San Francisco 49ers are believed to be interested in taking Alabama stud Mac Jones with the third overall pick.
And, even though Garoppolo has struggled to stay healthy over the past couple of years, he's done just enough to prove that he can lead an offense to the postseason when he's been fully healthy.
49ers Are Getting Calls For Jimmy Garoppolo
So, according to Tom Pelissero of NFL.com and Adam Schefter of ESPN, the San Francisco 49ers are actually getting a lot of calls from multiple teams interested in trading for the quarterback:
"Expect multiple teams to inquire today about a potential deal for #49ers QB Jimmy Garoppolo, who has some control over fate via his no-trade clause. No talks on a restructured contract elsewhere yet," Pelissero reported.
"Multiple teams are expected to contact the 49ers today to inquire about the availability of QB Jimmy Garoppolo, per sources. But as of early this morning, the chances of him being traded are, in the words of one source, “remote.” Let’s see if anything changes in next 72 hours," added Schefter.
Patriots Could Trade For Garoppolo
Moreover, it seems like the New England Patriots are once again interested in a Belichick - Garoppolo reunion, as they're reportedly working on a new contract to facilitate a potential trade:
"What I’ve been told, by a reliable source —- @Patriots are working on a new contract for Jimmy G that could lead to a deal with @49ers. Same source who correctly told me Tom Brady had signed with @Buccaneers. Doesn’t mean it will get done, but they’re working on it," reported Dale Arnold.
Needless to say, it seems unilkely that Jimmy Garoppolo will stay with the San Francisco 49ers beyond the NFL Draft, so we'll have to keep an eye on this story over the next couple of hours.
