In 2018, Garoppolo played in three games – one of them a loss to the Vikings in Week 1. Then during 2020, he partook in six games. He is not a bastion of health, and the 49ers are losing patience.
Teddy Bridgewater could be traded by the Panthers, and the 49ers called about his availability according to the Athletic.
But ESPN’s senior draft analyst, Mel Kiper Jr., is certain the Panthers would select a quarterback if they aren’t able to get Houston’s Deshaun Watson in a trade. They are either going to move up to get Zach Wilson (or) Justin Fields, (or) Mac Jones if they sit at eight, Trey Lance,” Kiper said in conference call with reporters Monday. They are going to get somebody of those four if they don’t get Deshaun Watson.
