The San Francisco 49ers and quarterback, Jimmy Garoppolo, have agreed to a new contract to keep the former starter in San Francisco for the 2022-23 season. Garoppolo had shoulder surgery during the offseason and the 49ers drafted Trey Lance in the first round of the draft a season ago. So Garoppolo was never going to be the starter, but the 49ers were actively trying to trade the quarterback.
With Garoppolo staying with the 49ers, it looks like Seahawks and other teams will not be acquiring Garoppolo. The new deal is worth $6.5 million in base, fully guaranteed. He also has playtime bonuses that can boost it another nearly $9M. It also contains a no trade clause to guarantee that Garoppolo will be with the 49ers the entire season.
