According to Jeff Howe of The Athletic, the Houston Texans and the Carolina Panthers may consider a move to the quarterback. Jimmy Garoppolo Or Baker Mayfield.

“The Panthers and Seahawks have been in the mix at the veteran quarterback market all season,” Howe wrote. Texans are likely to explore their options with Garoppolo and MayfieldAccording to the source. Of course, it all still depends on the rest of the draft.”

The Panthers did not draft their quarterback in the first round and do not currently have a day two selection. The Texans have shipped Deshaun Watson to the Cleveland Browns and Davis Mills is currently named their best quarterback. Panthers have Sam Darnold. Garoppolo will likely be an upgrade on both.

Pro Football Network’s Tony Bolin reports that 49 players are seeking a second-round pick for the veteran quarterback. While this would eliminate the Panthers in this draft (the 2023 pick remains an option), Texas has a second-round pick. It’s a high number, though, at 37th overall. They also own two third rounds (Nos 68 and 80).

Garoppolo had shoulder surgery on March 8 and is not expected to start shooting again until the end of June, at the earliest. This has reduced the value of foreign trade. Although a dry quarterback and a disappointing rookie quarterback might prompt a team – like the Texans or the Panthers – to risk or hope the 49ers’ asking price drops to a third-day pick.

“[The Panthers] He could try Mayfield or Garoppolo for a season before turning the focus on Bryce Young or another possibility in 2023,” Howe wrote. Mayfield and Garoppolo may not turn the Panthers into contenders but they would be a promotion, and they also gave coach Matt Rolle a better chance to prove himself after two rocky seasons.”

Or maybe everyone is waiting to see if the 49ers finally cut Garoppolo before the start of the season.

Jimmy Garoppolo to stay off 49ers as he continues shoulder rehabilitation

As expected, Jimmy Garoppolo will stay away from the San Francisco 49ers as he continues to rehabilitate his shoulder. Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network has confirmed that the quarterback will remain off-site, as per his surgeon’s instructions.

The 49ers are said to have offered this deal to Deebo Samuel, and the two sides are still far apart

The San Francisco 49ers and wide receiver Deebo Samuel appear to be far apart in contract negotiations. Probably over 6 million dollars a year separately. Pro Football Network’s Tony Bolin reports that Samuel is seeking an annual salary in the range of $25 million. That wouldn’t make him the highest-paid in the league – Tyreek Hill’s $30 million a year – but it could lead him into the top four. That doesn’t seem unreasonable given what Samuel intended for the 49ers last season, producing 1,770 multi-purpose yards and 14 total touchdowns. However, this was just one season and his first season to exceed 1,000 yards. This may be the San Francisco argument. The team is said to offer far less than Samuel asks

49ers exercise DE Nick Bosa option for fifth year

As expected, the San Francisco 49ers decided to exercise the fifth-year option for defensive end Nick Bosa, officially keeping passes with the team until the 2023 season. General Manager John Lynch revealed the news during his introductory press conference. Lynch added that Bossa is not with the team at the moment, opting instead to continue training in Florida with his brother Joey Bossa of the Los Angeles Chargers. His absence has nothing to do with the possibility of extending the contract. The 49ers think they can get a long-term deal. “The fifth-year option just means in 2023, we’ve done that,” Lynch said. “We can work on an extension at any time. And we’ve been in really good contact with Nick’s representative Brian Ayrault. And in a timely manner.

“I can never imagine wanting to move on from Debo… He’s a very good player,” general manager John Lynch said on Monday before finally adding. We can’t envision a scenario where we would.” While this adequately expresses the San Francisco 49ers’ desire to hold on to Deebo Samuel, it’s hardly a certainty that the team won’t eventually be pushed into trading the dynamic wide receiver.
