The 49ers keeping Jimmy Garoppolo is a bad idea for Trey Lance

If Jimmy Garoppolo’s new, reworked contract with the 49ers includes weeks of mandatory acting classes that could turn him into a non-threatening model of a backup quarterback, excuse us if we don’t join the chorus of praise being heaped on the 49ers. -ave for not finding. a trading partner and being too scared to cut it.

Of course, on paper, all this is controlled. The 49ers keep Garoppolo away from the Seahawks. They have a massive trade chip if a contending team loses its starter before the trade deadline. They line up for a strong compensatory return if nothing at all happens and Garoppolo leaves after the season in free agency. They also have a decent backup if Trey Lance struggles and the team is still good enough to make a deep playoff run.
