Garoppolos awkward answer on 49ers QB management after Lance trade

Aug 29, 2023

Jimmy Garoppolo's time with the 49ers was filled with ups and downs, best summarized by a tendency for injuries and one heartbreaking Super Bowl loss.

And while there were plenty of wins along the way, it wasn't always smooth sailing between the quarterback and the team -- from Garoppolo practicing on a side field last summer as he awaited a trade that never came to his final weeks with the team reportedly ending on a sour note.

Now that the 49ers also have moved on from Garoppolo's former heir apparent Trey Lance, the No. 3 overall pick of the 2021 NFL Draft, the new Las Vegas Raiders signal-caller provided a spicy take on his interesting tenure with San Francisco -- sort of.

"Weird situation," Garoppolo told Sports Illustrated's Robin Lundberg of the 49ers trading Lance to the Dallas Cowboys, before possibly alluding to his own years in the Bay. "Been a lot of weird situations over there in San Francisco, just leave it at that.

"But, you know, I'm happy Trey got another shot, man."
