According to The Athletic, Washington commanders could “justify” the Jimmy Garoppolo trade. The scenario they describe is to send the 11th overall pick to the San Francisco 49ers for the veteran quarterback.

Garoppolo is expected to be traded this offseason. The belief is that the 49ers will hand over the offensive reins to second-year quarterback Trey Lance in 2022.

The starting quarterback for the Commanders for much of last season was Taylor Heinicke. He is 7-9 as a starter with a 7-8 record at Washington.

He started one game with the Carolina Panthers in the 2017 season.

The unnamed exec, who was quoted in the story, said he doesn’t think Garoppolo would be worth the 11th overall pick. Or a first-round pick

Garoppolo played in Kyle Shanahan’s attack which was a first attack.

Washington is expected to be one of the quarterback-needy teams looking for a flagger in the draft or free agency.

While Heinicke has a relationship with head coach Ron Rivera, watch the COs look for an alternative to compete for the starting job. He’s more of a backup than a starting quarterback.

Washington may not have the chance to acquire Garoppolo if another team can strike a deal for the quarterback now. Teams can agree to a trade now; however, it does not become official until the league’s new year in March.

Garoppolo will have several suitors after his services. The Pittsburgh Steelers and Tampa Bay Buccaneers should be among them.

If Tom Brady remains officially retired, the Buccaneers could be the favorite to trade for him. While Brady announced his retirement in an Instagram post, he’s since backed off a bit and now says never say never when making a comeback.
