Jimmy Garoppolo will be expensive, but 49ers have the cap space

Jimmy Garoppolo will be expensive, but 49ers have the cap space

The New England Patriots traded Jimmy Garoppolo to the San Francisco 49ers on Monday. But to hear Belichick be so candid about that, and tell reporters he tried everything he could to avoid the inevitable situation that took place when the Niners offered a 2018 high second-round pick for the QB, was surprising to hear from the normally stoic coach nonetheless.

With no viable option to replace Cousins, it's hard to imagine the Redskins allowing him to walk via free agency, but somehow they've managed to allow it to get this far, which never should have happened in the first place. Garoppolo sprained his shoulder in the second game, but finished 42-of-59 passing with four touchdowns and no interceptions in the two wins. The trade came as a surprise as the Patriots reportedly viewed Garoppolo as their future franchise quarterback.

If Belichick does end his coaching career in a few years, it would resemble Tom Brady's timeline. Is this a smart move to make with a 40-year-old quarterback? But the Patriots have shown [that they can compete with any quarterback], just like a year ago when Tom Brady was suspended for four games. They had hoped to keep him. I look at him as an experienced quarterback that's going to work out well for the 49ers. I'm sure they have a quarterback in mind who they're going to bring in to back up Tom Brady, and the transition is going to be pretty easy. I'm sure they thought about this even before the draft a year ago. But I really don't think they use the franchise tag on him. To pay a couple million to a guy like Hoyer to hold a clipboard, I think that's fine.[But] the best quarterback out there is a guy that no one wants to talk about.Colin Kaepernick. The totality is, what, two starts? It's not something I try to do a lot of. A guy like Nomar [Garciaparra] did so much here and was a fan favorite. But, in terms of news, sure. Garoppolo just didn't want to wait that long.

Dan Shaughnessy: In terms of drama, back-and-forth memorable games, already two of the top ten games of the modern era have been played in this thing.We have one or two more to go but I believe it's gonna be in the top-5 [World Series of all-time] no matter where it lands.
