When last we left our hero, he was about to have shoulder surgery to correct a torn something or other that he was playing through last season. That surgery has been completed successfully, and he is expected to start throwing again in time for training camp. The question is, whose training camp?

Saga is correct. I'm thinking the Colts take a rookie to groom and Jimmy G to start. Either there or the Steelers? We should know really soon.

Getting GSpot off the books is imperative to allowing Klynch to get involved in the pre-draft free agent market. Getting their free agents locked down will also allow them to figure out what is really needed in the draft.

Joe Staley chimes in

Same thing Grant's been saying. GSpot and his agent could be pushing the Niner's to release him via an injury settlement. The 49ers get him off the books but no trade/picks/players in return. This gives GSpot time to negotiate his own contract on his terms with who he wants.

I hope it doesn't come to this but GSpot's agent is savy as heck.

Another take.

https://www.49erswebzone.com/articles/156749-whats-holdup-trading-jimmy-garoppolo-49ers-insider-theory/

NFL teams know that the 49ers need to get below that salary-cap mark by next week. So really, there may be no rush to overspend for Garoppolo, who is probably the best-available quarterback right now. As that critical date approaches, interested NFL teams might believe San Francisco feels the pressure to move Garoppolo. It might require a little roster maneuvering or some creating contract restructures to get under the cap if they can't.

"They move Jimmy Garoppolo, and that's not an issue," The Athletic's Matt Barrows said Thursday on KNBR's Murph & Mac show. "He goes away and [frees up] $25 million in cap space. ... My point is I just wonder whether teams are using that deadline as leverage against the 49ers.

"This is maybe one of the reasons—the shoulder being another reason—to sort of drag this out and sort of get them to agree to a deal that doesn't give them quite as much compensation.

Thanks RB! Can you help get some more folks to join? Give me another 6 days to do more tweaks and then we go full bore and live on the 16th!

I think teams may be overestimating how much we really want for Jimmy. I'd be happy with a third and a family size bag of Fritos, but I'm sure the team is asking for more than that.

It’s an interesting case. The league knows the 49ers want to get rid of Jimmy. There are QB needy teams who make sense to have a guy like Garoppolo come in and start. The draft class is pretty average for QB and there isn’t much available from other teams either. Kirk Cousins could be traded and he’s better than Jimmy, but his price tag is pretty high. A guy like Matt Ryan could also be on the move as well. There is a lot that could happen, but I am curious what is the first shoe to drop.

The teams are in no hurry to sign Jimmy partly because they know he will be there if all their other options are spoken for and they know that the team will have to restructure to get under the cap by Mar 16th if they don't trade him by then. So they will just wait it out.

If he’s really trying to diminish his own trade value that’s kind of crappy.  I’m going to celebrate once he’s finally gone.  

Does anyone else feel the 49ers are the kings of the rumor world?  They’re always interested in every big name but never get any, now there’s a 2nd round pick offered for Jimmy, etc.  It’s gone on since the Harbaugh thing.  Must be Paraag leaking stuff to media types eager to maintain relevance during the off-season, no idea.

Other teams with big fan bases get the same treatment. The Cowboys especially; if somebody farts in Dallas there will be all kinds of rumors about it. Conversely, we don't hear nearly as much about the Patriots as we used to. All about the clicks and attention, so pay it no mind.

That said, right now Jimmy is holding our salary cap hostage. We're like $4.5M OVER the cap with him on our roster. We need to move him to make cap room, and everybody knows it, and that doesn't work in our favor. I guess the (sort of) good news is that if we end up having to cut him, he will only count like $1.5M in dead money, which is chump change compared to what we had to work off in the 2000s after the Donahue debacle. We'll see what happens, but right now I'm not counting on getting much (if anything) for him from anyone.

Yeah teams are just waiting for him to be released at this point.  I read somewhere that just releasing Jimmy and restructuring Ward/Armstead they could add somewhere around $40 mill in cap space.  They could conceivably be players in free agency and give Bosa/Deebo extensions with manageable cap hits this year for them both.  So it seems they’re in pretty decent shape.
