- Baker Mayfield is now a member of the Carolina Panthers.
- So, this means one less suitor for San Francisco 49ers QB Jimmy Garoppolo.
- The 49ers’ QB has been getting brutally roasted since the Mayfield trade.
There you have it. Baker Mayfield is headed to the Carolina Panthers in a long-awaited trade with the Cleveland Browns.
So, what does this mean for San Francisco 49ers quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo? It means one less suitor.
Garoppolo has been a hot topic on the trade market, and the Panthers appeared to be the final viable suitor for the signal caller. Now, with Mayfield headed to Carolina, this hurts Garoppolo’s chances of going elsewhere anytime soon.
The last option looks to be the Browns, especially with a Deshaun Watson suspension likely on the way.
If Deshaun Watson is suspended for an extended period of time, the Browns should trade for Jimmy Garoppolo. No matter how you feel about Jimmy G, he is a proven winner for a roster ready to win now.

Apart from that, there aren’t any other options.

Never give up on your dreams, like getting a first-round pick for Jimmy Garoppolo.

With the Browns as the final option (or so it seems), some reactions have also come from that.

It is not a good situation for Jimmy G. At this rate, the 49ers have a couple of options: Release him or keep him around as the backup to Trey Lance. But, who knows, maybe a trade suitor pops up out of nowhere.
