The Niners have essentially admitted that they are going to be selecting a quarterback in 2021, and this likely leaves Garoppolo as the odd man out in San Francisco, leaving many to wonder where he will go next.
New England Patriots
I’m going to get the classic cliche answer out of the way right now. There is no way that a head coach as talented as Bill Bellichick is going to let Cam Newton be the long term option for New England, which leaves an obvious hole at the quarterback position. The Patriots could definitely be in the market to seek a reunion with young Garoppolo who once upon a time was going to be the successor to Tom Brady.
This is one that I could see happening after the draft in some form. I don’t think that NFL fans truly grasp how incredibly awful Kirk Cousins was in the 2020 season, but I think and hope that the Vikings do. This is very unlikely to go down, but if it does I think we could be seeing Garoppolo as the starter in Minnesota, and Cousins as a backup in San Francisco.
I believe that Carolina will not select a quarterback in the draft which means that they have something to address in the offseason unless they plan to ride with Bridgewater. Garoppolo to the Panthers seems like a solid fit, especially if the Panthers are looking to find a bridge quarterback while they search for a long term option.
This is less about upgrading from Lock and more about putting pressure on him, it is undeniable that Lock was bad but the Broncos’ collapse was even bigger than him. This move would make sense on multiple levels, and I believe it is likely that the Broncos would do it.
