Jimmy Garoppolo was drafted as a possible heir apparent to Tom Brady. Will he get that chance eight years later?
With Tom Brady announcing his retirement, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers need a new quarterback. And with speculation heavy that the 49ers will move on from Garoppolo to hand over the offense to Trey Lance, sportsbooks have posted odds on Jimmy G’s next team.
Tampa Bay isn’t the favorite, but it’s close.
PointsBet is offering odds on the team Garoppolo will take his next snap for. That wording is important because bets won’t be paid until he takes that snap.
The 49ers are still the favorite as Garoppolo enters the final year of his five-year, $137.5-million deal.
Garoppolo quarterbacked the team to the NFC Championship in 2021, and the 49ers may feel he gives them the best chance to win at the start of the 2022 season. At +200, San Francisco is a clear favorite.
The Steelers and Washington Football Team are each +400. Pittsburgh needs to replace the retired Ben Roethlisberger, while Washington has no real answer at quarterback. But with the rest of the roster closer to playoff-caliber, someone like Garoppolo could be a steady hand to get it there.
John Elway and the Denver Broncos are seemingly on the search for a one-year quarterback every year since Peyton Manning retired. The Broncos are +600 to acquire Garoppolo.
Then there’s Tampa Bay at +700. That would be a full-circle move, as the Patriots drafted Garoppolo in the second round of the 2014 draft. After the draft, he was seen as Brady’s eventual replacement in New England. That never happened, and Garoppolo was traded to San Francisco instead.
For what it’s worth, Garoppolo and Brady share the same agent.
The Panthers, at +900, are the last team with single-digit odds that could use a starter. The rest of the options on the board would likely bring Garoppolo in as a backup quarterback, which would require an injury for him to get his shot.
