San Francisco 49ers quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo will not be playing for another team in 2022. On Monday, ESPN reported that Garoppolo had agreed to a restructured one-year deal that will keep him in San Francisco. The contract reportedly includes no-trade and no-tag clauses. He will become a free agent next offseason.

According to NFL Media, Garoppolo’s new deal is worth $6.5 million that is fully guaranteed, and includes incentives that can push his money close to $16 million. With the 53-man roster deadline Tuesday, the 49ers had to make a decision on Jimmy G, and he will now return to the fold as Trey Lance’s backup.

Garoppolo’s original base salary in 2022 was $24.2 million, and likely a main reason why his trade market never materialized — especially with the quarterback undergoing offseason shoulder surgery. Just last week, 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan didn’t rule out the possibility of San Francisco keeping Jimmy G in the fold. Now, the 49ers have a very solid backup plan should something go wrong. 

This is a developing story.
