The San Francisco 49ers had a renaissance of sorts this season. They started off looking like a team destined for a Top 2-3 pick, only to see their fortunes change after they traded for quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo. General manager, John Lynch, seems to have stolen Jimmy-G and set up his franchise for big success, as the ‘Niners went on a tear late in the season.
With Garoppolo under center, the 49’ers can concentrate on getting him some weapons and improving the protection for their franchise quarterback.They need receivers and possibly a running back, depending on pending free agent, Carlos Hyde.
Garoppolo is a free agent that will demand a big contract, like Matt Stafford, Derek Carr money. Jimmy may set a new record with his contract even though he has less than ten starts in his career.
Given what I previously said about the wide receivers, not that I’m immune from contradicting myself, I believe that Stanford-educated GM, John Lynch, knows where his money is best spent. Keep your best player upright.
