Listen: San Francisco, Jimmy Garoppolo And Jimmy G. discussed on The Herd with Colin Cowherd
"That oh my gosh what if it doesn't work san francisco's a great example of spot a a quarterback you like pam early because even if jimmy g. got hurt in week twelve. Let's say gets hurt again. By the way i'm showing you. Video always got brace. You do realize now right. They can get rid of him and they only have a four million dollar dead money cap it next year because they spotted him early and they paid it. This is the opposite of the cowboys who waited waited and waited and waited part of being an n._f._l. G._m. is spotting talent allen and saying okay. Let's at the quarterback position. At least let's get paid a prime example there. Is this feeling that san francisco all my lord. They are are in crisis if they're only paying him twenty seven and a half million dollars now. Isn't that funny how two years after the contract you're like god if he goes nine in seven ten and six. You almost feel like you're getting a bargain.

This is why you have scouts and make it a termination by the way san francisco made a determination on this kid when they made the deal for a second round pick. They knew at that point. They've done their homework. We just wanna see the guy get some reps in our offense he did boom pam and we're all like whoa whoa whoa whoa whoa it's twenty seven and a half million only one more year. I mean if he was. Let's there's three great quarterbacks in college next year so if garoppolo got hurt early this year you're a top your bottom five team in the league the way you're you're going to get one of the quarterbacks so don't think san francisco's precarious spot. I don't i think cross your fingers. He's healthy and it works out but i think when you pay quarterbacks early garoppolo you wake up about two years later and you're like you know what the"
