Would You Trade Deshaun Watson For Jimmy Garoppolo?
Would You Trade Deshaun Watson For Jimmy Garoppolo? | Sports Takes & News | TooAthletic.com
There’s an NFL quarterback that many around the league still have questions about. His name is Jimmy Garoppolo of the San Francisco 49ers who may, if you believe one report, is on a very unique trading block. That’s because if the rumors are true, the 49ers would only trade their quarterback for one player, who, interestingly enough, wants to be traded, but isn’t on the market, at least not yet. Nevertheless, many are curious: Would you trade Deshaun Watson if you were getting back Jimmy Garoppolo in the deal?

As discussed on Sunday night’s SportsCenter, ESPN’s Jeremy Fowler reported San Francisco is not necessarily looking to trade their QB, saying, “They believe they can win with (Garoppolo),” but added, “it would take a big swing, like a Deshaun Watson effect here, to make that change … And I’m told that the 49ers are one of the teams that Watson’s at least intrigued by.”
Watson is in a weird spot in Houston, because while he is demanding to be traded, he also has a no-trade clause in his contract; meaning that wherever he goes will be of his own choosing. Where things get complicated is that the Texans are rejecting all inquiries about what it would take to pry away their 25-year-old quarterback, in effect, not even putting him on the trade market.
Jimmy Garoppolo has done a lot of winning as a starting quarterback for San Francisco; but many feel he doesn’t contribute much to those wins. He just doesn’t do anything bad enough to force the 49ers into losing.
Still, it appears that most people are still willing to ride with Jimmy G, with only a deal for Deshaun Watson willing to bring the 49ers to the bargaining table. Leaving us where we are now, with two teams who don’t want to trade their quarterback perhaps with an easy to make deal on the table if both sides do agree to make it.
I, for one still don’t think the diva Deshaun Watson is going to be traded, nor would I want him on my team for the price it would take to trade for him. Houston, so far, is holding firm in their actions by not allowing teams to believe their quarterback is on the market, something that may or may not be upsetting Watson further.
The hesitance of both Houston and San Francisco to trade their quarterbacks should tell them both that Garoppolo and Watson are good and should be kept; but will the trade winds push these teams into a deal? For me there are too many downsides for both franchises to make a deal and fewer if they stay status quo.
So, no, I would not trade these two quarterbacks for each other, and I don’t foresee a deal coming between these teams. Then again, there is often fire when the NFL media sees smoke, so this situation bares watching between now and next month when the new league year begins, and trades can officially be made.
