Jimmy Garoppolo's time with the San Francisco 49ers seemed to be winding down this offseason with trade rumors swirling. The team's blockbuster move up to No. 3 in the draft last week made it clear that the team is looking to nab a talented young player to be their new franchise QB, making Jimmy G expendable.

What San Francisco is hoping to receive in a Garoppolo trade has been revealed.

The 49ers are seeking a first-round pick for Jimmy G, according to NFL Network's Michael Giardi. The NFL insider brought up that asking price while discussing the New England Patriots' pursuits of a new quarterback. However, Giardi cautioned that a first-rounder might be too rich for Garoppolo's former team.

San Francisco clearly wants top value for their QB. When healthy he could certainly fetch that under the right market. Not only is Garoppolo coming off of playing in just six games during the 2020 season, many QB-needy teams have also solved their question under center this offseason via trade and free agency.

Most franchises looking for a new signal-caller have found their solutions or will find theirs in the draft. That leaves New England as one of the few suitors that makes sense, but if they're balking at the asking price, it's hard to see another team being desperate enough to meet the 49ers' demands.
