Jimmy Garoppolo is expected to be traded at some point this offseason, However, when the trade will go down and to which team has been slow-moving and murky thus far.

Jimmy Garoppolo Trade

The main reason things are being held up, according to recent reports: Deshaun Watson. The Texans quarterback who hasn't played in a year is once again the No. 1 quarterback on the market and has been meeting with QB-needy teams this week.

With the Saints, Panthers, Browns and Falcons all being connected to a potential Watson trade, this is leaving Garoppolo out in the cold so to speak, or at least on the waiting list behind Watson.

Jimmy Garoppolo Colts Trade

So far, the Indianapolis Colts are the only team that has drawn real interest for a potential Garoppolo trade. While Indy seems like a logical fit, you would imagine the 49ers are hoping to get other teams involved and create some sort of bidding war.

After trading a second-round pick for Garoppolo to the New England Patriots, San Francisco will be hoping to get at minimum that in return when it deals the 30-year old quarterback.

Still, none of this seems like it will progress until Watson finds his new home.
