Jimmy Garoppolo expected to be kept until cut-down day

According to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network, there are no clear trade partners for QB Jimmy Garoppolo as he continues to rehab his injury. The San Francisco 49ers are expected to keep Garoppolo as long as possible until necessary, even potentially until final cuts at the end of August. (Ian Rapoport on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact:

Garoppolo's days in San Francisco are clearly over, but with questions surrounding his health, as well as his cap hit and the capital required for a trade, there aren't any clear partners. That doesn't mean there's a lack of interest, though. Mike Florio of ProFootballTalk mentioned the Los Angeles Rams may be interested if Garoppolo were cut, as Stafford is dealing with an injury of his own that may linger into the start of the season. NFL rosters have to be cut down to 53 by the end of August, and it's possible we don't see anything happen with Garoppolo, outside of speculation, until then.
