While the San Francisco 49ers have yet to trade Jimmy Garoppolo, the team doesn't envision a scenario where he is cut.

"I don't foresee that," John Lynch said. "He's too good a player. I think Jimmy will be playing for us or will be playing for someone else. He's too good of a player not to be."

According to Lynch, the biggest reason Garoppolo has yet to be traded is simple: The Niners have not received a formal offer. 

While other quarterbacks began to move in trades and signings around the league, Lynch said Garoppolo's right shoulder surgery is what caused interested teams to put pursuit of him on hold.

"I think, ultimately, the teams that we were closest with, the surgery gave them pause and they ended up going in other directions," Lynch said.
