The Miami Dolphins were in the mix to trade for Jimmy Garoppolo this past offseason, the quarterback says.

"They were in the conversation," Garoppolo said. "Not much came from it, but they were definitely one of the teams in the conversation. It seemed like a good spot. As an offense, that's tremendous skillplayers, everything they got going over there. Mike {McDaniel] being a great coach, I had been with him in the past here and it was discussed, but I'm glad the way things worked out."

Garoppolo remained with the San Francisco 49ers after offseason shoulder surgery and regained his starting role when Trey Lance suffered a season-ending injury.
