The 49ers appear ready to move on from their QB, but he’s one of the most interesting players left in the playoffs and several teams should come calling after the season.

That wager was understandable—Garoppolo has proven he isn’t a top-10 quarterback—and it might pay off in huge ways. But it now seems likely that, one offseason after the 49ers decided they would move on, Garoppolo will be the most appealing quarterback on the market. A week after Jimmy Garoppolo saved the 49ers, the 49ers saved Jimmy Garoppolo. Aaron Rodgers sounds much happier in Green Bay, where he plays with arguably the best roster in the NFL, than he did last year. Saturday morning after being arrested on a felony charge for aggravated assault with a deadly weapon. The ever-calculating Rodgers has gone out of his way to praise general manager Brian Gutekunst for repairing their relationship. It was a game the 49ers had under control, or so it appeared, with a 23-7 lead with 5:50 left in the third quarter and the Cowboys getting buried against a physical opponent combined with the weight of their own mistakes. Russell Wilson might still want out of Seattle, but if the Seahawks decide they still want him (as they should), then what? Deshaun Watson is a better player than Garoppolo, but with the serious and disgusting sexual-assault allegations against him, teams should be wary of dealing for him, and it feels gross to even discuss it. Barker did not answer a call from the AP and it was not immediately clear whether he had an attorney who could comment.

Matt Ryan looks like he will get at least one more year in Atlanta. and television shots found Dallas fans actually in tears in anticipation of an inevitable defeat. Barker reportedly reversed his car “at a high rate of speed attempting to hit them, but missed” and drove away. We’ll see how it all plays out. But if Garoppolo turns out to be the best option, the 49ers should be able to get a haul for him. It was within Garoppolo’s power to put the Cowboys out of their misery. Colts general manager Chris Ballard, Browns GM Andrew Berry and Broncos GM George Paton are all smart executives with playoff-quality rosters and questions at quarterback, and they all should be looking hard at Garoppolo. Ballard can reasonably look at Garoppolo as an upgrade over Carson Wentz, who would make Indy a legit Super Bowl contender. “It was an emotional game, the highs and lows of it,” Garoppolo said. Barker led Alabama to a 35-2-1 record as starting quarterback.

Paton might take a swing at Rodgers, but if he isn’t available, Garoppolo is worth pursuing. Berry has said he will stick with Baker Mayfield, and a healthy, confident Mayfield is a viable playoff quarterback. I always felt we were in control of the game. But would you take him over Garoppolo right now? Everybody wants a quarterback the caliber of Rodgers, Tom Brady or Patrick Mahomes, but most teams can’t find one. So they either overdraft or overpay in a trade.” It’s fair to say Garoppolo may have been the only man on the 49ers sideline that wasn’t concerned. Ballard gave up at first-rounder and a third-rounder for Wentz, and at the end of the season the Colts didn’t trust him to throw a pass.

The Panthers traded second-, fourth- and sixth-round picks for Sam Darnold, despite ample evidence that he is Sam Darnold. If Garoppolo sticks the pass, it would have put the 49ers right back in scoring position with 2:31 to play in the quarter. Garoppolo is 30. He has played in a Super Bowl. By a lot. His teams have won 70% of his starts. Most of the time, he looks like a good (not great) quarterback. Dallas drove 37 yards in 11 plays for a 51-yard field goal by Greg Zuerlein to get within 23-10.

He will start another playoff game next week because he was comfortable betting on himself. This offseason, some smart general manager will probably bet on him, too. On second-and-10 from the 44, Garoppolo rolled right, spotted Trent Sherfield and instead threw it into the waiting arms of cornerback Anthony Brown. .
