San Francisco 49ers quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo has revealed that he has talked a couple of times to Aaron Rodgers and he might turn to the Green Bay Packers quarterback to ask him how to handle an uncertain future.
In the 2020 draft, the Packers moved up to select quarterback Jordan Love — a decision that didn’t sit well with Rodgers.
Rodgers, 37, responded by winning the NFL MVP award last year.
In this year’s NFL draft, the Niners moved up to select quarterback Trey Lance, putting Garoppolo on the clock.
Garoppolo is still the Niners’ starting quarterback but his future with the team is uncertain since he is likely to be replaced by Lance as the season progresses.
“Yeah, there’s a good possibility,” Garoppolo said of contacting Rodgers. “I know Aaron pretty well. We’ve talked a couple of times on the field, off the field. Whatever little piece of advice he could give to me. . . . Obviously, it’s worked out pretty well for him. The guy’s been ballin’. He had four TDs [last] night.
“This league’s a crazy thing. We’ve all got our own story and just got to make the best of your situation.”
