Jimmy Garoppolo’s tenure in San Francisco keeps sounding weirder and weirder the more we learn about it. Last week, it was revealed that after signing his five-year, $137.5 million contract extension with the 49ers in 2018, he ghosted the team, going for weeks without returning calls or texts. On Wednesday, Chris Simms of Pro Football Talk took it a step further, alleging that Garoppolo often goes completely off the grid and becomes impossible to track down. “I’ve heard this from players, ex-coaches there,” Simms said. “He goes off radar all the time.

And while that's not enough for me to choose him over Jalen Hurts (that's a different article), it was enough to move him up into the top 10 in my most recent Dynasty quarterbacks rankings.
