One AFC team that had been linked to the quarterback in the past is now said to not be interested in getting him.

ESPN's Adam Schefter said on Wednesday that the Niners gave Garoppolo's agents, Don Yee and Carter Chow, permission to look for a trade for him.

The Cleveland Browns are one team that Yee and Chow won't be able to make a deal with.

Mary Kay Cabot of Cleveland.com says that the Browns aren't likely to try to trade for Garoppolo.

The Browns reportedly thought about trading for the 30-year-old earlier this offseason, when it wasn't clear how long Deshaun Watson would be out.

The Browns' backup quarterback right now is Jacoby Brissett. Earlier this week, Cabot wrote that the team would sign a backup for Brissett if Watson got a long suspension.

This week, Cleveland signed Josh Rosen to give their quarterback room more depth.

The 49ers might have a hard time finding someone who wants Garoppolo. Most teams who needed help at quarterback this offseason, like the Carolina Panthers, have already filled the spot.

The Seattle Seahawks could be the team that gets the player, but San Francisco might want a bigger return to make a trade within the same division.

The 49ers might have to be patient and wait for more teams to come up that need quarterbacks.
