“Trent Williams: Jimmy Garoppolo one of reasons I chose 49ers”

After longtime 49ers tackle Joe Staley retired following the 2019 season, Williams said he paid extra close attention to San Francisco as he searched for a ticket out of Washington. Williams mentioned that he doesn’t believe he’s played with many players such as Garoppolo.
“I think Jimmy G is awesome,” Williams told The NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport on the RapSheet Friends podcast. “I think he has proven that he’s a quarterback that you can win with. In this league, it’s just hard to find. Quarterback is the toughest position and I think that’s why you see the contracts where they are.
“Having a quarterback that you know is going to make the right read, the right throw, I think that has to allow Kyle (Shanahan), you know, give him a chance to sleep at night because just having a guy you know who won’t throw the game away for you. You put him in the best position possible. He’ll win.”
The 2020 season will be Williams’ 11th in the NFL and first with the 49ers. A seven-time Pro Bowler, Williams experienced complications from a surgical procedure done last April to remove a growth from his head that was diagnosed as dermatofibrosarcoma protuberans. He did not report to the team’s mandatory mini-camp and demanded to be released or traded over how the team’s medical staff handled the situation.
