The Seattle Seahawks are reportedly in the market for a Super Bowl-winning quarterback this offseason. According to ESPN NFL insider Jeremy Fowler, Seattle could look to make a major move for San Francisco 49ers quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo.

Fowler reported that the Seahawks front office has done its due diligence on Garoppolo.

"They've done their film work to see how he will fit."

Right now, the only quarterbacks on the Seahawks roster with any starting experience are Drew Lock and Geno Smith. Lock was acquired by the team in a blockbuster trade for Russell Wilson, who’s now with the Denver Broncos.

Lock was selected by the Broncos in the second round of the 2019 NFL Draft and started 21 games in three seasons with Denver. In the 2020 season, he threw for 2,933 yards, 16 touchdowns and 15 interceptions. He was tied for the most interceptions with Carson Wentz that season. He only started three games for the Broncos last season.

Geno Smith, meanwhile, is entering his third season with the Seahawks and ninth overall in the NFL. Last season, Smith started three games for Seattle in place of an injured Wilson, throwing for five touchdowns and an interception with 707 passing yards.

Overall, he’s started 34 games in his NFL career, 30 of which were with the New York Jets (2013-2016), three with Seattle, and one with the New York Giants (2017).

Garoppolo was traded by New England to San Francisco in October 2017. He has started 45 games under center for the 49ers since his arrival.

Garoppolo has led the 49ers to two NFC Championship games and took them to Super Bowl in the 2019 season, losing to the Kansas City Chiefs.

In 2021, he started 15 games, throwing for 3,810 yards with 20 touchdowns and 10 interceptions.

He’s been the subject of many trade rumors this offseason as San Francisco look set to start their first-round selection from last year’s draft, Trey Lance.
