The San Francisco 49ers have seen enough from quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo to be open to signing him to a long-term deal, reported Ian Rapoport of NFL Media on KNBR's Murph & Mac show Monday morning. Garoppolo is slated to become a free agent after the 2017 season, and the question surrounding his future as of late is whether the 49ers would choose to keep him under contract using the franchise tag or if they would want to extend a long-term offer in his direction. Rapoport says the 49ers would prefer to work out a long-term deal with Garoppolo, who has led the team to two wins in his two games as the starting quarterback. “My understanding has been they want to do the long-term,” Rapoport said.
