If 49ers quarterback Jim Garoppolo hadn’t needed offseason shoulder surgery, he likely would have been traded. And one of the potential destinations apparently was the Miami Dolphins.

“They were in the conversation,” Garoppolo told reporters on Thursday, regarding the Dolphins. “Not much came from it, but they were definitely one of the teams in the conversation. It seemed like a good spot. As an offense, that’s tremendous skillplayers, everything they got going over there. Mike {McDaniel] being a great coach, I had been with him in the past here and it was discussed, but I’m glad the way things worked out.”
