It sounds like the Colts might take a hard look at 49ers quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo.

The Colts sent shockwaves through the league Wednesday when they traded Carson Wentz to the Washington Commanders. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football)

Now, the team is on the hunt for a new quarterback and the 49ers starter might be in the mix.

According to Ian Rapoport, there is a good chance Jimmy G will “be in the mix” for the Colts as they search for a new starter under center.

If the Colts think they can land Jimmy G, they should 100% pursue him. At this point, he’s probably the best option for a veteran quarterback.

As I’ve said too many times to count, Jimmy G is much better than people realize. He knows what it takes to win in the NFL, and has been to a Super Bowl and just went to the NFC title game.

The idea that he can’t win in the NFL is laughable. Sure, he’s not a star, but he’s more than serviceable.

Plus, the Colts already have a ton of talent and arguably the best running back in the league in Jonathan Taylor. They’re just missing the quarterback play needed to compete.

Jimmy G could step in on day one and give them a boost. At the very least, the Colts need to pick up the phone and give him a call.

The Colts should absolutely pursue Jimmy G if they can get him for a reasonable price.
