Garafolo adds that Garcon still wants to play and could have a better market than some may think, given that there isn’t a lot of depth at receiver this year.
Garcon actually came up as a possible trade candidate before this year’s deadline, but the 49ers ultimately elected to hold on to him.
Garcon, 32, is a former sixth-round pick of the Colts back in 2008. He played four seasons for the Colts before joining the Redskins in 2012.
The 49ers signed Garcon to a five-year, $47.5 million contract that included $17 million guaranteed last year. He stands to make base salaries of $6.62 million and $5.6 million over the next two years of the agreement.
In 2018, Garcon appeared in eight games for the 49ers and caught 24 passes for 286 yards receiving and one touchdown.
