Negotiations continue between the San Francisco 49ers and their quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo.

The Niners traded for the impending free agent during the season and know they’ve acquired their quarterback of the future. Now, the franchise is working hard to lock him up long term.

“We believe we found the right guy,” general manager John Lynch said Wednesday on NFL Network, according to Eric Branch of the San Francisco Chronicle. “Now, the challenge is getting Jimmy signed. We’re working hard towards that. We’ll see. I think he wants to be with us and we want him there. So I think it makes too much sense not to happen.”

Once Garoppolo suited up for the Niners, he made an immediate impact. His second throw with the team was a touchdown pass, as he took over a one-win club in Week 13 and led them to five consecutive victories to end the season.

Lynch previously stated his desire to sign the quarterback on a long-term deal in his season-ending press conference, and the franchise is still making moves to secure that future some three weeks on.
