The Patriots have traded Jimmy Garoppolo to the San Francisco 49ers for a 2nd round draft choice. At first I’m asking why? Isn’t Garoppolo the quarterback of the future? What are the Patriots going to do for a back-up if Tom Brady goes down? Then I thought about it… Why not trade Garoppolo. He’s an unrestricted free agent anyway at the end of the season so why not get something for him now. There is no way that Garoppolo was going to stay with the Patriots unless they promised him a starting job next year. We know that’s not going to happen. Also the Patriots are getting a 34th or 35th draft pick which I would say is a pretty good deal for your back-up quarterback.
If Brady goes down I don’t think it matters who the next quarterback is anyway.The Pats are cooked just like any other team that loses a first string quarterback. Do you think the Green Bay Packers are cooked this year? The Patriots are riddled by injuries as it is now so they can’t afford too many more injuries whether it’s Brady or anybody else for that matter.
Trading Garoppolo? Yea why not?
If the Patriots are looking for a back-up quarterback Colin Kaepernick is available.
I went 12-1 in the NFL week #8 to bring my overall record to 71-48.
