It looks like Jimmy Garoppolo will be playing 2017 with the Patriots.
As the NFL draft nears, the only team really left in the mix to potentially trade for him is the Browns, but by the way Browns head of football operations Sashi Brown spoke Wednesday, it doesn’t seem like it is going to happen.
Brown was asked at his pre-draft press conference if the team plans to trade for a veteran quarterback?
Without hesitation he said no, via Cleveland.com.
“Could we in theory? Yes,” he said. “But are we planning on it or is that the plan? No.”
With the draft just over a week away, there could be more rumors between now and then, but it appears Garoppolo will be spending another season backing up Tom Brady in New England.
