But a nice alternative package could include the Browns' second first-rounder in this draft (No. 12 overall that the Browns are reportedly willing to part with in a potential Garoppolo deal) plus one of two second-rounders held by Cleveland (No. 33 or No. 52 overall). Now add in the fact that Garoppolo has two career starts under his belt, and this is magnified even further.
If two first-round picks is the right price, it's highly unlikely that the Patriots will end up sending Garoppolo packing.
Until we know whether or not Garoppolo wants to play for the Browns, we can't know how likely a trade is.
Perhaps Cleveland could give up the No. 12 pick and the Browns' first-round pick next year to land Garoppolo? He too was unsure of the Patriots price tag, but did say that, "o$3 ne working theory has been a first- and second-round draft pick, but not all first- and second-rounders are created equal".
China sets lowest growth target in more than 20 years
Despite the decline, that growth would keep China's economy as one of the world's strongest - the second-largest behind the U.S. The target is below expectations and indicates authorities will prioritise risk-control over short-term growth.
But Garoppolo is a valuable commodity with so many teams looking for franchise quarterbacks. I think everyone needs to see more from Garoppolo before giving up that much for him. The man is driven to be the best ever and to constantly remind the entire National Football League that he never should have lasted until the sixth round of the 2000 draft. According to Cleveland.com's Mary Kay Cabot, the Browns will consider Buffalo's Tyrod Taylor (if he becomes a free agent) and Cincinnati's A.J. McCarron.
Still, despite reports that the Patriots aren't interested in trading Garoppolo, it sounds like teams will still pursue him, and in the Browns' case, may pursue him hard. And just when it's hit the "first rounder and another pick" hype?
Belichick and the Patriots will continue to work the suitors for Garoppolo under the guise that they're happy to keep him.
