New England Patriots won't trade QB Jimmy Garoppolo

New England Patriots won't trade QB Jimmy Garoppolo

The 25-year-old did impress but would soon be forgotten once the regular starting role was handed back to Brady.

As of right now, the Patriots hold the 72nd and 96th overall selections, both in the third round, as their only picks in the first two days of the draft. Patriots WR Devin Lucien received $85,412 guaranteed as the 225th overall pick in the 2016 NFL Draft, while undrafted free agent CB Jonathan Jones was one of the highest-paid undrafted prospects and received just $35,000 guaranteed. But will the Patriots - who have already picked up cornerback Stephon Gilmore in a $65 million free agent acquisition from the Buffalo Bills - upgrade again by adding one of the top cornerbacks in the National Football League in Sherman?

Guregian does not rule out a renewed approach from the Cleveland Browns or even the Houston Texans before or during the draft, but considers it extremely unlikely that the quarterback will be dealt.

"In this hypothetical deal, the Seahawks send Sherman to the Patriots".

It also tells us that the Patriots value Garoppolo highly, simply because they could get a king's ransom in return for him in terms of picks from a quarterback-needy team like the Browns - but at this point they don't care.

The San Francisco 49ers and Indianapolis Colts are both looking to trade down from their picks at No. 2 and No. 15, respectively, in the draft, according to ESPN's Dan Graziano.

Tom Curran of CSN New England says it will take multiple first-round picks for Belichick to reconsider trading Garoppolo.

There's only one catch. Sources had similarly told Schefter in early March that New England meant to keep Garoppolo for 2017 and possibly beyond, in a decision that would have a ripple effect on QB-needy teams throughout the NFL.

Karen Guregian of the Boston Herald reported Sunday that trading Garoppolo would be "a long shot", and it would take "an overwhelming offer" to convince the Patriots to part with their coveted backup. The Patriots remained adamant about keeping him, Schefter said.

Some teams have very clear needs entering the 2017 NFL Draft - a franchise quarterback, a field-stretching wide receiver, a ball-hawking cornerback, etc. "That was Cooks", NFL former Patriots fullback, now NFL Network analyst, Heath Evans told The Boston Herald. "They'll be the ones taking all the calls".
