Pats want 2 first-rounders for Jimmy G

Pats want 2 first-rounders for Jimmy G

If the New England Patriots are indeed going to trade Jimmy Garoppolo this offseason, it is logical to believe the move will happen sooner rather than later. Cleveland Browns beat writer Mary Kay Cabot heard from one source that it "might" require a first round pick this year and a first round pick next year.

First of all, it's a quarterback-driven league and Garoppolo was very impressive in his two relief starts for the suspended Brady, with wins over Arizona (the league's second-ranked defense in 2016) and Miami at the beginning of last season.

While there may be pressure on the Patriots to get something in return for Garoppolo with his free agency one year away, the situation isn't dire just yet.

Until we know whether or not Garoppolo wants to play for the Browns, we can't know how likely a trade is. Short of placing the franchise tag on a backup with a future Hall of Famer starting, they risk the possibility of losing him for free.

The first two match points came on Donskoy's serve in the 10th game of the third set. The Spaniard said: "I'll just try to recover and be as ready as possible".

This runs counter to earlier reports about the Patriots taking Garoppolo off of the trade market, but it appears Belichick will only consider parting with his coveted backup quarterback for an especially sweet deal.

This year's draft class also may impact the thinking of NFL GMs and coaches in regard to Garoppolo. They did not have a first-round pick past year as part of their Deflategate punishment. After all, Garoppolo is set to become a free agent following this upcoming season.

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.

Belichick and the Patriots will continue to work the suitors for Garoppolo under the guise that they're happy to keep him.
