Schefter: Patriots ‘Not Expected to Trade’ QB Jimmy Garoppolo

In a tweet that made many Browns fans cringe today, Adam Schefter of ESPN stated that the Super Bowl Champion New England Patriots will be keeping Jimmy Garoppolo for the upcoming 2017 season.

Garoppolo was the apple of many Browns fans eyes as the player they wanted to be their starting quarterback this upcoming season and beyond.

If Schefter is correct in his reporting, the Browns will have to look elsewhere or on their current roster for their signal caller come opening day.

Schefter went on WEEI Radio in Boston today and said the Tom Brady backup is staying put – no matter what the deal may be.

“Jimmy Garoppolo is going to be on the Patriots in 2017 no matter who calls them and what anybody offers,” Schefter said on WEEI.

Patriots beat writer Jeff Howe from the Boston Herald backed up what Schefter said, but seems to still feel that the QB could be on the block if the right offer comes around.

It was thought since the end of the season that the Browns were hot on the trails for Garoppolo, but for now if the reports are right they will have to go back to the drawing board.
