Patriots not expected to trade Jimmy Garoppolo

Patriots not expected to trade Jimmy Garoppolo

The trade market for Jimmy Garoppolo appears to be hotter than ever now that the NFL offseason has officially begun, but could the New England Patriots value the backup quarterback too much to deal him.

After speaking with Patriots sources at the Super Bowl earlier this month, ESPNs Ed Werder was given the impression that Bill Belichick plans to hold onto Garoppolo for at least another season.

Garoppolo will be a free agent in 2018, and Belichick hardly ever lets a player walk away if he can get value in return first. Given the way Tom Brady played this season, its safe to assume the Patriots are not going to keep Garoppolo beyond next season. So why wouldnt they trade him for a high draft pick?

While New England fans dont want to hear it, its possible that the Patriots still want to wait one more year to see where a soon-to-be 40-year-old Brady is at.
