Bill Belichicks retirement plans will decide Jimmy Garoppolos future

Bill Belichicks retirement plans will decide Jimmy Garoppolos future

Jimmy Garoppolo proved early in the 2016 season that he can be a viable starting quarterback for a playoff-caliber team in Tom Brady's absence, but with a 39-year-old Brady declaring that he doesn't plan to retire anytime soon, the Patriots have to decide whether to keep Garoppolo as Brady's successor or cash him in for valuable NFL Draft picks.

Colin Cowherd believes the Patriots could land a fortune for Garoppolo - who is more of a sure-thing than any QB in the draft class - on the trade market, and earlier this week Julian Edelman showered Garoppolo with praise.

Former Patriots offensive coordinator Eric Mangini argued that Belichick is obligated to keep Garoppolo for the good of the franchise if he believes Garoppolo is a future star, but on Wednesday's episode of The Herd, Colin Cowherd argued that the decision over Garoppolo's future will come down to how much longer Belichick plans to coach.
