It seems that the New England Patriots are reluctant to reconnect with quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo.
Since the California team won the third overall pick in the upcoming NFL draft, people are full of speculation about the future of the San Francisco 49ers center. According to several oval experts, Niners hopes to use this option to acquire promising young quarterbacks.
However, a member of the organization who wishes to remain anonymous told ESPN that “Jimmy G” has not gone anywhere and he is the number one in the 2021 campaign.
It doesn’t matter, if the 49ers trade or release the 29-year-old player, they will save $23.6 million in salary.
Garoppolo’s name is related to the “Pats” organization because it seems to be looking for a new quarterback. In addition, he played for New England clubs in the first three NFL seasons.
The Patriots traded him to the 49ers in October 2017. At the time, it was reported that the head coach Bill Belichick wanted to keep him in the team and wanted him to replace Tom Brady.
In 31 games with Niners, Garoppolo maintained a 22-8 record, completed 67.5% of passes at 7,352 yards, and found 46 teammates in the salary zone.
As for “Pats,” the organization signed a new single-season contract with quarterback Cam Newton. The latter will have an arduous task to replace Brady in 2020. The former MVP conducted a regular campaign, and the Patriots missed the playoffs for the first time since 2008.
