Just about 24 hours before the trade deadline, the New England Patriots shocked the football world by trading well-known backup quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo to the San Francisco 49ers. The 25-year-old was revered by many teams seeking a quarterback, including the Cleveland Browns and San Francisco, due to his exceptional play in the two games he had started for New England during the suspension of starting quarterback Tom Brady, beginning the 2016 season. The Patriots received a 2018 second-round pick in compensation for the quarterback, a price seen as typically high for a backup. Due to the 49ers 0-8 record so far this season, this pick is likely to land early within the second-round. Garoppolo will most likely be taking over as the team’s starting quarterback, as former starters CJ Beathard and Brian Hoyer have not performed up to expectations. This trade has caused much controversy within New England, as fans continue to ponder whether or not this was the right move for the team. The Patriots are clearly confident 40-year-old Tom Brady will be able to continue his stellar play for years to come.
