Ryan Mallett sidelined; Jimmy Garoppolo gets chance
by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer

Patriots backup quarterback Ryan Mallett sported a brace on his knee during warmup drills on Wednesday, suggesting that is the reason for him missing offseason workouts. ESPN notes rookie Jimmy Garoppolo took his reps in team drills, struggling with everything from getting the snap to completing passes.

Belichick not interested in trading Ryan Mallett
by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer

Appearing on SiriusXM NFL Radio Thursday, Patriots coach Bill Belichick said it's unlikely that his team will trade backup quarterback Ryan Mallett, who had been the subject of trade rumors the week of the draft. 

"It's not really something that we were interested in," Belichick said of trading Mallett. "Ryan's done a good job for us, fortunately for our team, maybe not fortunately for Ryan, he hasn't really had any playing time in the last three years but he's improved tremendously as a quarterback and we have a lot of confidence in him."

It sounds like Mallett will enter his final year on his deal as a backup behind Tom Brady.

Report: Ryan Mallett trade not dead yet
by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer

The Texans and Patriots have what is believed to be "mutual interest" in a trade involving New England backup quarterback Ryan Mallett, NFL Network reports. This comes after the Texans drafted Pitt quarterback Tom Savage in Round 4. 

Mallett is entering a contract year and has thrown four passes over his first three seasons while backing up Tom Brady. Meanwhile, the Patriots drafted Jimmy Garoppolo in the second round, and he might end up backing up Brady -- or at least makes Mallett expendable.

Patriots draft QB Jimmy Garoppolo
by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer

With the No. 62 pick in the NFL Draft, the Patriots selected quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo from Eastern Illinois.

Garoppolo will be No. 3 on the depth chart for the Patriots behind Tom Brady and Ryan Mallett. He could be the eventual replacement for Brady if Mallett isn't with the Patriots beyond 2014 when he's a free agent.

A four-year starter, Garoppolo ran a unique offense that combined an up-tempo approach with a pure read philosophy at Eastern Illinois. The end result was a slew of plays week after week -- and the stats to match. Garoppolo threw for 13,156 passing yards and 118 touchdowns over four seasons and impressively had just nine interceptions over 568 pass attempts.

He's considered a smart, big enough quarterback with a good arm and a very fast release, but questions about his experience playing in the FCS rather than the FBS cloud his future. The Patriots have time to find out with Brady not going anywhere any time soon.
