Patriots' Jimmy Garoppolo: Likely still staying in New England
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

While the Browns and/or Texans might make a late push to trade for Garoppolo, it's still unlikely the Patriots will part ways with their backup quarterback this offseason, The Boston Herald's Karen Guregian reports.

The Patriots clearly want a lot in return for Garoppolo, who is preparing for the final year of his rookie contract after thriving in his two starts last season. Cleveland has been the most frequently mentioned destination, but Houston might actually be a better fit, with the Texans boasting a playoff-caliber roster that doesn't have many weaknesses besides quarterback. Both teams are expected to select signal-callers in the early rounds of the draft, but one (or both) could make a late push for Garoppolo instead. The Browns have plenty of time to develop a young quarterback, whereas the Texans may be worried about wasting a talented roster because of poor play from Tom Savage and a rookie. While such a concern makes a lot of sense, it probably won't be enough to motivate Houston to meet the Patriots' lofty asking price.

Patriots' Jimmy Garoppolo: Not expected to be traded in offseason
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Patriots aren't expected to trade Garoppolo during the offseason, Adam Schefter of reports.

With Tom Brady offering no indication that he plans on retiring in the near future following his fifth Super Bowl victory in February, Garoppolo represents little more than an insurance policy for the Patriots, but an elite one at that. After Brady missed the first four games last season while under suspension, Garoppolo performed steadily as a fill-in starter for the first two contests before missing the final two games of Brady's absence with a sprained AC joint in his throwing shoulder. He ultimately recovered from the injury and went on to complete 68 percent of his passes for 8.0 yards per attempt, four touchdowns and no interceptions across six appearances on the season. While the Patriots' well-oiled offensive system surely aided his numbers, Garoppolo demonstrated the sort of proficiency and sound decision making that several teams would have valued in their own starting quarterbacks, leading many to speculate that the 25-year-old would draw plenty of interest around the league if the Patriots made him available via trade. It appears that barring another extended absence for Brady, Garoppolo will have to wait at least one more season for a starting opportunity with the Patriots or any other team to materialize, which will continue to limit his fantasy appeal largely to dynasty formats heading into 2017.

Patriots' Jimmy Garoppolo: Throws for 502 yards in 2016
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Garoppolo finished up the 2016 regular season with 43 completions on 63 attempts for 502 yards to go along with four TDs and zero picks over the course of six appearances for the Patriots.

The 2014 second-rounder had an early-season opportunity to fill in for the suspended Tom Brady cut short due to a shoulder injury, but Garoppolo was nonetheless able to do enough in the time that he was healthy to potentially draw offseason trade interest. Garoppolo is under contract with New England in 2017, but with Brady still entrenched as the team's starter, the Patriots could be tempted to deal Garoppolo if the right offer comes along. Alternatively, they could hold on to him as a valuable insurance policy for Brady, who is set to turn 40 this coming August.

Patriots' Jimmy Garoppolo: No injury designation anymore
by RotoWire Staff | Special to

Garoppolo does not have a designation on Friday's final injury report for Sunday's game against the Steelers.

Garoppolo was limited in Wednesday's practice, but he's since been removed from New England's injury report, indicating that he's put the issue with his right shoulder behind him. While the Patriots will certainly be glad to have Garoppolo fully healthy, he's nothing more than Tom Brady's backup now.

Patriots' Jimmy Garoppolo: Set to back Brady up Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Garoppolo (right shoulder) is listed as active for Sunday's game against the Browns.

With Jacoby Brissett now on IR, Garoppolo is locked in as Tom Brady's top backup, but he's not going to start again this season unless Brady suffers an injury, or in the event that a late-season scenario emerges in which starters are rested.
