Draft Scout Jimmy Garoppolo News
06/06/17 - QB Jimmy Garoppolo may be stuck behind Tom Brady on the New England depth chart. He may be relegated to backup duty yet again heading into the fourth and final year of his rookie contract. And the former second-round pick may not really know when and where he might ascend to a starting job in the NFL.
Following the first day of the Patriots mandatory mini-camp this week, the affable Garoppolo was all smiles and said all the right things regarding his less than ideal situation.
"It's your career, so you're obviously thinking about it a bit, but I mean with OTAs and everything going on, there's plenty to think about with that," Garoppolo said, though admitting he thinks about his future "from time to time."
With Brady playing at an elite level as he's set to turn 40 this summer and talking about playing into his mid-40s, Garoppolo would seem unlikely to have a future in New England. But there has been speculation the team could franchise the backup next February and Garoppolo was even asked if he might entertain the possibility of signing an extension with the team.
"I entertain any possibility," Garoppolo said. "I don't know, like I said, I'm not really thinking about too much right now. There's just so much going on with OTAs and training camp is right around the corner. That's where my focus is. We'll cross that bridge when we get there, I guess."
04/28/17 - QB Jimmy Garoppolo was again targeted by the Cleveland Browns but the New England Patriots again turned down the trade inquiry. The Browns inquired Thursday night during the NFL Draft about acquiring the 25-year-old Garoppolo and were told once again the Patriots were not interested, sources told ESPN. Garoppolo started the Patriots' first two games of 2016 as Tom Brady served a four-game suspension as part of the Deflategate penalties. In those two games, Garoppolo completed over 71 percent of his passes for 496 yards, four touchdowns and no interceptions. He injured his right throwing shoulder late in the second quarter of his second start, and then missed the team's next two games before returning to his backup role for the rest of the season.
10/19/16 - QB Jimmy Garoppolo (right shoulder) remains limited in practice though he's been active in recent weeks as Tom Brady's backup.
10/14/16 - QB Jimmy Garoppolo (right shoulder) is questionable for Sunday.
10/12/16 - QB Jimmy Garoppolo (right shoulder) continues to be limited in practice because of an AC sprain, although he returned to active status and actually saw mop-up duty in Sunday's win in Cleveland.
