Jimmy Garoppolo is the hottest name on the market right now and that is because many believe the Patriots will deal him this year. Well that is not the case according to Ed Werder of ESPN. After speaking with Patriots sources at the Super Bowl earlier this month, ESPN’s Ed Werder was given the impression that Bill Belichick plans to hold onto Garoppolo for at least another season.
Based on what I heard from people inside #Patriots at SB and those familiar with their approach, I’m not expecting @JimmyG_10 to be traded

I want to know what you think? Do you think the Patriots are just trying to drive up the price of Garoppolo? Or do you think they want to hold onto him to make sure they have a back-up plan in case Brady is injured?
