Patriots could want two first round picks for Jimmy Garoppolo

New England Patriots quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo

Even trading anything for Garoppolo is a risk.

Cleveland.com's Mary Kay Cabot wrote Tuesday that she believes the Browns would strongly consider swapping the 12th pick for Garoppolo as part of their dream scenario, which also would involve choosing Texas A&M pass rusher Myles Garrett with the top pick in the draft. And while it's far from certain where Garoppolo will be at the start of next season, it's clear that the cost of acquiring him will be high. That wouldn't prevent him from being traded, but it would make a trade unlikely, as teams don't want to trade first-round picks for players who are going to leave in free agency a year later.

Then there's Garoppolo's contract status - going into his fourth and final year of his rookie deal. He too was unsure of the Patriots price tag, but did say that, "o$3 ne working theory has been a first- and second-round draft pick, but not all first- and second-rounders are created equal". And the last thing the Patriots want to see is Garoppolo ever hitting free agency where the division rival Jets or Bills could snap him up.

Obviously, the National Football League draft is hit or miss.


Belichick and the Patriots will be looking to create a similar bidding battle in order to up the ante on a Garoppolo deal. Maybe not a first round pick, but maybe something else.

All right, it's time to take a break from Hightower Watch 2017 and catch up with more insane trade rumors about Patriots backup quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo.

According to Cabot, the Browns may have a limit on what they'd give up for Garoppolo. After all, Garoppolo is set to become a free agent following this upcoming season. And as usual with a kingpin such as Belichick, the eventual and inevitable trade will be on his terms when it happens.
