Jimmy Garoppolo could be making a return to New England soon. Rumors out in the sports world are saying the Patriots and 49ers are close to a trade. The 49ers would send Garoppolo and picks to New England. The Patriots would send N’Keal Harry and pick to San Francisco. Reports came out Wednesday that teams were calling the Patriots about Harry. Garoppolo coming back would help Belichick and the Patriots are more successful in 2021.
Bringing an actual pocket passer like Garoppolo back to New England is huge since they just brought back OT Trent Brown from the Raiders. Belichick has always praised Garoppolo and was forced to trade him in 2017 after Brady went to Kraft. The Patriots got a sixth Super Bowl out of it but never had a plan at the most important position. Garoppolo was the plan all along but Brady just keeps on playing and it screwed up Belichick’s plan. Belichick went with Cam Newton in 2020 and went 7-9. Brady won another Super Bowl.
The talk of the offseason is Brady beat Belichick. Belichick has the chance to answer with bringing back the quarterback he wanted all along to replace Brady. They can go back to what they did before he was traded, get him some receivers, and a tight end. They would be a playoff team with Garoppolo no question. Belichick has always been high on Garoppolo since he drafted him. When he traded him to San Francisco in 2017 he said nothing but good things. He never has a press conference praising players that were traded. He did for Jimmy.
Jimmy coming back puts faith back into the fans. After seeing Brady win the Super Bowl they really need a response at quarterback. Garoppolo is the answer to fill that void in the position. Fans would tune in more if Garoppolo was here and don’t forget who the Patriots play next season. Tom Brady and the defending Super Bowl Champion Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Stay tuned for the possible Friday news dump Garoppolo to the Patriots.
