It’s no secret that Bill Belichick has a soft spot for Jimmy Garoppolo. In fact, when Jimmy G was Tom Brady’s backup back in the day, Belichick wanted him to stick around long-term, and eventually replace the GOAT.
Brady didn’t like that, and Garoppolo was traded to the 49ers. After an injury-riddled tenure in San Francisco, the 49ers appear to be moving off of Jimmy, and trading their next quarterback with the #3 overall pick.
With that being said, the Patriots have been tied to Garoppolo. According to one report, they’re already working out a new contract for Jimmy for once the trade is finalized.
“What I’ve been told, by a reliable source —- @Patriotsare working on a new contract for Jimmy G that could lead to a deal with @49ers. Same source who correctly told me Tom Brady had signed with @Buccaneers. Doesn’t mean it will get done, but they’re working on it,” Boston reporter Dal Arnold tweeted out on Wednesday.

While it would make a whole lot of sense if Jimmy Garoppolo ends up back in New England, it seems like the trade is not imminent. That could change real quick, though.
