With Jimmy Garoppolo benched, here’s a look back at the now-convoluted Patriots trade
The deal with Jimmy Garoppolo is one of the most studied decisions under Bill Belichick, the coach of the New England Patriots. The man who rarely loses a trade seemed to be doing the San Francisco 49ers a favor by sending Garoppolo off for a second round. There have been rumors that the Cleveland Browns were offering a much larger package, which begs the question why Belichick didn't take the best deal.
With years of separation, the focus is more clearly on retail. The 49ers removed Garoppolo from Sunday's game to protect his health in what many saw as a bank. It was a strange sight. This does not mean that Garoppolo's run in San Francisco is over. But maybe with the organization his future will get more complicated.
The Patriots have now broken down the selection of the second round from the Garoppolo trade into so many parts that it is not easy to show what exactly Belichick got for it. But Yahoo's Eric Edholm broke it. It included all parts of the business. Keep in mind that the Patriots had to exchange additional assets in order to acquire some of the players that were a product of this deal. But it's a fascinating web to follow.
It is unfair to proclaim the Patriot winners. Garoppolo brought the 49ers to the Super Bowl in 2019. And again New England exchanged it for a price apparently below the market price. But it's impressive that Belichick managed to turn the second round selection into so many contributors. It's a complicated trade - and a fascinating one.
There is still plenty of time to tip one way or another.
