Unless the Browns only offered them 2nd-3rd round picks for Jimmy G I think the Pats made a mistake by saying no. I think they are better off rolling with Brisett behind Brady and getting value for someone that is probably as good as gone next year unless they franchise tag him which would be stupid to franchise tag your backup. But that being said the Pats don't always go by the book and could franchise him but I think by the time Brady is done I think Jimmy G will be a starter for another team so the way I look at it is that they should try to at least get something for him rather than just letting him walk. Also now that the Browns, Giants, Texans Chifes and 49ers(maybe) have taken their QB of the future and with the QBs coming out in the draft next year the Pats I actually think made a mistake by holding on to Garapolo. The last two spots I could see him ending up is the Jets or the Carndals but more likely the Cardbals but I highly doubt either of those will happen

What do you guys think?

I feel like they might hold out and see if any teams starter goes down with an injury like the Vikings last season and try and trade him to a desperate team like that.

Maybe but I doubt that will happen. If they were asking for what the Eagles got for Bradford they would have traded him already but since they are asking for a lot more I doubt a team will give up multiple 1st round picks for a guy like Jimmy G. But I think they should try and get another 1st round pick for next year because they will have big needs at CB/ OLB/ WR/ SS I think they will go after a safety or corner in the first round next year and if they have two picks to address both that would be great. Hopefully Edalman resigns but other than that a lot of those guys who are FAs next year aren't coming back and will need to be replaced.

Or they realize they have the successor to Brady. The Patriots found a franchise QB in round 2. If they move Garoppolo they will have to find another QB very soon. They would probably have to give up at least a few picks to get to the top of the draft to find someone who MIGHT be a replacement. Why not just keep Jimmy and let him back up Brady until he retires or gets hurt?

Because after this season you are going to have to start franchise tagging him and that will be roughly 17+ million for a backup QB that won't be seeing the field.
