From the “nothing to see here” department: The New England Patriots still are not expected to trade quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo to the Cleveland Browns — or anyone else — before the 2017 season.
That’s according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, who reiterated Sunday what he’s been reporting for weeks now.
Other outlets have reported the same — that Garoppolo is not going anywhere.
The Patriots evidently believe the luxury of keeping Tom Brady’s backup around for at least one more season outweighs what they could get for him in a trade, which likely would include a first-round or high second-round pick.
So, again, nothing to see here.
