Here’s a look at the 49ers defense over a week into free agency and before the draft. I think we’re gonna add DE/LB and CB depth. Adrian Colbert and Jimmie Ward will both compete for the starting FS spot but I give Colbert the edge with the way he finished the season. Thoughts? What upgrades do we need?
Picture this alternate reality:
The Patriots understand Jimmy Garoppolo is the future of the franchise, and that future is coming faster than anyone expects. They decide to keep him, rather than trade him to the 49ers right before the trade deadline. Maybe he sees some playing time, maybe he doesn't. Nevertheless, they sign him to a contract extension before the season's over. Obviously, Brady's furious. Remember, it was Brady's sensitive ego that got Garoppolo traded in the first place. Belichick is fed up, and starts seeing what the trade market is like for the reigning MVP.
Now here's my question: if you were the GM of a QB needy team, what would you give up for him? A player that decorated, it would be hard to imagine moving him for less than a first, however it's important to note he isn't getting any younger. But does his age matter if he thinks he can play another five years?
I know this is an unrealistic situation, and it feels weird even for me to think about Brady playing for another team. I'm just curious what kind of value you guys think Tom Brady would have on the trade market. Comment your thoughts! #nfl#nfllegends#nflgoat#nflhistory#tombrady#jimmygaroppolo#newenglandpatriots
