Stunner : 49ers trade for QB Jimmy Garoppolo

The 49ers have  acquired Jimmy Garoppolo from the New England Patriots for secound round pick in 2018.

Wow ! What a stunner ! Most experts were expecting the 49ers to go after Kirk Cousins in the offseason but they’ve had a change of heart apparently.

The Patriots had not shown any interest in moving Garoppolo. So far this year, they’ve gotten rid of both of Brady’s backups, Brissett and Garoppolo.

This is a good match for the 49ers, pairing the QB with offensive minded coach Kyle Shanahan. Their season is already over but this will be an interesting team to watch next year.

The Patriots are now counting on Brady to play for many more years.
