The Patriots Traded Jimmy Garoppolo to the 49ers, But Who Will Back Up Brady?
As of right now, NOBODY. However, a knowledgeable insider is claiming that it's very likely that a familiar face will be backing up TB12 any minute now.
According to ESPN's Mike Reiss, Former Patriots Quarterback Brian Hoyer ('09-'11) will likely sign with The Pats soon. He was just released by San Francisco, presumably to make room for Mr. Garoppolo.
Still only 32 years of age, Hoyer had played for an astonishing SEVEN NFL teams.
Rumors abound that Hoyer was to originally be part of the trade with Jimmy G, but the two teams agreed to terms with a 2018 second round draft pick instead.
