Hue Jackson, Browns Coaches Reportedly ‘Irate’ They Didn’t Land Jimmy Garoppolo, Because LOL Browns
Jimmy Garoppolo, Tom Brady’s talented backup in New England for the past three-and-a-half years, was one of the Cleveland Browns’ top trade targets during the most recent off-season. In fact, there was a strong feeling that the Browns, who have two first-round picks and three second-round picks in the 2018 NFL Draft, were actually going to land him.
Instead, the Browns being the Browns, they traded for Brock Osweiler (who never made a start for them) and drafted DeShone Kizer who has been much less than stellar so far in his rookie season (among other things).
“Tom, these quarterbacks here in Cleveland are killing me. Please make sure we get Garoppolo if you guys decided to trade him…” (probably)
So when it was announced Monday night that Garoppolo had been traded to the San Francisco 49ers for just one second-round pick it left many people in and around the NFL a little surprised.
