    Makes too much sense for them . and like Lombardi said before they will be aggressive.

    Hue Jackson doesn't have too much time . to wait for some college guy to develop.

    If it is inevitable he leaves . then Id hate this move the least.

    Report: Browns Interested In Possible Trade For Patriots QB Jimmy Garoppolo - NFLTradeRumors.co

    Quotes:

    Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain Dealer spoke to sources at the Senior Bowl who said that the Browns’ reported interest in Patriots backup QB Jimmy Garoppolo “is real” and they’ll attempt to trade for him, depending on how their evaluations of this year’s draft prospects go in the coming weeks.

    Cabot expects Cleveland to have competition for Garoppolo, possibly from Kyle Shanahan, who is expected to be hired as the 49ers’ head coach in the coming days. Even so, Cabot’s sources say that they Browns are “intrigued” by Garoppolo and will strongly consider pursuing a trade for him.

    If the Browns are able to agree to a deal with the Patriots for Garoppolo, Cabot says it will likely cost them the No. 12 overall pick and more.

    At any given time the Browns board I read has a couple of Jimmy G threads going. I guess that won't let up any time soon now.

    The Browns could get decent if they get a few OL vets to go with Thomas and a returning Bitonio. Pryor and Coleman are a decent pair of WR and Crowell/Johnson is a solid RB pair. Put JG with that (critical to get some OL vets) and the offense could be decent. Garrett and Collins start the D and they have extra picks (even if they moved #12) to add to the defense.

    It's great for the Pats, but concerned JG could be going to a graveyard.

    I like Jimmy G too much to have the Browns ruin him.

    I hope the Browns have figured out that there's no sense spending on a QB if you don't also spend on an OL to protect him. Cleveland has been the place QBs go to be broken.

    Jackson coaching Garoppolo throwing to Coleman and maybe Gordon in the future could be a major step up for the Browns. They'd still have a loooong way to go, but that would certainly be a good start. Jackson is a good coach when it comes to coaching up QBs.

    Not sure I understand some of the logic behind what happens to JG if/once he gets traded to the Browns. Don't get me wrong I hope he's successful but as a Pats fan it's about the value the Patriots get in return.

    I don't know of many Browns fans who think Gordon plays for them again. Coleman and Pryor could be a solid pair though. In the unlikely event that you can add Gordon and it's really nice.

    For what its worth as far as trade destinations, Jimmy Garoppolo is a Chicago native.

    Just speculative advice, but

    Jimmy Garoppolo should be a target for Bears, per NFL analyst

    The tricky part for the Browns, if they perefer Watson, Trubisky, etc, they can't be sure they'll get him at #12 (and almost certainly won't use #1). If they like JG and could do something for him involving #12, it would be huge for them to be able to do it and be done, they'd have their guy. If they wait for the draft they could lose JG only to find the QB they wanted is gone in the top 11.

    If the Browns want to give up a 1st and 2nd Rounder for him, I say do it.

    Or on the flipside if Jimmy G is willing to stick it out here I say let him.

    Cleveland's first and a fourth would get the deal done while also giving the league office a big middle finger. Belichick loves versatility after all.

    I'd rather trade with SF49ers.... they have the #2 pick overall.

    From there we trade back multiple times because we aren't desperate for that 1 big impact player like most teams are.

    We go from 2 overall and trade back to #7 and get a couple extra picks... then we go from #7 to #12 and get a couple extra picks... then from #12 to #18 and get more picks....etc etc etc... BB will own the draft like none other.

    "they’ll attempt to trade for him, depending on how their evaluations of this year’s draft prospects go in the coming weeks"

    This, to me, is the key phrase. It depends on their evaluation on the prospects.

    Watson and Trubisky are grading out as fringe top 5 picks. If this article is correct, then it sounds like Hugh Jackson's job depends on his ability to find a starter. He can't afford to reach big and fail at #1 overall. Pick 10 is tricky, they would likely have to trade up from that spot to get either QB.

    Cleveland holds pick #33, a big value pick. I assume that, if interested, they will try to move this pick for Garoppolo.

    I hope so then trade back from #12 and really load up this draft

    Well, what a team wants to give up, but will give up, will likely change.

    It seems at least if you listen to messageboard wisdom :rolleyes: that a team shouldn't give up a 1st round pick for Jimmy, but remember that Robert Kraft was adamant about not trading the Pats' #1 pick to the Rats to get them to release their claim on BB.
