“No Jimmy GQ reunion for the Pats in foreseeable future,” Schultz added.
The Patriots re-signed Cam Newton to a one-year deal worth $5.4 million with incentives based on games started and a potential playoff appearance, but Bill Belichick still could add another quarterback to the roster this offseason. They currently own the No. 15 pick in the draft after finishing last season 7-9, missing the postseason for the first time since 2008.
Garoppolo appeared in just six games last season due to an ankle injury after leading the Niners to Super Bowl LIV the previous year. He’d also suffered a torn ACL in his left knee early in the 2018 season.
The Boston Sports Journal reported earlier this month – before Newton’s signing — that trading for Garoppolo was “Plan A” for the Patriots this offseason. But the outlet’s Greg Bedard said in a radio interview last week that New England has “moved on” because the 49ers “won’t engage” in substantive trade discussions.
