Patriots | Hoping to wait on Jimmy Garoppolo
New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft said he hopes QB Jimmy Garoppolo, who the team selected in this year's draft, "doesn't get a chance to start for a long, long time." "If we didn't have somebody like Tommy in our system, it would've been very devastating," Kraft continued. "You know in any business you always need disaster insurance that's the most important thing, and now we have a young man that I hope he's as good as everyone feels."
Fantasy Tip: Kraft's statement doesn't imply that the team doesn't think highly of the rookie passer, otherwise they wouldn't have drafted him. The hope is that Tom Brady has at least several more productive years left in him, and if he remains healthy, that could easily happen.
