When he got to the podium, I asked him a general question about trades. The impetus for that was the status of Ryan Mallett – a luxury item as the Patriots third quarterback if indeed Jimmy Garoppolo beats...

When Brady finally decides to walk away he'd slide in and take over.But than the Patriots drafted Jimmy Garappolo out of Eastern Illinois in...
