Patriots QB Jimmy Garoppolo open to a contract extension

New England Patriots quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo may be stuck behind Tom Brady on the New England depth chart. Garoppolo performed admirably, making two starts - both wins - and for the season completing 68.3 percent of his passes for 522 yards and four touchdowns with no interceptions.

As Allen returned to the line of scrimmage, Brady stretched his arms out while flashing his hands up, nearly as if to show Allen how the quarterback would advise him to make the catch. Those numbers are sure to make him a hot commodity should he reach the free-agent market.

The question becomes whether Garoppolo will go along with that, or whether he'll insist on doing things his way, the way that Brady consistently has.

Are the Patriots willing to devote $24 million to their backup quarterback via the franchise tag in 2018?

According to Garoppolo, he would "entertain" the thought of an extension, but his focus isn't there as of now. "I'm really not thinking about too much right now". "It's always important to me, whenever I get a little setback like that, to get back to where I need to be".

But Hamilton said he would not be asking Mercedes to favour him in the same way over team-mate Valtteri Bottas . Australian Daniel Ricciardo took his second successive podium with third place for Red Bull .

Brady has led New England to five Super Bowl championships and will turn 40 on August 3.

"Throughout the spring, throughout training camp, [however] my role develops, I'll fall in line and play to the best of my ability", he said.

If a QB tells you, "Obviously, I want to play", Garoppolo added, via USA Today. We come out here and compete every day for that opportunity and if you go out and earn it, it's yours. Garoppolo is going into his 4th season in Foxboro and says he's ready to play, but the problem is Tom Brady has said he wants to play until he's 45! Presumably, Garoppolo won't play for a team-friendly deal when he can be paid like a starter somewhere else. "There's a lot of quarterbacks that reached that point and they leave".

Garoppolo also addressed for the first time his Instagram post from March, which was the result of a hack and had the caption: "So grateful for my time in New England". After an impressive 2015 campaign replacing Peyton Manning for seven games, Osweiler impressed many across the league with his play. "It's a very fortunate situation to come into a place and get drafted here".
