Jimmy Garoppolo’s instagram feed has been blowing up after a post implied he was leaving the New England Patriots. Turns out the post was a prank and Garoppolo isn’t necessarily leaving.
The Houston Texans released their QB Brock Osweiler (and a 2017 6th round draft pick and a 2018 2nd round pick) in exchange for a 2017 4th round pick from the Cleveland Browns. Osweiler has a $16 million guaranteed salary, so getting rid of him frees up cap space. The Browns may flip Osweiler again (and gain another draft pick) to another team needing a backup QB. Bottom line is Osweiler shouldn’t unpack anytime soon.
In other free agency moves, the Chicago Bears released QB Jay Cutler, and the New York Jets seem interested in picking him up.
It looks as if the Dallas Cowboys will now trade QB Tony Romo instead of releasing him. The newly QB-free Houston Texans could be potential buyers.
