If the first few days of OTAs are any indication of the future, the Patriots are in trouble for the first 4 games of next season while Brady serves his suspension. Yesterday, Jimmy Garoppolo, Brady’s replacement for those games, tossed 5 interceptions in practice.
The New England Patriots were reminded Thursday of the wide chasm between the Super Bowl MVP and the quarterback who will open the season under center while Tom Brady serves his four-game suspension.
Against a secondary no longer featuring its top three cornerbacks from a year ago, backup Jimmy Garoppolo uncorked a whopping five interceptions.
Four of those picks came in the all-important two-minute drill. For comparison purposes, the Boston Herald marked Brady as 14-of-15 with one drop in the same drill.
