Nobody knows how this Pats QB is going to turn out Dan Leberfeld

In a league where so many teams are looking for an answer at QB, New England Patriots backup QB Jimmy Garoppolo will be the flavor of the month this off-season.

There are rumors the Cleveland Browns love him and will look to trade for him.

Others teams will be interested.

But here is the deal – nobody knows if he is a viable long-term answer.

He has started two NFL games, at the beginning of this season during Tom Brady’s four-game suspension, and then got hurt, and his four-game audition turned into just a pair of contests.

It’s a grey area if he’s a long-term answer for some team. It’s pure guesswork.

Just like it was for Houston when they signed former Denver QB Brock Osweiler to a four-year, $72 million deal with $37 million guaranteed last off-season. He was benched last week for Tom Savage.

Garoppolo might turn out to be a very good starter, but may the buyer beware.

Nobody knows for sure.
