The Houston Texans are exploring options to trade for Jimmy Garoppolo with multiple picks in this draft
This is something that just popped up in my email and the timing of Romo’s announcement to retire and go into broadcasting adds some potential to this one.
General manager Rick Smith and head coach Bill O’Brien are both of the mindset that a chance for a deep playoff run is within reach, but going into the 2017 season with either a rookie quarterback or Tom Savage may kill that possibility.
I’m not sure how much stock to put into this rumor as there doesn’t seem to be a lot of connection between the Texans and Jimmy G, but it does make sense considering where they make a selection in the first and the impact that having a quality quarterback would have for their playoff aspirations.
I’m going to file this one under ‘long shots’, but I would be in agreement with Houston making a run at Garoppolo.
