The Friday Sports Report – NFL Rumor Mill


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.

Jimmy GaroppoloGeneral 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.

C.E.O. and lead writer for the Live 4 Sport Network. I started on the journey of draft analysis by ghost writing for an online scouting resource in 2007. It was from that experience that we developed the system we now use for our NFL draft projections, player analysis and fantasy football information. We revised the system in 2011 and it now outperforms the majority of major online draft and fantasy projection sites and consistently identifies players that are either overlooked or overhyped. The Live 4 Sport Network is dedicated to constantly improving our process to always put out the best information possible for draftniks and fantasy football players alike.
