It was just said today that Jimmy Garopollo will start the final preseason game for the Patriots, and he may play the entire game. A few days ago, the Rams learned they would be without Sam Bradford who suffered an ACL injury in the third preseason game.
Myself, and many others, have now begun to think that St. Louis could be a landing spot for the Patriots back up quarterback. This makes sense. It looks like Jimmy G has surpassed Mallett as the Patriots No. 2 behind Brady, and Mallett might be the best available option for the Rams.
It looks like if they do trade Mallett, it won’t happen until after the final preseason game.
