Patriots Deal Garoppolo to 49ers

No, seriously, this is a thing that is happening. After allegedly spending the 2017 offseason turning down offers of first-round picks for their backup quarterback/Brady heir apparent, the Patriots pulled the trigger tonight on a deal to send Garoppolo to San Francisco for the 49ers' second-round pick. It's going to be a very high pick in that round. I have so many questions. Why now and not before the 2017 draft? Have they finally decided that Brady is serious about playing until he's 45, but they didn't think he was serious before?

UPDATE: Terms of Duane Brown Trade Change

Offensive line continuity is nice but guys who can actually play are nicer. The Seahawks make a nice upgrade to their biggest weakness by dealing for disgruntled Texans left tackle Duane Brown. Details still to be announced. The Texans, I guess, made the decision they were not going to pay what Brown wanted in a new contract. He's currently supposed to make $9.75 million in 2018, the last year of his old deal, and wants a new one.

Bills Trade Marcell Dareus to Jacksonville

Surprising move for a pair of surprising teams this year: the 4-2 Buffalo Bills have traded defensive tackle Marcell Dareus to the 4-3 Jacksonville Jaguars for a sixth-round pick in 2018. ESPN's Adam Schefter is reporting the pick could be a fifth-rounder based on Dareus' performance.

Monday Morning Digest: Who Can Win Post-Rodgers?

With Aaron Rodgers probably done for the year and the Kansas City Chiefs looking like the Chiefs again, are we back to a default of the New England Patriots solving their defensive issues to become Super Bowl champions? Who can emerge when the playoff picture has been thrown into such disarray? Also, jokes about how the Arizona Cardinals have a lot of old guys.
