It seems the Patriots will only trade Jimmy Garoppolo if they get a good enough reason to do so, and it appears that might actually happen.

According to Mike Freeman of Bleacher Report, multiple league executives believe several teams are preparing to make blockbuster offers for Garoppolo.

They believe a draft shakeup is coming and that it will involve Garoppolo. The report adds many around the league believe Garoppolo can be a franchise quarterback and is worth at least a first-round pick.

Teams who likely are interested in Garoppolo include the Browns, Bears, 49ers and Texans.

With teams gathering at the NFL combine next week, Garoppolo could be a big topic with teams potentially discussing potential offers with the Patriots.

Former Patriots cornerback Darrelle Revis may have lost a step for the Jets last season, but apparently he is still not to be messed with off the field.

According to Pittsburgh TV station WTAE, Revis is being investigated about weekend altercation and could face felony charges.

According to WTAE, a police officer saw Revis talking to two men on Pittsburgh’s trendy South Side. When the officer returned, the two men were unconscious.

One of them reportedly shot a cellphone video of the altercation, which Revis attempted to delete.

Revis’s attorney, Blaine Jones, told WTAE that Revis was a victim.

“Mr. Revis came home to Pittsburgh this past weekend to visit family and friends. During that time, Mr. Revis went by a location in the South Side that he is in the process of developing,” Jones said in the email. “Mr. Revis was physically assaulted while at that location by a group of at least five people. Mr. Revis feared for his safety and retreated from the aggressors.”

[UPDATE 7:30 p.m.]: Pittsburgh police have released a statement saying charges are pending against Revis. Those include: include robbery, terroristic threats, conspiracy and aggravated assault.

According to the statement, police found a 21-year old man and a 22-year old man unconscious around 2:40 a.m. last Sunday morning and after reviewing cellphone video police confirmed that Revis had an altercation with those men on the sidewalk. The police statement said those men remember encountering Revis and having a verbal argument but woke up after being punched.

According to Jeff Howe of the Boston Herald, Tom Brady and the Patriots have expressed mutual interest in a new contract. These are very early talks and nothing appears imminent.

The quarterback is signed through 2019 after he extended his contract last year. He’s set to make just $1 million in cash in 2017, but has a $14 million cap hit. His cap hits go up in 2018 and 2019 as in those years he will count $22 million against the camp.

The Patriots and Brady seemed to be in a pattern of redoing his contract every two years, but given the season he just had, perhaps the quarterback wants more than just $1 million in cash next year.

Also, with the quarterback expecting to play into his 40s, the team could also want to redo his deal so he doesn’t count for $22 million against the cap in both 2018 and 2019.
