ESPN NFL insider Adam Schefter joined Ordway, Merloni & Fauria on Wednesday to discuss his report of the Patriots not expecting to trade Jimmy Garoppolo. To hear the interview, go to the Ordway, Merloni & Fauria audio on demand page.

Schefter believes the Patriots will hold on to Garoppolo and thus go into 2017 with three quarterbacks — Garoppolo, Tom Brady and Jacoby Brissett.

“This is nothing about smoke, this is nothing about leverage, this is nothing about them not getting the price they wanted. This is about one thing plain and simple: They really like Jimmy Garoppolo and they don’t want to get rid of Jimmy Garoppolo,” Schefter said. “They think that good, young quarterbacks in this league are tough to come by. It is the most valuable commodity there is. If you don’t have a good young quarterback, you are doomed.

“Again, Tom Brady is 40 years old. He’s been able to do it for an awful long time and again, I think they would love to see him do it for 10 more years, but who knows how much longer he is going to play for.”

“This is not about them not getting the price they wanted,” he added. “This is not about them trying to increase the leverage. I want to be very clear: They really like the player.”

Schefter was then pressed on how the Patriots could still get blown away by a potential offer from another team and it was then he doubled-down on his report, saying no matter what the Patriots get offered, he is not getting traded.

“You guys can keep it alive and keep talking about it and keep wondering, but I am just telling you Jimmy Garoppolo is going to be on the Patriots in 2017 no matter who calls them and what anybody offers,” Schefter said. “He’s going to be on their roster this summer.”

Keeping Garoppolo is to make sure the team is set at the quarterback position for the long run and Schefter noted noting his guaranteed with Brady considering he is turning 40 years old next summer.

Tom Brady posts picture of his awful high school haircut 02.28.17 at 2:46 pm ET

Tom Brady has sported a variety of hairstyles over the years. None of them have been worse than what he was rocking back in his high school days.

In a Facebook post Tuesday, Brady shared one of his class pictures from Junipero Serra High School, where he attended from 1991-1995. It’s safe to say he was far from a fashionista back then.

Brady’s look has evolved in the eight years he’s been married to supermodel Gisele Bündchen. Look no further than his haircut. It used to be atrocious, but now, it’s a trend-setter.

Last week it was learned Tom Brady will have a movie and book come out about him centered around his life post-Deflategate and Super Bowl LI.

Paul Tamasy and Eric Johnson, the writers behind Disney’s “The Finest Hours” and who were nominated for an Oscar for “The Fighter”, along with New York Times bestselling author Casey Sherman, are the ones heading the project.

Dave Wedge, who was Sherman’s co-author with “Boston Strong” will also be part of the book.

After the report was released, many wondered if Brady himself would be part of it, and the answer to that is no.

“We wish the people involved the best of luck on this project, but we are not involved,” Brady’s agent Don Yee told the Associated Press on Thursday.

The book is said to have the title, “Let’s go” and the movie is tentatively scheduled to be released in 2018, but it is unclear at this time who will participate in the film.

Aaron Rodgers acknowledges Tom Brady is the G.O.A.T 02.23.17 at 1:32 pm ET

Aaron Rodgers and Tom Brady are arguably the two best quarterbacks in the league, but Rodgers may have conceded Brady is a little better than he is.

Speaking with Graham Bensinger for “In Depth with Graham” at the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am earlier this month, Rodgers said Brady didn’t need the win in Super Bowl LI to prove he is the greatest of all-time.

“From a fan’s perspective, what a great game to watch and to see Tom and his greatness on display one more time,” Rodgers said. “I mean, he didn’t need to win that to prove that he’s the G.O.A.T., but just another part of his legacy there.”

The Packers quarterback watched the game and said he felt bad for Matt Ryan and the Falcons.

“Fantastic Super Bowl,” Rodgers said. “I felt bad for Matt. Getting to know him over the years, he is a fantastic guy; he had an incredible MVP season and sitting there 28-3 I think everybody watching and probably at the game was thinking ‘Atlanta’s gonna get their ring sized up here pretty soon.’ So that was disappointing.”

Patriots owner Robert Kraft will join Andrea Kremer on HBO’s “Real Sports with Bryant Gumbel” that premieres Tuesday night and prior to the airing a sneak preview was released.

The preview showed Kraft getting asked about Deflategate and if he holds a grudge towards the league.

“I really don’t hold grudges,” Kraft said. “I mean, I remember everything, but I move on.”

Added Kraft: “Envy and jealousy are incurable diseases. The haters still hate. And I understand it, and we’ll do our best to keep them in that position.”

Kraft also defended Tom Brady, who obviously Deflategate centered around.

“He’s just not the greatest quarterback in the history of the NFL,” Kraft said. “He’s an amazing human being. And is genuine. And as nice as everybody thinks he is, he’s nicer. And to see anyone attack him as an individual or his integrity. And that just wasn’t fair.”

The complete interview will air Tuesday at 10 p.m. on HBO.
