Franchise quarterback Tom Brady was the only quarterback on the Patriots' roster after the team traded Garoppolo and third-stringer Jacoby Brissett to the Colts for wide receiver Phillip Dorsett in September.

Damien Woody floated out a history refresher after the New England Patriots traded Jimmy Garoppolo to the San Francisco 49ers for a second-round pick. Hoyer now returns to back up a quarterback in Brady that has been one of the most durable signal callers in the league during his career. According to Pelissero's colleague Ian Rapoport, the Green Bay Packers were trying to convince Hoyer to sign with them instead.

The 25-year-old Garoppolo has two National Football League starts to his name, completing 71.2 percent of his passes for 496 yards, four touchdowns, and no interceptions en route to wins over the Arizona Cardinals and Miami Dolphins a year ago.

The police were led to believe that the milk was contaminated due to a lizard falling in the container. Instead it was turned into a batch of lassi , a yogurt drink, and served to his extended family.

New England fans, known for their measured perspective on sports, took the news well. "He's got obviously some years in our system and our terminology", McDaniels said.

In that duration, he has started 37 times and has a 16-21 record.

McDaniels said he wishes nothing but the best for Garoppolo. "He had a few opportunities here and he did a good job with them, which is why he's earned the opportunity that he has now".
