Bill Belichick says keeping Jimmy Garoppolo and Tom Brady was 'not sustainable'

Jimmy Garoppolo is headed to San Francisco

According to sources, the New England Patriots traded former Eastern Illinois quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo to the San Francisco 49ers for a 2018 second-round draft pick.

Garoppolo was supposed to be the future quarterback of the Patriots, but the problem is Tom Brady is leading a life like Benjamin Button - he is aging in reverse!

Belichick praised Garoppolo, whom he drafted in the second round in 2014. He has played in 17 games in three seasons with the Patriots, including two starts in 2016 while Brady was serving a four-game suspension.

With the trade deadline today, Belichick said this was the "last window" for the Patriots to make a move with Garoppolo and still recoup value for him.

This story will be updated. The young quarterback completed 42-of-59 passes (71.2 percent) for 496 yards and four touchdowns in just a game and a half before having to leave during the second quarter of New England's 31-24 Week 2 win over the Miami Dolphins with a shoulder injury.

CBS Local Sports: This trade also represents the New England Patriots going all-in with Tom Brady. I met with him weekly.

In acquiring Garoppolo, general manager John Lynch, head coach Kyle Shanahan, and the entire 49ers organization hope they have finally found the franchise quarterback they have been in search of for years. He's playing well once again this year. I would not count anything out with Malcolm Butler right now - he's gonna test the market next year, no question, but if he doesn't like the offers that are out there, I absolutely could see a scenario where he returns to the Patriots.

"There is certainly some surprise involved, only because the National Football League does not often lead to major trades, although the Patriots probably are as trade happy as any team aside of the Philadelphia Eagles", he said. Yet Brady remains one of the best quarterbacks in the NFL. They desperately need help on defense, and if they're going to get Brady one more ring, they'll need to look for outside help. Yes it is a little bit of a risk.

The Patriots are reportedly already shopping that newly acquired pick. Maybe the thought process on the part of the Patriots was "Let's get something for Garoppolo while we still can".
