I woke up this morning and grabbed my phone to catch up on the social media posts that I missed overnight. Scrolling through Instagram, my stomach dropped a little when I saw this one from back-up QB Jimmy G:

So grateful for my time in New England. Peace out Boston ✌🏻

Quickly I turned on ESPN only to be informed that Jimmy's account was hacked, Garoppolo told ESPN's Mike Reiss that he believed it was a "prank" or "hoax" while adding "not to my knowledge" when asked about a potential trade. The Patriots are keeping him for the 2017 season and possibly beyond. Rest easy Pats fans. Jimmy G is staying put!
