The journey to Super Bowl 51 glory starts today with the first whistles of New England Patriots training camp. Below you will find the first of several final roster predictions as we navigate through Patriots training camp over the next month.
We start with the quarterbacks:
Quarterbacks (2): Jimmy Garoppolo, Jacoby Brissett
Of course, there is a name missing from this list that would normally be present. You know, a pretty big name. But until October, Tom Brady will not be a factor in the Patriots’ game plan, leaving these two young gunslingers alone to duke it out.
The smart money is on Garoppolo because he has earned his keep having studied under Brady for two whole seasons. But Brissett deserves a chance to prove his worth. Mobility, a strong arm and accuracy are Brissett’s calling cards, and if those carry over into the pros, he could be quite the force. It will be fun to watch as these two compete in training camp and in preseason games.
