By all accounts, Belichick didn't want to trade him.

Doesn't matter, he made the trade which was basically the steal of the century.

Yea I beliee it will be the worst trade in history... And I'm not trying to be overdramatic I genuinely believe it. If JImmy G continues he has HOF written all over him. I mean his release,footwork, timing, defense recognition, manipulating leverage (both vertical and horizontal) it's a top 5 in the NFL right now... His play is impressive.

So what do you think happened? He was told to make a trade he didn't want to make and then he purposefully took less in the trade than he could have received? Nah.

IMO, you gotta trade him to the NFC*, and you have to assume nobody in the NFC was offering more than a 2nd rounder (which was looking like it would be a top 35 pick at the time).

*Cardinals and 49ers were really the only two plausible teams to make a big trade for a QB.

Uh yeah, thats exactly what happened. But then of course I would expect a Broncos fan to know all about this. They were shopping Garoppolo for multiple picks last spring, they had already set the market then unloaded him for a second round pick and the front office reportedly reacted with "shock."

Right, because Broncos fans can't possibly follow a national story? I know all about the Browns talk, but you'd still be trading to an AFC opponent. If he is truly an elite QB, then trading him within your conference would make this trade worse than it currently is.

The market in the spring is not the same thing as the market in the fall*. BB resisted making the trade when there was more available.

Can you give an explanation as to why he didn't get more? If you can't, then I believe you have to assume that was all that was available.

The front office was shocked? How does the deal get done without the front office? The dynamic of the front office are something a Broncos fan needs explained.

*For example, the Bears (and maybe Vikings and Rams, eve) were probably interested in March, but not in October.
