Post on Jimmy Garoppolo’s Instagram sets off frenzy – ESPN

An early-morning Instagram post on the verified account of Patriots quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo saying farewell to New England sent social media buzzing, but a source close to Garoppolo told ESPN’s Mike Reiss that he believed it was a “hack” or “hoax” while adding “not to my knowledge” when asked about a potential trade.

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

The post went up at roughly 4 a.m. ET.

Sources have told ESPN’s Adam Schefter the Patriots intend to keep Garappolo for 2017 and possibly beyond with Tom Brady turning 40 this summer.

There are “no trade talks” involving Garoppolo and the Cleveland Browns at this time, sources told ESPN’s Josina Anderson.
