-- It turns out Bill Belichick is not the only member of the Patriots organization who still exchanges texts with Jimmy Garoppolo.
During an appearance on Freakonomics Radio's The Hidden Side of Sports, Garoppolo said he and Tom Brady are still in touch.
"We always had a good relationship,” the 49ers quarterback said. “Initially when I was younger, kind of like an older brother type of relationship, but as I got older and matured through the NFL, we became closer and we became good friends. You know, we still text here and there. Jacoby was a good friend of mine, too.”
"So, the three of us always were texting each other,” he continued. “Everyone said it was a terrible decision to have the same agent (Don Yee), but I think it worked out very well. Our agents look out for both of us, both of our best interest. But at the end of the day it's the NFL. It's a business."
The 49ers and the Patriots are both 1-1 so far this season, with Garoppolo's first NFL loss as quarterback coming in Week 1 against the Vikings.
-- The Cleveland Browns won their first game since 2016 on Thursday night and the celebrations commenced immediately.
