Jimmy Garoppolo deflecting Brady successor talk

Jimmy Garoppolo is now part of the New England Patriots organization and the talk about him taking over for Tom Brady will begin. Everyone wants to know how he will deal with the new digs, but he is not going to just deflect the questions at this point:

“I haven’t thought about it too much to be honest,” Garoppolo told CSN New England. “My main thing is, I’m a rookie. I haven’t earned any stripes. I haven’t done anything on the field. We had our first practice yesterday, just the rookies. I still have a long way to go with that just to begin with.” – NFL.com

So far he is doing a good job of not answering any questions. He will get his time in front of the camera for a little, but in the end he still is the backup to Brady and will just hide behind the clipboard until his time is up to take the football.
