The NFL Trade Deadline is typically a bit of a letdown, but not this year.
Within a span of a few hours on Monday night, left tackle Duane Brown was traded from the Houston Texans to the Seattle Seahawks before quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo was sent from the New England Patriots to the San Francisco 49ers.
Brown will undoubtedly have the bigger impact on 2017, but the ripple effect from the Garoppolo trade is significantly more interesting. There were rumors involving Garoppolo being traded during the offseason, but those died off when the Patriots instead traded Jacoby Brissett to the Indianapolis Colts.
