In what may be the biggest trade of the NFL trade deadline deals, the New England Patriots have sent quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo to the San Francisco 49ers, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter. The move sends the heir apparent to Tom Brady to the 49ers, who have already used two different quarterbacks this year as they search for an end to their 0-7 start.

A second round pick of the Patriots in 2014, Garoppolo has appeared in 17 games, with two starts, throwing for 690 yards on 63-for-94 passing with five touchdowns and no interceptions. He has a 106.2 career passer rating in his limited appearances.

In return, the Patriots will receive the 49ers’ 2018 second-round draft pick.

The 49ers have used both Brian Hoyer and C.J. Beathard this season. They are a combined 174-for-273 for 2,109 yards with 14 touchdowns and five interceptions. They have a 96.8 passer rating.
