The New England Patriots are still interested in trading quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo, but they have a very high asking price according to NFL.com’s Mike Garafolo.

Garafolo reported the Patriots are seeking a first-round pick in 2017 and a first-round pick in 2018 for Garoppolo.

The Cleveland Browns still have interest in Garoppolo, but Cleveland.com’s Mary Kay Cabot reported the Browns are unlikely to deal two first-round picks for him.

“Despite a report by ESPN that the Patriots won’t trade Jimmy Garoppolo, I’m told that nothing has changed and that teams — including the Browns — will still try to land him,” Cabot wrote.

“One source told me he believes it might take as much as a No. 1 this year and No. 1 next year — which I’m sure the Browns won’t be willing to do. But if New England will accept their No. 12 overall pick and maybe another later selection, I think the Browns would strongly consider that.”

Cabot said a scenario where the Browns end up with Garoppolo and defensive end Myles Garrett would be ideal.

Garoppolo has one year left on his rookie contract.
