Patriots welcome newest quarterback

Posted: Updated:
FOXBORO, Mass. (WHDH) - The New England Patriots have officially welcomed their newest quarterback.

Second round draft pick Jimmy Garoppolo spoke to reporters at Gillette Tuesday.

He says it's a thrill knowing he is on the same team as Tom Brady and Ryan Mallett.

"Just the way Tom has poise in the pocket, the way he throws the ball, it's pretty picture perfect, if you ask me. Just to learn as much as I can from him and Ryan from a short period of time," Garoppolo said.

He added that he hopes to learn everything he can from them.

"They're two guys who have been in the league for a very long time and both have been successful quarterbacks in this league, so that's what I'm trying to become," Garoppolo said. "They both have a tremendous amount of knowledge they can share with me and I'm trying to pick up every little nugget I can."
