Jimmy Garoppolo said so long to New England Friday, posting a mysterious message on Instagram.
The backup quarterback posted a photo of himself around 4 a.m., with a caption that read: ‘So grateful for my time in New England. Peace out Boston.’
The post sent the football world into an early-morning frenzy, but Garoppolo’s agent claims he was hacked.
As of Friday morning, there have been no confirmed reports that Garoppolo is being traded. He removed the post around 9:00 a.m.
The 25-year-old’s agent, Don Yee, told 7News that “Jimmy’s social media account was hacked.”
But it is not just Instagram that saw a change. Garoppolo also edited his Twitter bio, removing a reference to the Patriots.
The Patriots have offered no comment on the situation, saying the don’t deal with social media controversy.
It’s been rumored that the Patriots are asking for multiple first-round picks in exchange for Garoppolo.
