What Tom Brady texted Ben Affleck about his pending NFL free agency

At least Ben Affleck tried. The famous actor and celebrity Boston sports fan joined ESPN's "Get Up!" on Tuesday and dropped an interesting nugget: He had just hung out with New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady the night before.

Why 49ers' Jimmy Garoppolo ranks as 15th-best quarterback in NFL

Jimmy Garoppolo once again is just behind Tom Brady, but we're not looking at the New England Patriots' depth chart from 2016. Instead, NFL.com ranked all the signal-callers who started a game in 2019, and the 49ers' quarterback ended up ranked just one spot behind the six-time Super Bowl champion Brady.
