Patriots hold onto Garoppolo, finally take DE Derek Rivers

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) The defending Super Bowl champion New England Patriots held on to coveted backup quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo through the first three rounds of the NFL draft, choosing instead to make a couple of minor deals on Friday night and pick up help on the offensive and defensive lines.

Spurning offers for Garoppolo, who won't play in New England unless Tom Brady is injured or retires, Patriots coach Bill Belichick waited out the first seven hours of the draft. Asked how close he came to trading Garoppolo - the Cleveland Browns were one suitor - Belichick declined to say.

"I'm not going to comment on anybody's ...," he said. "Everybody that's on the team is here to compete, and that's what we're going to do."
