The New England Patriots stunned the NFL world on Monday when they traded Jimmy Garoppolo to the San Francisco 49ers and made yet another long-term commitment to the 40-year-old Tom Brady.

The trade marked the fifth time since Brady took over as the Patriots’ starting quarterback that the team traded away one of his backups. Several others left as free agents.

While there are high hopes for Garoppolo in San Francisco, the track record for former Brady backups is less than stellar. Below we take a look at what happened to every notable Patriots backup quarterback during the Brady era.

Drew Bledsoe was drafted by the Patriots as the first pick in the 1993 draft and served as their starting quarterback for nine seasons. He signed a then-record 10-year, $103 million contract extension in 2001, nine months after the Patriots drafted Tom Brady, but he lost his job to Brady early in the next season when he ruptured a blood vessel in his chest. He returned from the injury but did not regain his starting job in New England.

Bledsoe was traded to the Buffalo Bills after the season for a first-round pick. He spent the next five seasons with the Bills and the Dallas Cowboys, going 35-35 as a starter. He now owns the Doubleback Winery in Walla Walla, Washington, with his wife.
