Eastern Illinois quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo said he had an informal meeting with the Browns and expected to have a formal interview with them at the NFL Scouting Combine.
At Athletes’ Performance Institute in Los Angeles, Garoppolo spent three days over two weeks working with former Browns quarterback Ty Detmer as they try to improve his footwork and mechanics of his quick release.
“He broke down the game for me. He taught me things that I really had no clue about the game until he explained it,” Garoppolo said today. “Then you’re like, ‘Oh, why didn’t I think about that a long time ago?’ Just how the fronts and linebackers tie into the coverages, how different offensive formations dictate coverages. He worked with me in the pocket, getting me used to the 3-5 and seven-step drop. He’s done a great job with me, really.”
