Ryan Mallett was excused from Patriots OTA's on Thursday. That opened up the door for Jimmy Garoppolo to make an impression.

Jeff Howe of the Boston Herald joined Sports Tonight to discuss how the backup quarterback looked during the team event.

"Garoppolo had a really good day," said Howe. "Everyone talks about the quick release, the arm motion. Yeah, that's great. I like his presence at the line of scrimmage, even though it's just a spring practice.

"I really thought he showed his potential as a guy who could really grab that number two [position]… there was a lot to like."
