Life is good for Jimmy Garopollo. After toiling in Tom Brady’s shadow for three years, the quarterback was shipped off to the 49ers last year, upgrading New England for the Bay Area in the process.

Once trades become official Wednesday, Aqib Talib will be off to the West Coast to begin a new chapter in his career with the Los Angeles Rams .

He’ll be joining a secondary that features another newcomer in cornerback Marcus Peters (also acquired via trade) and one of the league’s better safeties in Lamarcus Joyner , who received the franchise tag.
