The Raiders are closing in on a deal with QB Jimmy Garoppolo, sources say. After six seasons and a Super Bowl appearance with the #49ers, Jimmy G is on his way to Vegas, the site of this season’s Super Bowl, to reunite with Josh McDaniels.
Schefter: Raiders are giving former 49ers’ QB Jimmy Garoppolo a three-year, $67.5 million deal, including $34 million guaranteed, per source.
This is a good landing spot for Garoppolo, who is set to start for the Raiders in 2023. This almost certainly takes the Raiders out of the running for Aaron Rodgers, but Las Vegas hasn't seem to interested in Rodgers in the last few weeks. Davante Adams, Darren Waller and Hunter Renfrow form a good receiving corps, so Garoppolo will have some QB2/streaming appeal in 2023.
