Raiders signing former 49ers QB Jimmy Garoppolo to a 3-year, $72.75 million deal

Mar 13, 2023 at 10:53 AM--

According to ESPN's Adam Schefter and Dianna Russini, the Las Vegas Raiders are signing former San Francisco 49ers starting quarterback and unrestricted free agent Jimmy Garoppolo to a three-year deal. The move reunites Garoppolo with Raiders head coach Josh McDaniels, the former New England Patriots offensive coordinator (2006-08, 2012-21).

Schefter initially reported the contract to be worth up to $67.5 million with $34 million guaranteed. However, NFL Media's Tom Pelissero reports that it is actually worth a maximum of $72.75 million.

The Patriots made Garoppolo (6-2, 225) a second-round selection (No. 62 overall) out of Eastern Illinois in 2014. He completed 207-of-308 attempts (67.2 percent) for 2,437 yards with 16 touchdowns and four interceptions through 11 game appearances (10 starts) with the 49ers last season, per Pro Football Reference.

In 2017, San Francisco acquired Garoppolo via a trade with the Patriots. He was the 49ers' starter until this past season when Trey Lance took over the role. Lance's season-ending ankle injury during Week 2 thrust Garoppolo back into the starting lineup.

Garoppolo lasted until Week 13, when he sustained a broken foot, creating an opportunity for rookie quarterback Brock Purdy to start. Purdy helped guide the 49ers to the NFC Championship Game.

Garoppolo, 31, has completed 67.6 percent of his passes for 14,289 yards with 87 touchdowns and 42 interceptions in 74 game appearances (57 starts) through his nine NFL seasons with the Patriots and 49ers.

Why John Lynch believes 49ers QB Brock Purdy is the "real deal"

Over the offseason, there has been significant talk surrounding the San Francisco 49ers and their quarterbacks, especially after the team signed Sam Darnold in free agency, providing them three capable options with starting experience in the former Carolina Panther, Brock Purdy, and Trey Lance. Purdy is evidently the leader in the clubhouse, as stated by general manager John Lynch and head coach Kyle Shanahan several times this offseason, but many have pointed out his flaws, such as the inability to make throws downfield, as a reason why one of the other quarterbacks could win over the starting job with a strong performance in organized team activities(OTAs) and training camp. What do the 49ers believe about Purdy's downfield ability? General manager

Second-year receiver Danny Gray could be the missing piece for the 49ers

San Francisco 49ers second-year wide receiver Danny Gray hopes to improve from a disappointing rookie season and build upon his improvements from organized team activities (OTAs). If Gray can get more playing time, his 4.33-second 40-time could be what a high-powered 49ers offense is missing, a receiver that can stretch opposing defenses and free up Deebo Samuel and Brandon Aiyuk, arguably the best wide receiver duo in the NFL. At a June 6th press conference, 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan said the Gray has gotten a lot better from where he left off last season. "I think Danny learned from his first year, just how long that grind is of a rookie year, just going from the offseason of the combine and all the workouts to getting here and really never
