San Francisco 49ers quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo plans to sign with the Las Vegas Raiders. Garoppolo agreed to a three-year, $67.5 million deal, including $34 million guaranteed, a source told Schefter. He will be reunited with Raiders coach Josh McDaniels, who served as the Patriots’ offensive coordinator during Garoppolo’s three years in New England.
The Raiders released longtime starter Derek Carr last month, and Jarrett Stidham, the quarterback who replaced Carr as the starter for the final two games of last season, is expected to sign a two-year contract with the Denver Broncos to back up Russell Wilson.
Garoppolo spent the past five-plus seasons with the 49years after they acquired him in an October 2017 trade with the Patriots. Upon arrival, Garoppolo led the Niners to five straight wins to close that season, earning him a five-year, $137.5 million deal that, at the time, made him the highest-paid player in the league.
The deal reunites Garoppolo with Raiders head coach Josh McDaniels, who coached Jimmy G as the offensive coordinator in New England at the start of the quarterback’s NFL career from 2014 into 2017. The Patriots won two Super Bowls during Garoppolo’s stint there as Tom Brady’s backup. Now, the Raiders hope he can bring a championship to Las Vegas, which just so happens to be the site of Super Bowl LVIII next February.
As the 49ers’ starter, Garoppolo had a 38-17 record and won four of his six playoff games with San Francisco. He brought winning football back to the Bay after several down years, and for that, the 49ers Faithful certainly will be forever thankful.
When San Francisco starter Trey Lance suffered a broken right ankle in Week 2, Garoppolo reclaimed the starting job and was amid one of his best stretches of football before breaking his left foot on Dec. 4 against the Miami Dolphins.
In his time in San Francisco, Garoppolo threw for 13,599 yards and 82 touchdowns with 42 interceptions while completing 67.6% of his passes. In his 63 starts (including the playoffs), the Niners went 44-19.
Garoppolo missed 30 games with various ankle, shoulder, thumb and knee injuries after becoming the Niners’ starter. The Raiders on Monday also reached a two-year, $12 million deal with safety Marcus Epps that includes about $8 million guaranteed Jeremy Fowler. This addresses a weak link in their defense — the secondary. Epps played a team-high 1,058 defensive snaps last season for the NFC champion Philadelphia Eagles. With 94 tackles, a career-best six passes defensed and a forced fumble in a career-high 17 starts, Epps should be a fine complement to free safety Tre’von Moehrig as the last line of Las Vegas’ defense.
In addition, a source confirmed to Paul Gutierrez that the Raiders are bringing back a familiar face in cornerback Brandon Facyson, who played for Las Vegas in 2021 and spent last season in Indianapolis, where he started four of 16 games for the Colts and had six passes defensed.
