  • Rams Agree With Jimmy Garoppolo On One-Year Deal

    The Los Angeles Rams agreed to terms with free-agent quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo on an undisclosed one-year deal on Friday, according to sources. Following his disastrous year with the Las Vegas Raiders in 2023, Jimmy G is now set to join the Rams for one season as Matthew Stafford's backup. Garoppolo must first serve a two-games suspension to start the year for performance-enhancing drugs, but then he will be holding a clipboard on the sidelines with the Rams. The 32-year-old signal-caller played in seven games with the Raiders last year before getting hurt and eventually benched for rookie Aidan O'Connell, going 110-for-169 for 1,205 yards, seven touchdowns and nine interceptions. Pretty much all of the fantasy value that Jimmy G had going into last season is now gone.

  • Jimmy Garoppolo Drawing Some Interest

    The Las Vegas Raiders are expected to officially release quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo when the new league year opens on Wednesday, according to sources, and there are a few teams interested in signing him. The 32-year-old veteran signal-caller is coming off a rough season with the Raiders in 2023, as he only played in seven games (six starts) and threw for 1,205 yards, seven touchdowns and nine interceptions. Jimmy G will also be forced to miss the first two games in 2024 following a performance-enhancing drug suspension. At best, Garoppolo could latch on with an organization that plans to use him as a veteran bridge at the position to help ease a rookie QB in. Garoppolo could also be signed strictly to serve in a backup role next season.

  • Raiders In The Market For A QB In 2024

    The Las Vegas Raiders have been in the market for a new quarterback for the 2024 season, with a potential move up in this year's NFL draft while also looking into the position in free agency. Moving on from Jimmy Garoppolo, who was handed down a two-game suspension on Friday for a performance-enhancing drug violation, was always the plan. Rookie Aidan O'Connell filled in admirably for the Raiders after taking over for the benched Garoppolo last year, but the Raiders don't feel that he's the answer long-term. O'Connell threw for 2,218 yards, 12 touchdowns and seven interceptions after being drafted in the fourth round. As things stand now, the Raiders have the 13th overall pick in the first round of the 2024 draft.

  • Jimmy Garoppolo Suspended Two Games For PEDs

    Las Vegas Raiders quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo is being suspended for two games for violating the league's performance-enhancing substances policy, according to league sources. The policy violation is related to him using a prescribed medication without having a valid therapeutic use exemption, according to sources. NFL Network's Ian Rapoport is reporting that Garoppolo is headed for his release after the news. Even if the 32-year-old wasn't suspended, he likely would have been released this offseason anyway after being benched for rookie Aidan O'Connell in 2023. The Raiders will avoid having to pay him an $11.25 million roster bonus if they cut him before March 17. Jimmy G threw for 1,205 yards, seven TDs and nine interceptions in seven games (six starts) in his first and last year in Vegas.

  • Jimmy Garoppolo Feeling Healthy

    Las Vegas Raiders quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo, who was benched in favor of rookie Aidan O'Connell after head coach Josh McDaniels and general manager Dave Ziegler were fired at the end of October, said he's finally feeling healthy after dealing with a concussion and a back injury that caused him to miss some games in 2023 before ultimately being benched. Garoppolo finished with 1,205 passing yards, seven touchdowns and nine interceptions in his first year in Vegas. His 65.1 completion percentage was the lowest of his career, as were his passer rating (77.7), QBR (34.2) and interception percentage (5.3). Jimmy G said he's feeling healthy heading into the offseason, but there is uncertainty regarding his future. His contract makes him an unlikely trade candidate, and if the Raiders release him, they would absorb a salary cap hit of $28.3 million for 2024. It would make more sense if they designate him as a post-June 1 cut.
