Raiders sign Jimmy Garoppolo

According to spotrac.com on Monday, the Las Vegas Raiders have signed quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo of Arlington Heights, Illinois to a three-year deal worth $72.75 million. The Raiders will be the third NFL team for Garoppolo following three seasons with the New England Patriots from 2014 to 2016, and six seasons with the San Francisco 49ers from 2017 to 2022. Garoppolo was on the Chiefs team that reached the Super Bowl in 2020, but lost 31-20 to the San Francisco 49ers.

This past season, Garoppolo completed 207 of 308 passes for 2437 yards. He had 16 touchdown passes and four interceptions. Garoppolo also had 23 rushes for 33 yards and two more touchdowns.

It is clear the Raiders are going into a different direction at quarterback. They released Derek Carr, who eventually signed with the New Orleans Saints.

Four more quarterbacks switched teams. To replace Garoppolo as a backup to Brock Purdy, the 49ers have signed Sammy Darnold of Capistrano Beach, California to a one year deal worth $4.5 million. Darnold has previously played with the New York Jets and Carolina Panthers. Last season, Darnold completed 82 of 140 passes for 1143 yards, seven touchdowns and three interceptions with the Panthers. He had 26 rushes for 106 yards and two touchdowns.

The Broncos meanwhile have signed Jarrett Stidham of Corbin, Kentucky to a two-year deal worth $10 million. It is expected Stidham will backup Russell Wilson. In 2022, Stidham completed 53 of 83 passes for 656 yards, with four touchdowns and three interceptions. He had 14 rushes for 84 yards. The Broncos are Stidham’s third team following two seasons with the Patriots and one with the Raiders.

The Houston Texans have signed Case Keenum to a two-year deal worth $6.25 million. Keenum is returning to the Texans after playing there in 2013 and 2014. He has also played with the St. Louis/Los Angeles Rams, Minnesota Vikings, Denver Broncos, Washington Redskins, Cleveland Browns, and Buffalo Bills. The native of Abilene, Texas completed two of seven passes for eight yards last season in backing up Josh Allen.

Meanwhile, the Miami Dolphins have signed Mike White of Pembroke Pines, Florida to a two-year deal worth $8 million. White played the last two seasons with the New York Jets. Last season he completed 103 passes in 175 attempts, with three touchdowns and four interceptions. White had six rushes fort nine yards and another major score.
