QB Jimmy Garappolo is moving to the Las Vegas Raiders
Training camp will be significantly less awkward for that San Francisco 49ers this summer. There will be no Jimmy Garoppolo throwing at a long range with a trainer while the rest of the team prepares for the season. Garoppolo will practice with the a few hundred miles inland during training camp Las Vegas robbers.
The message was first broken by NFL Network’s Mike Garafolo. ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported on the contract details. It’s a three-year, $67.5 million deal with $34 million guaranteed.
This isn’t quite the five-year, $137.5 million deal — $74 million guaranteed — that Garoppolo signed with the 49ers in 2018. However, it gives him an opportunity for a fresh start with the Raiders.
Garoppolo wasn’t supposed to return to the 49ers last season, but there wasn’t a market for his quarterback services. He restructured his contract and returned to the team. Trey Lance suffered an injury late in the season and Garoppolo had it insulting buzz with his fast passing game, until the injury virus grabbed him too.
Now the 49ers can move on, and Garoppolo is likely to be named the Day 1 starter again.
