Raiders fill QB wants with Jimmy Garoppolo, sources say

San Francisco 49ers quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo plans to sign with the Las Vegas Raiders, sources told ESPN’s Dianna Russini and Adam Schefter.

Garoppolo has agreed to a three-year, $67.5 million deal, including $34 million guaranteed, a source told Schefter. He played for Raiders head coach Josh McDaniels with the New England Patriots and they will now reunite in Las Vegas.

The Raiders fired longtime starter Derek Carr last month, and Jarrett Stidham, the quarterback who replaced him as a starter for the final two games of last season, is a free agent.

Garoppolo has spent the last more than five seasons with the 49ers after signing him to the New England Patriots in October 2017. Upon his arrival, Garoppolo led the Niners to five straight wins to finish that season and earned him a five-year, $137.5 million contract that made him the highest-paid player in the league at the time.

From there, Garoppolo enjoyed many highs — including a career-best season that saw the Niners go to Super Bowl LIV — and his share of lows, most of which were the result of injuries.

Garoppolo, 31, played last season on a revised one-year contract that prevented the Niners from using the franchise tag this offseason after San Francisco spent last offseason trading it. A right shoulder injury prevented the Niners from finding a trading partner, resulting in Garoppolo agreeing to stay.

When San Francisco starter Trey Lance suffered a broken right ankle in Week 2, Garoppolo reclaimed the starting job and found himself in the midst of one of his best football stretches before breaking his left foot against the Miami Dolphins on December 4.

During his time in San Francisco, Garoppolo threw for 13,599 yards with 82 touchdowns and 42 interceptions while completing 67.6% of his passes. He started 63 games, including the playoffs, with the Niners going 42-19 in those contests.

Garoppolo missed 30 games with various ankle, shoulder, thumb and knee injuries after becoming the Niners’ starter.
