The Las Vegas Raiders have found their quarterback after Derek Carr went to the New Orleans Saints. They signed Jimmy Garoppolo to a 3 year, $67.5 million dollar contract reuniting him with coach Josh McDaniels back in the Patriots days. This is a great contract for both sides as Garoppolo looks for a fresh start in a familiar offensive system which he should thrive in. Raiders still have a lot of work to do making this team better.
Josh McDaniels will now have a chance to bring back some of the plays that he had with Garoppolo in New England. They have great offensive talent around Jimmy if healthy but still need to surround him with a little more. Garoppolo will enjoy playing with Davante Adams and Hunter Renfrow. This offense should be improved with the other moves they might make and if everyone stays healthy it could be a playoff team.
Jimmy Garoppolo brings a winning attitude, works hard everyday, wants to help his teammates get better, a leader and does great things in his community. The Raider fans will love him right away if this team win games from the start. They got a B plus for this move look for him to live up to the contract. I still expect them to get another quarterback in the draft and learn underneath Garoppolo.
The Las Vegas Raiders still need to improve their defense and most likely offensive line also. Congrats to Garoppolo on the contract and his new opportunity with Raiders.
