On Monday, the NFL world learned that Jimmy Garoppolo would be headed to Las Vegas. Mike Garofolo of NFL Network reported that the former San Francisco 49ers quarterback would sign a contract with the Raiders.
It took five days, but that deal is now finally official.
Garofolo tweeted Friday that Garoppolo and the Raiders have agreed to a three-year, $67.5 million contract. Garoppolo will be officially introduced on Friday. A press conference to do so had initially been set for Thursday but was postponed until the two sides could agree on a deal.

Garoppolo will succeed Derek Carr behind center for the Raiders. The team released Carr last month after he struggled during the 2022 campaign.
Garoppolo went 38-17 in 55 starts during his six-year tenure with the 49ers. He started 10 games last season, throwing for 2,437 yards, 16 touchdowns and four interceptions before a broken foot ended his season.
In Las Vegas, Garoppolo will reunite with Josh McDaniels. The Raiders head coach was the offensive coordinator for the New England Patriots during Garoppolo’s three seasons with the team.
McDaniels and Raiders fans will hope Garoppolo can continue his winning ways in his new uniform and lead a team that went 6-11 last season back to the playoffs.
