Regardless of calls on the contrary, Jimmy Garoppolo doubtless already performed his final down with the 49ers. He is anticipated to wish a brand new residence subsequent season and Pro Football Focus believes he’ll reunite with coach Josh McDaniels in Las Vegas.
PFF notes that “Garoppolo’s 8.3 yards per try over the previous three seasons ranks second, and his 2.53-second common span to throw places him among the many quickest quarterbacks over the span.”
The web site additionally suggests Garropolo’s fast time of launch and spectacular depth on his makes an attempt ought to work effectively with the Raiders’ ability gamers, writing Garoppolo “can let the Raiders’ bevy of receiving weapons go to work in house.”
A receiving unit together with Davante Adams, Hunter Renfrow and Darren Waller compares favorably to what he is labored with in San Francisco (Deebo Samuel, Brandon Aiyuk and George Kittle).
The Raiders want a QB after they exiled nine-year starter Derek Carr forward of Week 17. On Tuesday, NFL Community’s Ian Rapoport reported Carr will visit with the Saints immediately as he begins his personal seek for a brand new group.
McDaniels and Garoppolo have a connection courting again to their time collectively in New England. McDaniels was the offensive coordinator when Garoppolo began two video games throughout Tom Brady’s four-game “Deflate-gate” suspension in 2016.
Garoppolo spent his first three-plus seasons with McDaniels as his offensive coordinator in New England earlier than being traded to the 49ers halfway via his fourth yr within the league in 2017.
One of many few knocks towards signing Garoppolo is that any group agreeing to a cope with him additionally must even have an incredible backup QB. Garoppolo has an intensive harm and it could be robust to depend on him staying wholesome for a full 17-game season.
When he’s out there, Garoppolo has at all times been a stable contributor. He has a profession completion proportion of 67.6 p.c and a file of 40-17 in 57 begins. He may not be a sustainable resolution at QB for the Raiders, however Garoppolo could possibly be Vegas’s subsequent nice residency act.
