Garoppolo signed with the Raiders in March. The Eastern Illinois product signed a three-year contract with Las Vegas.
Prior to signing with the Raiders, Garoppolo had played for the 49ers for the past six seasons.
After a standout career at Eastern Illinois, the New England Patriots selected Garoppolo with the No. 62 overall pick during the second round of the 2014 NFL Draft. The quarterback backed up Tom Brady for three seasons and helped the Patriots win a pair of Super Bowl titles.
Following the 2016 season, New England traded Garoppolo to San Francisco.
Last season, Garoppolo threw for 2,437 yards, 16 touchdowns, and four interceptions with a 67.2 percent completion rate before suffering a season-ending injury in December 2022.
In his NFL career, the Raiders quarterback has thrown for 14,289 yards, 87 touchdowns, and 42 interceptions with a completion rate of 67.6 percent.
