Jimmy Garoppolo agrees to a three-year, $67.5M deal with the Las Vegas Raiders, according to reports from ESPN’s This Just In crew.
This move has raised questions about Aaron Rodgers’ future, particularly with the New York Jets.
However, experts suggest that Rodgers is not heading to the Raiders, and the Jets remain a strong possibility.
With the legal negotiation window now open, time is of the essence for both the Jets and Rodgers.
Meanwhile, the Raiders, who have been eyeing quarterbacks at the top of this year’s draft, may see Garoppolo as a bridge to a longer-term plan.
Garoppolo has been a successful starter over the past three years, with an impressive 8.3 yards per attempt and a 40-17 record.
If the Raiders can keep him healthy and fix their defense, they could be playoff contenders this year.
