The Rams and Garoppolo (suspension) agreed to a one-year contract Friday, Mike Garafolo of NFL Network reports.

Garoppolo didn't exactly uphold the three-year contract he signed with the Raiders last March, appearing in just seven games due to injury and an eventual benching for rookie QB Aidan O'Connell after Week 8. Overall, Garoppolo completed 110 of 169 passes (65.1 percent) for 1,205 yards, seven touchdowns and nine interceptions in his stint with the silver and black. The current offseason has included a two-game suspension because of a violation of the NFL's policy on performance-enhancing substances, but Garoppolo figures to serve as Matthew Stafford's backup Week 3 and beyond in the coming campaign once the former completes the ban.

Released by Raiders

RotoWire Logo Published: 2024-03-13

The Raiders have released Garoppolo.

Per Paul Gutierrez of ESPN, the same applies to slot receiver Hunter Renfrow, with the moves slated to save the Raiders more than $19 million against their salary cap. Garoppolo is thus free to sign with another team, but wherever he lands, the veteran QB will be forced to sit out the first two games of the 2024 season due to a suspension for violating the NFL's performance enhancing substances policy. With Garoppolo no longer in the mix, Aidan O'Connell and Gardner Minshew now top Las Vegas' signal caller depth chart.

Suspended for PED violation

RotoWire Logo Published: 2024-02-16

Garoppolo will be suspended for the first two games of 2024 for violating the NFL's policy on performance-enhancing substances, and the Raiders are expected to release him this offseason. Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Adam Schefter of ESPN reports that Garoppolo used a prescribed medication without having a valid Therapeutic Use Exemption from the league. He was likely headed for a release anyway, as the Raiders benched him in 2023 and can avoid paying his $11.25 million base salary for 2024 if they cut the QB before March 18. Garoppolo does have a guaranteed $11.25 million roster bonus due one day earlier, and it's possible this suspension will allow the Raiders to recoup some of that money.

Possibly one-and-done in Las Vegas

RotoWire Logo Published: 2024-01-13

Garoppolo completed 110 of 169 pass attempts for 1,205 yards and seven touchdowns to nine interceptions across seven games in his first season as a Raider. He also rushed 20 times for 39 yards and one lost fumble.

Garoppolo, who'd been demoted from the starting quarterback role by interim head coach Antonio Pierce after a dismal Week 8 performance against the Lions, made a brief appearance in the Raiders' Week 18 win over the Broncos when rookie Aidan O'Connell exited the contest for three snaps with a finger injury. Garoppolo was sacked on a third down to end his lone drive in three-and-out fashion, which symbolized his disappointing 2023 campaign. While the Raiders are slated to fill their permanent general manager and head coaching positions in 2024, Garoppolo could be on the move to another franchise for a fresh start at 32 years old.

Loses hold of starting gig

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-11-01

Garoppolo has been demoted from the starting quarterback role, with Las Vegas interim head coach Antonio Pierce announcing Wednesday that Aidan O'Connell will serve as the team's new top signal-caller beginning with Sunday's game against the Giants, Rachel Gossen of the Raiders' official site reports. "We just feel like he gives us the best chance," Pierce said of O'Connell.

After being appointed as the interim coach following the firing of Josh McDaniels earlier in the day, Pierce didn't wait long to make his first major personnel change. Pierce didn't clarify whether Garoppolo or Brian Hoyer will serve as the No. 2 quarterback Week 9, but the 3-5 Raiders appear set to give the rookie O'Connell an extended evaluation in what's shaping up to be a non-contending season. Garoppolo's move down the depth chart comes after he turned in a dismal performance in his return from a one-game absence due to a back injury in a 26-14 loss to the Lions on Monday, when he completed just 10 of 21 pass attempts for 126 yards and an interception while also taking six sacks. Despite missing two of the Raiders' eight games -- he also sat out Week 4 due to a concussion -- Garoppolo leads the NFL with nine interceptions at the halfway point of the season and has regressed mightily from an efficiency standpoint over his past three starts, completing just 62.2 percent of his passes for 6.7 yards per attempt. Garoppolo signed a three-year deal with the Raiders in the offseason that contains $33.75 million guaranteed, but Las Vegas could look to move on from him by next March, when he'll be due a $11.25 million bonus if he's still on the roster on the fifth day of the new league year, per Tom Pelissero of NFL Network.

Could be bound for bench

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-11-01

Garoppolo appears to be headed for a bench role, as the Raiders are "leaning toward" having rookie quarterback Aidan O'Connell start Sunday's game against the Giants, a source tells Vincent Bonsignore of the Las Vegas Review-Journal.

Bonsignore issued his report just over an hour after the Raiders announced the firings of head coach Josh McDaniels and general manager David Ziegler. The coaching and front-office shakeup looks as though it may extend to the personnel, as the 3-5 Raiders could be motivated to give O'Connell a longer look in the midst of a losing season, especially with Garoppolo having underwhelmed through his first six starts with Las Vegas. Despite missing games due to a concussion and back injury, Garoppolo has thrown a league-high nine interceptions on the season. He had completed 68.1 percent of his throws and averaged a respectable 7.5 yards per attempt through his first three starts, but since returning the concussion that kept him out Week 4, Garoppolo has seen his efficiency dip substantially over his subsequent three starts (62.2 percent completion rate, 6.7 YPA). Garoppolo is in the first season of a three-year, $72.75 million contract, but only $33.75 million of the deal is fully guaranteed. The Raiders can save $11 million by trading him prior to June 1 or $13 million by designating him as a post-June 1 cut.

Dreadful in return

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-10-30

Garoppolo (back) completed 10 of 21 passes for 126 yards, no touchdowns and one interception in Monday's 26-14 loss to the Lions. He added two rushing attempts for 12 yards.

Garoppolo looked rusty in his return from a one-game absence due to a back injury. He had just 31 passing yards with an interception in the first half, and things didn't get much better after halftime. Vegas' first touchdown was scored by Josh Jacobs on the ground, and the second came courtesy of the defense on a pick-six. Garoppolo's leg bent awkwardly when he took an illegal low hit in the fourth quarter, but the oft-injured quarterback managed to stay in the game, and a silver lining from this ugly performance is that Garoppolo seems to have walked away healthy. He'll look to shake off the rust at home against the Giants in Week 9.

Returns to full practice

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-10-27

Garoppolo (back) practiced fully Friday, Anthony Galaviz of The Fresno Bee reports.

After not practicing at all last week and being inactive for the Raiders' Week 7 loss to the Bears, Garoppolo returned to a limited session Thursday. A full practice Friday sets the stage for the QB to return to action Monday night against the Lions, making him a Week 8 lineup option for those in deeper formats. In the five games he's suited up for this season, Garoppolo has thrown for 1,079 yards, while recording a 7:8 TD:INT ratio in that span.

Returns to limited practice

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-10-26

Garoppolo (back) was listed as a limited practice participant Thursday, Rachel Gossen of the Raiders' official site reports.

Garoppolo didn't practice at all last week, so the QB's return to a limited session Thursday has him trending in a positive direction ahead of Monday night's game against the Lions. For his part, coach Josh McDaniels noted that the team is "hopeful" Garoppolo will be available for Week 8 action, with the signal caller now having two more opportunities to increase his practice participation before the Raiders submit their final injury report of the week Saturday.
