Las Vegas Raiders signing QB Jimmy Garoppolo to three-year, $72.75 million contract

The Las Vegas Raiders are signing quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo for three years.

NFL Network insiders Ian Rapoport, Mike Garofolo and Tom Pellicero reported a $72.75 million contract on Monday.

Rapaport reported that the contract includes $34 million guaranteed.

The deal reunites Garoppolo with Raiders head coach Josh McDaniels.

McDaniels coached Jimmy Gee as the offensive coordinator in New England from 2014 to 2017, the beginning of the quarterback's NFL career.

The Patriots won two Super Bowls during Garoppolo's tenure as Tom Brady's backup.

The deal gives the Raiders hope that it can bring a championship to Las Vegas.

Garoppolo has completed 67.6 percent of his passes so far for 14,289 yards, 87 TDs and 42 interceptions.
