Rams agree to terms on one-year contract with quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo

Jimmy Garoppolo stay in the west.

The Rams have agreed to terms on a one-year contract with the quarterback, NFL Network insider Mike Garafolo and NFL Network's Peter Schrager reported Friday, according to sources.

Garoppolo spent 2023 trying to prove his worth as a starter during a disastrous 2023 season with the Raiders.

After signing a big three-year deal to reunite with his former offensive coordinator from his time with the Patriots, head coach Josh McDaniels, Garoppolo lasted just eight weeks as Las Vegas' starter.

He missed two of those games due to injury and had a .500 average in his six starts while throwing for 1,205 passing yards, seven touchdowns, nine interceptions and a passer rating of 77.7 .

McDaniel was licensed on Halloween night, also marking the end of Jimmy G's starting role, when interim head coach Antonio Pierce tabbed beginner Aidan O'Connell as the new QB1.

He received a two-game suspension for violating the NFL's policy on performance-enhancing substances in February, and he was released Wednesday at the start of the new championship year.

His next move takes him back to the NFC West, where he has already spent six years with the 49ers and experienced the highest heights of his career thus far, leading San Francisco to a berth in Super Bowl LIV and earning recognition as a quarterback who wins over the top. everything else.

However, the Niners ended up spoiling him, too.

He will now join one of their biggest rivals, as reinforcement Matthew Stafford after serving his suspension to start the season.

The Rams have placed an increased emphasis on experienced backups in recent years, given Stafford's injury issues. They employed Carson Wentz in 2023 and helped Mayfield Baker cite one instance in 2022 that led to his career resurgence with the Buccaneers last season.

Garoppolo certainly fits that bill entering the second decade of his NFL career. In his previous 10 seasons, he totaled 15,494 yards, 94 TDs and 51 INTs with a 43-20 record as a starter.

Los Angeles hopes to avoid it, but if pushed into action, Garoppolo's goal along with the increase in his win total will spark a comeback like Mayfield.
