Jimmy Garoppolo is one of the NFL’s most notable quarterbacks. But he was also one of the most noteworthy quarterbacks without a home this offseason. The Las Vegas Raiders cut Garoppolo after he spent only one abbreviated season with the team. But on Tuesday, the 32-year-old veteran quarterback found a new home.

Garoppolo signed with the Los Angeles Rams, re-joining the NFC West in the process. The former San Francisco 49ers quarterback will likely be Matthew Stafford’s backup for one season. The Rams and Jimmy G agreed to terms on a one-year deal. The value has not been disclosed yet.

ESPN NFL insider Adam Schefter reported the news on Tuesday afternoon.

“Rams officially signed QB Jimmy Garoppolo to a 1-year deal,” Schefter posted on X, the website formerly known as Twitter.

Garoppolo has thrown for 15,494 yards in his ten-year NFL career. He’s played for the New England Patriots, the San Francisco 49ers, and most recently, the Raiders. It’s perhaps amusing that he plays for the Rams now, since they and the 49ers are longstanding NFC West rivals. They met in the NFC Championship Game in the 2021 NFL postseason, but the Rams got one over on the 49ers that day.

Now, Garoppolo will hope to get his career back on track after a disappointing 2023 season.

The NFL world had much to say about this move.
