Jimmy Garoppolo Failed His Physical

Written by Tony Ghaul

The Las Vegas gave QB Jimmy Garoppolo a three-year contract worth up to $72.8 million. The Raiders accounted for Jimmy Garoppolo’s foot injury from the 2022 NFL season when they signed the veteran quarterback this offseason.

Pro Football Talk’s Mike Florio detailed a notable aspect of the agreement.

Addendum G includes language in which Garoppolo “expressly acknowledges and waives the risk of further injury” and “expressly assumes all risks of continuing to play, despite the condition.”

Per Florio, the deal also “preserves the team’s ability to terminate the agreement with no further obligation” for any reason tied to the addendum.

Garoppolo missed the final five regular-season games and the entirety of the San Francisco 49ers’ playoff run because of a fractured left foot.
