Jimmy G's reported Raiders contract sets NFL Twitter ablaze


Jimmy Garoppolo's tenure with the 49ers reportedly has ended, as ESPN's Adam Schefter reported Monday, citing a source, that the veteran quarterback is joining the Las Vegas Raiders. 

Garoppolo is set to replace Derek Carr after reportedly agreeing to a three-year, $67.5 million contract, including $34 million guaranteed, per Schefter. 

With one of the top quarterbacks in free agency off the market, there was plenty of reaction on Twitter -- with many excited to see Garoppolo in Vegas both on and off the field. 

After the emergence of Brock Purdy and the draft capital investment into Trey Lance, the writing was on the wall that San Francisco was moving on from Garoppolo. Nonetheless, the 31-year-old has landed in an ideal situation.
