Quarterback, Las Vegas Raiders
James Richard Garoppolo (born November 2, 1991), nicknamed “Jimmy G“, is an American football quarterback for the Las Vegas Raiders of the National Football League (NFL). He played college football at Eastern Illinois, where he set school records for career passing yards and passing touchdowns, and won the Walter Payton Award as a senior. Garoppolo was selected in the second round of the 2014 NFL Draft by the New England Patriots and spent his first four seasons as Tom Brady’s backup, being a part of two Super Bowl-winning teams during his tenure.
Traded to the San Francisco 49ers near the end of the 2017 season, Garoppolo helped revitalize the 1–10 team by winning its five remaining games that year. In 2019, he guided the 49ers to the top seed in the National Football Conference (NFC) and an appearance in Super Bowl LIV. His San Francisco tenure was also afflicted by injuries, which caused him to miss most of the 2018, 2020, and 2022 seasons. In 2023, Garoppolo signed with the Raiders after Derek Carr was released.Source
