Pro Football Talk’s Mike Florio broke the story on a surprise addendum to Garoppolo’s contract with Las Vegas which waives the risk of additional injury and risks, up to and including “permanent disability,” and which gives the Raiders the ability to cut Garoppolo without any salary cap ramifications.
Wentz did not play well with Washington as he threw for just 1,755 yards, 11 touchdowns, and nine interceptions in eight games with the team.
The 30-year-old was once an NFL MVP candidate while playing for the Philadelphia Eagles, but an injury would turn his season and career upside down. Following his years in Philly, Wentz would play one year with the Colts and one with the Commanders.
Now, he is without a team. Wentz is conducting his own offseason workouts as he gears up for another potential season in the NFL, according to ESPN.
For Jimmy Garoppolo, he has come a long way from his days serving as a backup to Tom Brady.
In 2017, Garoppolo was traded to the San Francisco 49ers, where he was given the opportunity to be the team’s starting quarterback. He made an immediate impact, leading the 49ers to five consecutive wins to end the season. The team signed him to a five-year contract extension in 2018, indicating their confidence in his abilities.
His tenure with the team will be mostly known for the injuries that kept him off the field. He did help guide the team to the Super Bowl, but they ultimately fell short against the Kansas City Chiefs. Injuries have hampered his availability in subsequent seasons, causing him to miss significant playing time.
Last year, he had the chance to show what he had for the final time, but he got injured once again.
Now, injuries, as well as surgery, are starting off his tenure with the Raiders.
Injuries have hampered Wentz’s career as well, and he has never really overcome it. He might get a second chance this year to show what he has left in the tank.
