Today is the desired day. Or, at least Raiders quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo hopes that is the day.
As Jeremy Fowler of ESPN.com pointed out, Raiders quarterback report for training camp today. The first step will be physical.
Usually, it’s routine. For Garoppolo, it’s huge.
It’s important because it failed my body in March. pushed the team to Cancellation of $11.25 million signing bonus And pay it to the basic salary, provided that in the end you will receive a financial salary. Garoppolo was forced to have surgery on a foot injury he had not previously had surgery on.
It opened the possibility that Garoppolo could eventually be released without a penny from the raiders to pay him.
And while checking the usual box, This is good Optimism is currently swirling around the situation that the same doctors who said “no” in March will now be asked to re-examine the foot and decide it’s healed enough to pay Garoppolo $22.5 million in 2023.
If he doesn’t pass the physical exam, that doesn’t mean he will be cut. The most likely outcome would be Garoppolo being placed on the Physically Unable to Perform list, with the ability to join the 90-man list whenever he passes a physical level.
The real question is whether he outgrows the physical before the rosters are reduced to 53, or whether he starts the regular season in the reserves/PUP.
That may all become irrelevant today, if the surgery and rehabilitation work – and if the team doctors who decided not to clear Garoppolo in March decide to release him now.
