Jimmy Garoppolo Suspended for Violating NFL’s Drugs Policy

Jimmy Garoppolo Suspended for Violating NFL’s Drugs Policy

Las Vegas Raiders backup quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo has been suspended for two games for violating the performance-enhancing drugs policy of the league and the NFL Players Association. 

ESPN also reported the Raiders are expected to release Garoppolo next month before an $11.25m roster bonus kicks in.

According to reports, Garoppolo used a prescribed medication without having a valid therapeutic use exemption from the NFL. 

The Raiders signed Garoppolo last offseason to a three-year, $72.75m contract when coach Josh McDaniels and GM Dave Ziegler were in charge. 

And his play time in Las Vegas became limited after the then-interim coach. Antonio Pierce replaced him with rookie Aidan O’Connell for the rest of the season. 

Aidan O’Connell for the rest of the season. Pierce became the Raiders’ full-time coach last month. 

Garoppolo said after the season he wanted to be able to play again somewhere.

“I’m pretty open,” Garoppolo said at the time. “A lot of things are out of my control. I’ve had situations like that before, so as a player, you’ve got to roll with the punches a little bit. Whatever happens, I think it all happens for a reason. You’ve got to make the best of your situation.”

The Raiders are still looking for a quarterback, and O’Connell might be called upon. 

“There hasn’t been a lot of years I’ve been the unquestioned starter going in, so I’m used to competing,” O’Connell said on 25 January. “I had to compete to get to this spot that I’m in. I also think it would be right to have competition in this league. It’s the NFL. It’s the best of the best, so it’s my job to try to keep my job.”
