The first wave of free agency is officially in the books.
Over the last seven days, more than 150 players found a new home in the NFL, and PFF provided live analysis on every major transaction, giving out grades from both a team fit/need and value standpoint.
Here are the five moves that earned a “C-” (or worse) value grade, starting with the Las Vegas Raiders‘ decision to sign quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo to a three-year, $67.5 million contract.
JIMMY GAROPPOLO TO SIGN WITH THE LAS VEGAS RAIDERS
2022 PFF Grade: 71.4 (22nd/39 QB) 2022 PFF WAR: 1.07 (26th QB)
- Fit/need grade: A
- Value grade: D
- Contract: Three years, $67.5 million, $34 million guaranteed
- PFF projected contract: One year, $15 million, $12 million guaranteed
Garoppolo has missed varying amounts of time during his six seasons with the 49ers, and he has missed significant amounts in four of those seasons.
You won’t get a better version of Garoppolo than the one Kyle Shanahan was able to conjure, and the Raiders are guaranteeing more money than Geno Smith received from the Seattle Seahawks.
