The Jimmy Garoppolo era in Las Vegas is over, if it ever began at all. According to Adam Schefter of ESPN, the quarterback has been suspended for two games for violating the NFL policy on performance-enhancing substances. Specifically, Garoppolo is said to have taken a prescribed medication without a valid therapeutic use exemption. The NFLPA’s therapeutic use exemption primarily covers medications that are prohibited for conditions such as ADHD, male pattern baldness, and high blood pressure.

„If you have been or want to be treated by a medical professional for a condition (including, ADHD, male pattern baldness, high blood pressure, hypogonadism, or hypopituitarism) with a Prohibited Substance, you must have done so,“ reads the therapeutic use exemption guidelines. „Your physician must submit a TUE request to the Independent Administrator. If you test positive for a Prohibited Substance without a TUE, it is considered a positive test and will result in administrative discipline.“

Garoppolo will not appeal the suspension. Additionally, Schefter reported that Garoppolo is likely not to be with the Raiders in the future. According to ESPN Insider, the team is expected to release him before the fifth day of the new league year. Keeping Garoppolo beyond the fifth day of the year would earn him a bonus of $11.25 million.

The 33-year-old quarterback signed a three-year, $72.75 million contract to reunite with former New England Patriots offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach Josh McDaniels. After years of success in the Shanahan offense, Garoppolo’s performance in Las Vegas was underwhelming. He experienced declines in completion percentage, touchdown rates, success rates, and yards per attempt, as well as a new career-high interception rate. Garoppolo started six of the first eight games for the Raiders before McDaniels was fired, leading to rookie Aidan O’Connell becoming the permanent starter.

According to OverTheCap, the Raiders would incur a dead cap hit of $17 million and save $11.2 million by releasing Garoppolo within the expected timeline.
