Raiders sign Gardner Minshew to 2-year deal

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports that the Las Vegas Raiders are signing free agent quarterback Gardner Minshew to a two-year contract.

What It Means:

Minshew's new deal is reportedly worth up to $25 million and includes $15 million in guarantees, setting him up to become the team's potential starter for the 2024 NFL season. The Raiders could still add competition for Minshew and Aidan O'Connell in the NFL Draft (or via trade), but for now it looks like Minshew will start the season off for Vegas.

Minshew has made 37 career starts between the Colts, the Eagles, and the Jaguars, which made him one of the more experienced journeyman available in this year's free agent class. He should be a perfect bridge quarterback as the franchise recovers from the back-to-back Jon Gruden and Josh McDaniels misfires.
