Jimmy Garoppolo hasn't even played a regular season down for the Raiders yet and he's already helping out the club in a big way. This week, it was revealed that the AFC West side was able to restructure Jimmy G's contract.

With this, the Las Vegas front office has created $17 million in cap space. This is an unreal number and one that will surely help the team out. For Garoppolo, he's ready to hit the field this weekend with his new squad and there are going to be plenty of eyes on him.

The Raiders decided to move on from Derek Carr, who is now the starting signal-caller for the New Orleans Saints. Garoppolo is ready to make some noise in the AFC West, as people are excited about what he and Davante Adams can get done.

Adams is one of the best wideouts in the game. Garoppolo could be in line for a big year, if he stays healthy that is.
