Gardner Minshew, Raiders agree to 2-year, $25 million deal: Source



The Las Vegas Raiders have agreed to terms with former Indianapolis Colts quarterback Gardner Minshew on a two-year, $25 million deal with $15 million guaranteed, a league source confirmed to The Athletic on Monday.

Minshew, 27, will likely compete for the starting job in Las Vegas with second-year quarterback Aidan O’Connell and possibly a 2024 NFL Draft pick.

He filled in well for injured 2023 No. 4 pick Anthony Richardson last season with the Colts. Minshew threw for 3,305 yards with 15 touchdowns and nine interceptions as Indianapolis went 7-6 with him as the starter.

This will be the fourth stop in six seasons for the 2019 fifth-round pick. He played with the Jacksonville Jaguars for two seasons before being traded to the Philadelphia Eagles leading up to the 2021 season. After two years in Philly, Minshew landed with the Colts last offseason.

For his five seasons, he’s thrown for 9,937 yards with 59 TDs and 24 interceptions resulting in a 90.2 passer rating.
