Report: Garoppolo and 49ers Agree to Massive Contract

by February 8, 2018 1 comment

Former New England Patriots quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo has taken his opportunity and cashed in as he and the San Francisco 49ers have agreed to a five-year contract worth $137.5 million with $74 million in guaranteed money.

NFL Network’s Mike Garafolo was one of the reporters that broke the story via Twitter.

His $27.5 million a year is the most ever given to a player in annual salary in National Football League history with the third highest amount in guaranteed money behind only  quarterbacks Matthew Stafford and Andrew Luck.

The 49ers are showing their trust in the Eastern Illinois alum and the sample size he gave them as his 1,250 passing yards are the most in a quarterback’s first four games with a team while also going undefeated with him as starter

The Patriots made a mistake and are going to have live with it as Garoppolo will be the 49er’s franchise quarterback for years to come while the team will be stuck with finding and grooming the successor to Tom Brady.
