Jimmy G. Gets Paid; Niners QB Jimmy Garoppolo Cashes in With 5-Year Deal, $137.5 Million

The 49ers saw enough of Jimmy Garoppolo near the end of the season to realize he’s the guy for the future of the QB position for the Niners, and paid him well on Thursday, agreeing to a five-year contract with the quarterback worth $137.5 million.

The deal is the largest in NFL history on an average-per-year basis.

San Francisco acquired Garoppolo in October from the New England Patriots for a 2018 second-round pick. The quarterback was in the final year of his rookie deal. The new contract helps the Niners avoid using the franchise tag on Garoppolo.
