Jimmy Garoppolo Signs With 49ers, Becomes Highest Paid Player In NFL

New England Patriots quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo

The San Francisco 49ers and quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo have agreed to a massive five-year, $137.5 million contract, the biggest deal in the NFL history on an average-per-year basis, NFL Network's Mike Garafolo reports.

The contract makes Garoppolo the highest-paid player in National Football League history in terms of average salary, at $27.5 million annually.

Garoppolo's late-season performance stunned even the 49ers, who acquired him for a second-round pick from the Patriots on October 30.

Jimmy Garoppolo #10 of the San Francisco 49ers looks on after a game against the Chicago Bears at Soldier Field on December 3, 2017 in Chicago, Illinois.

Cousins and Garoppolo don't really compare to one another.

Although the deal isn't official yet, per Adam Schefter of ESPN, inking Garoppolo to a long-term deal, the 49ers will finally regain stability under center, something the team hasn't had since 2014.

Two children die from the flu in Wichita
The schools have asked parents to keep sick children out of school until they are fever-free for 24 hours. Even more, more than 7% of all the recently hospitalized patients in NY were related to the flu influenza.

Garoppolo's deal includes $74 million in total guarantees, including injury.

In 23 games with seven starts between the 49ers and Patriots, Garoppolo has completed 67.3 percent of his passes for 2,250 yards, with 12 touchdowns and five interceptions, for a passer rating of 99.7 and a 77.7 QBR. That run came after the 49ers started the season a dismal 1-10.

He also won his two games he started for the Patriots in 2016, when Tom Brady was serving his four-game suspension for his part in Deflategate.

Make no mistake, Garoppolo still has plenty to prove before he can safely be tossed in the upper echelon of the NFL's top quarterbacks, even though he's now being paid like one. That deal can not become official until March 14, the first day of the new league year.

This Garoppolo deal impacts John Elway and the Broncos but I don't think it changes much in terms of what we already knew. Considering the 49ers have more than $110 million in projected cap space this offseason, it wouldn't have hamstrung any of his other plans in free agency. "... He did a hell of a job starting way behind in the small time he played, and I expect him to keep getting better".
