The Niners, who were just 1-10 before Garoppolo took over at quarterback, won all five games he started as the team finished the season 6-10. Beathard fail time and time again to move the offense with any sort of momentum, Garoppolo came in and immediately changed the fortunes of the offense.
The best part of signing a contract worth $137.5 million is that you can now go swimming in your own money bin. Rodgers’s deal with the Green Bay Packers runs through the 2019 season. Russell Wilson will top it in 2020.
Listing the NFL’s highest-paid players is an inexact science.
Andrew Luck received $87 million in guaranteed money.
Even when the New England Patriots lose, Jimmy Garoppolo keeps on winning.
The team and Garoppolo’s agent, Don Yee, began discussing a long-term deal in earnest when the 2017 season ended.
If Matthew Stafford and Derek Carr can break the bank, why not Garoppolo? The deal also includes $74 million in guaranteed money, the third-highest ever, and $90 million in the first three seasons, an National Football League record. “We had a good thing going at the end of this year”.
San Francisco defensive end/linebacker is also slated to receive the same bonus after appearing in nine games with the Patriots before the Niners claimed him on waivers late in the season.
Shanahan vowed that the 49ers will “always” be aggressive in free agency, and with more than $100 million in salary cap space, they have the financial capabilities this offseason beyond making Garoppolo rich. “You know, we’ll see what happens”.
Tom Brady’s former backup (whose departure from the Patriots is at the crux of an alleged feud between coach Bill Belichick, owner Robert Kraft, and Brady) just inked a monster deal with the San Francisco 49ers. His 56.5 percent Success Rate – the percentage of plays that positively impact NEP – was also tops among this group.
That included victories over two playoff teams – the Tennessee Titans and Jacksonville Jaguars – and the five victories equaled the 49ers’ combined total from their previous 34 games.
