49er fans like me are thrilled that not only was Jimmy Garoppolo not franchised, but he got the deal he deserved. The quarterback is locked in for 5-years at $137.5 mil, making him the highest paid QB in football.
With him at quarterback, statistically their numbers skyrocketed with him under center, and the team went 5-0 to finish the season.
The 49ers and QB Jimmy Garoppolo have agreed to a five-year, $137.5 million contract, source says. The biggest deal in NFL history on a average-per-year basis.— Mike Garafolo (@MikeGarafolo) February 8, 2018
#Niners deal with Jimmy G is the RIGHT thing to do. Has superstar written all over him. Belichick knew it. Didn't want to trade him and shouldn't have. Will be worth every penny.— Mike Greenberg (@Espngreeny) February 8, 2018
