No, this is not a joke. The San Francisco 49ers and Jimmy Garoppolo have agreed to a 5 year deal worth $137.5 million.
The deal also includes up to $90 million in guarantees over the first three years of the deal. It makes the 26 year old quarterback the highest paid player in the NFL
At the end of the season 49ers GM John Lynch promised the fans they would sign Garoppolo to a long term deal.
“You have our assurances, and the fans do, that we’d like nothing more than to make him a Niner for a long, long time.”
Just an insane deal for a guy who has started only seven games in four seasons. As expected, Garoppolo took to Instagram to celebrate his massive deal.
