Looking to talk about the rest of the league (outside of the Green and Yellow)? This is your spot!
A franchise quarterback landed in the lap of the San Francisco 49ers. General manager John Lynch was not going to let him get away.
The 49ers announced that they signed Jimmy Garoppolo to a five-year contract extension. The deal is worth $137.5 million, NFL Network’s Mike Garafolo reported, per a source informed of the decision. The deal is the largest in NFL history on an average-per-year basis.
Matthew Stafford previously held the high-water mark at $27 million per year. Garoppolo’s deal will average $27.5 million. That number likely will be topped by Kirk Cousins, Aaron Rodgers and others down the line.
