A franchise quarterback landed in the lap of the 49 ers. Jimmy Garoppolo was announced to sign a five-year contract extension. The deal is worth $137.5 million. The deal is the largest in NFL history on an average-per-year. Garoppolo will earn $61.2 million over the first two seasons. The contract also includes a no-trade clause that activates at the start of the fourth year of the contract (2021).
The 49 eres went 5-0 in Garoppolo’s starts, the longest active regular-season winning streak in the NFL. The former second-round pick has never lost an NFL start. So we eill expect that he have a great performance and the 49 ers come back in a really competitive division, with the renewed LA Rams, and Seattle Seahawks. The task will not be easy for Jimmy G.
