49ers re-sign Garoppolo to 5-year deal

Adjust Comment Print

The San Francisco 49ers are securing him as their quarterback for the future, agreeing to a blockbuster five-year, $137.5 million extension on Thursday.

The 26-year-old Garoppolo began the 2017 season with the New England Patriots, acting as back-up behind all-time great Tom Brady.

True to his promise, Lynch and the Niners did not reveal much publicly throughout the negotiations, nor did Don Yee, Garoppolo's representative.

NFL Network first reported the terms of the contract, which is worth $27.5 million per season to top the previous record set by Detroit's Matthew Stafford last year by $500,000 per year.

Once a team has stability in the front office, at Head Coach with a system everyone believes in, and then a franchise quarterback to build around, that team is now in contention to win a championship.

In his six games for San Francisco, including one in which he did not start, Garoppolo completed 67.4 percent of his passes for 1,560 yards, seven touchdowns and five interceptions. Those two games were Garoppolo's only starts in the National Football League before joining the 49ers.

Garoppolo was traded in October by the Patriots to the San Francisco 49ers in exchange for a 2018 second-round pick.

"I like being here", Garoppolo said on January 1. The wild card at play here was that Garoppolo could have possibly been franchise tagged, but that's obviously no longer the case.

Is the deal coming soon?

That will be up to the Jets and other teams, such as the Broncos, Browns and Vikings, to decide, assuming Cousins becomes a free agent on March 14 as expected.

Garoppolo is not very active on social media but took the time to post the following photo via his official Instagram account accompanied by the word "Mood". We'll see. I think he wants to be with us and we want him there.

Brady shows no signs of slowing down, and could remain as one of the NFL's top quarterbacks for the next several seasons.

The 49ers have long-term stability at quarterback, and Garoppolo gets his guaranteed money now instead of spreading it out like Kirk Cousins and the Redskins did two years ago. So, after doing so, it is not hard to imagine him playing even better.
