49ers, Garoppolo Agree To 5-Year / $137 Million Contract

Mike Garafolo on Twitter:

With the amount they have guaranteed, they are essentially telling him he has three years to prove he's worth the other $63.5 million. There are several good quarterbacks in National Football League but few great ones.

If Matthew Stafford and Derek Carr can break the bank, why not Garoppolo?

Mike Garafolo of NFL Network reports that San Francisco and quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo have agreed to a five-year, $137.5 million contract that is the biggest in NFL history in terms of average salary per year. "Hopefully, for next year, we keep this going", Garoppolo said.

After trading a second-round pick to New England for him on October 30, the 49ers gave the 26-year-old passer his first start on December 3 in his hometown of Chicago.

Schiff: House Intel 'United' That Bannon Should Answer All Their Questions
Trump's staff have tried to utilize the concept of executive privilege to withhold information from the committee. Mike Conaway, the Republican running the committee's Russian Federation probe, said in a statement .

Starting his college career, Garoppolo played for Eastern Illinois Panthers, starting in 2010. The 49ers, who had won five of their previous 34 games, went 5-0 in the month and gained at least 369 yards in five straight games for the first time since 1998.

After a Week 12 loss to the Seattle Seahawks, the 49ers' record fell to 1-10. They are the cornerstones of the Niners' quest to regain relevance, and their contracts reflect that.

That included victories over playoff teams - the Tennessee Titans and Jacksonville Jaguars - and the five victories equalled the 49ers' combined total from their previous 34 games. The first day to do that would have been February 20. And it seems Lynch used the non-exclusive franchise tag as the baseline for it. I think the franchise is in good hands with him at the helm. No team would want to trade for Cousins without him agreeing to a new contract as part of the deal.

With Garoppolo's new contract, the 49ers also avoided having to undergo a similar ordeal that the Redskins went through with Cousins.

France Hits Out at Poland's 'Ill Advised' Holocaust Law
Israel's Foreign Ministry said Tuesday that it would continue to communicate with Poland despite its reservations about the law. They say it was modelled on anti-defamation laws in many other countries, including laws criminalising Holocaust denial.

The Minnesota Vikings are in the mix for Cousins.

Garoppolo should not have been traded for just a second round pick, but I digress...
