Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Thursday, February 08, 2018

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 agreed to terms on a five-year contract with Jimmy Garoppolo 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. Garoppolo seems pretty happy about the development.
