Details of Jimmy Garoppolo contract released [report]


All the details are finally rolling in. As of Thursday, we knew that Jimmy Garoppolo had signed the largest contract in NFL history, worth $137.5 million over five-years. It was also reported that $74 million of the contract will be guaranteed.

On Friday, ESPN’s Adam Schefter released the rest of the details, complete with specific breakdowns for every season through 2022. Interestingly, the 49ers have heavily front loaded the contract to take advantage of their massive amount of cap space, earmarking $42.6 million for Garoppolo in 2018, with a cap hit of $37 million, which will still leave the team approximately $76.8 million in room to sign free agents and draft picks.
