He played college football at Eastern Illinois, where he won the Walter Payton Award as a senior and set the school records for career passing yards and passing touchdowns.
Garoppolo was selected in the second round of the 2014 NFL Draft by the New England Patriots and spent his first four seasons as Tom Brady’s backup.
Traded to the 49ers near the end of the 2017 season, Garoppolo helped revitalize a 1–10 team by winning the five remaining games of the year.
In 2019, he guided the 49ers to the best record in the National Football Conference (NFC) and an appearance in Super Bowl LIV.
Jimmy garoppolo Contract
The San Francisco 49ers and Jimmy Garoppolo saga is finally coming to an end. The quarterback and the 49ers agreed to a deal that makes him the highest-paid backup quarterback in the league.
|Contract:||1 yr(s) / $7,000,000|
|Guaranteed at Signing||$6,500,000|
|Free Agent:||2023 / UFA|
The deal is worth $6.5 million and is fully guaranteed, and he is expected to back-up second-year quarterback Trey Lance.
Garoppolo signed a five-year, $137.5 million deal in 2018 and was thought to be the team’s long-term solution at the position.
Quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo and the San Francisco 49ers put their expected farewells on hold, potentially through the completion of the upcoming season.
Instead of being traded by the 49ers as anticipated, Garoppolo agreed to a reworked contract that clears the way for him to remain with the team as the backup to new starter Trey Lance, multiple people familiar with the situation confirmed Monday.
Adam Schefter included that Garoppolo’s deal involves no-trade and no-tag clauses, which many have interpreted as the 30-year-old remaining with the 49ers for the entirety of the 2022 season before going elsewhere in 2023.
While that could be true, there very well may be a different scenario that could unfold as a result of the restructuring.
The 49ers gave Jimmy Garoppolo’s agents permission to seek a trade, sources told The Athletic on Wednesday.
The quarterback was cleared to resume practicing as he continues recovering from shoulder surgery. The organization is expected to treat him with caution throughout the summer.
Garoppolo, 30, has been with San Francisco since 2017 and has started 45 games in that span. Trade rumors have swirled around him since the 49ers drafted Trey Lance with the third pick last season.
“I expect at some time, most likely, he’ll be traded, but who knows,” coach Kyle Shanahan said in May. “That’s not a guarantee. It went on hold when it (surgery) happened. When he’s healthy we’ll see what happens.”
