The NFL is rapidly closing in on its first $30 million man, something that 49ers management and quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo assured Thursday when, reportedly, they signed the former second-round pick to the largest per-year contract (five years at $27.5 million per) in league history. That breaks down to roughly $27.5 million per year, to make Garoppolo is the highest paid player in league history. There has been talk about tagging him and trading him, but that $34.5 million deal over one year would probably be too much for another team to handle while giving up a lot of resources. It is not clear, yet, how much of Garoppolo's $74 million is fully guaranteed.

That's a hefty raise from the $820,077 base salary he played for in 2017. It doesn't say what's guaranteed, but that doesn't really matter. Garoppolo spent his first month in San Francisco as a backup, before entering late in a loss to the Seahawks and throwing a touchdown pass. It's indicative of the lack of genuine franchise QBs in the NFL. After watching Brian Hoyer and rookie C.J. So how does that impact free agent and Denver Broncos target Kirk Cousins?

In his five starts, Garoppolo, who had a base salary of $820,077 past year, completed 118 of 176 passes for 1,542 yards with six touchdowns and five interceptions. In that game, he led the 49ers down the field in the final minute to overcome a 23-22 deficit, completing three passes to get the 49ers in range for Robbie Gould to kick a game-winning field goal as time expired.

The 49rs praised the impact Garoppolo had on their team after trading for him.

The numbers speak for themselves for the 49ers' offense.

She set that example herself going back and getting her Master's degree while working full time when Brandon was in high school. It'll be mixed, right away. " More than anything, my faith has helped me get through this", Wentz said.

San Francisco is on the rise just as the Rams were previous year.

"Good for him, good for him", Smith said of Garoppolo. After all, he's only started seven games total in his career. Teams have done it before through the draft (See: the 2017 Saints). Jared Goff is already a Pro Bowler, Todd Gurley just won Offensive Player of the Year and their special teams unit is the best in football.

New England will in all likelihood will be drafting Brady's successor in this coming draft, but it only has five picks as of now (not including compensation picks).

49ers general manager John Lynch and head coach Kyle Shanahan had no true bargaining chip to use in this negotiation. Even with free agency and the draft still to come, this is the most important move of the offseason for the 49ers as they now have their franchise quarterback in place and can set about addressing other needs on the roster.
