Quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo has reportedly signed a 5-year contract extension worth $137.5M with the San Francisco 49ers. The news was first reported by the NFL Network’s Mike Garafolo.

The 49ers acquired Garoppolo in 2017 via a made season trade with the New England Patriots, where he served as a backup to Tom Brady for over three seasons.

Garoppolo played in six games in 2017, starting five. During that span he went 5-0, passing for 1,560 yards and seven touchdowns while throwing five interceptions.

He was scheduled to become a free agent, but it was widely expected that the 49ers would sign Garoppolo long term, and they did just that, making Jimmy G their franchise guy.
