Is Jimmy Garoppolo worth $137.5 million?

The San Francisco 49ers made Jimmy Garoppolo their man, giving the starting quarterback a fat five-year, $137.5 million contract with $74 million in guaranteed money. Garoppolo established himself as a worthy talent with his 5-0 record as a starter and 67 percent completion percentage. Still, he only played six games for the team and giving him that much money guaranteed was a little overboard. What do you think? 🏈

People knew that Jimmy Garoppolo was a stud when he stepped in for Tom Brady and was successful. He rewarded the San Francisco 49ers for acquiring him. He led the team to a 5-0 record with him as a starter, showing poise and accuracy from the pocket that hasn't been seen since Alex Smith left the team. Garoppolo is a superstar waiting to explode, and the 49ers made a great investment.

Apparently, six games are all it takes to make a first-year starter the highest paid quarterback in the NFL. Garoppolo was able to lead the team to five wins as a starter, but he still showed some kinks in his game, throwing for seven touchdowns with five interceptions. He is no question a good quarterback, but he was definitely not worth mortgaging the franchise, especially with such a small sample size. This is a huge risk for the team.
