Jimmy G got paid BIG!

Jimmy Garoppolo signed a new 5 year deal with the 49ers. Its a 5 year deal worth $137 mil which is more than Stafford signed for.

Been trying to tell half the board this for months now. If an organization likes the QB that's on the roster and he's a potential franchise QB, then that guy is getting paid

7 fuckin starts.

Wow.

They REALLY didn't want him to leave SF. I don't think he's great, either.

This is partially why I had no issue with Stafford's contract. It's going to be eclipsed in no time.

That's one issue I had - that QB's are just making too much cash. I'd be curious about Foles (edit: just saw he has a year left with Philly, 7m) and Keenum and what kind of money they might get.

Keenum, Bridgewater and Bradford are all free agents...I think they had a practice squad QB signed...that's it. Will be interesting to see how the Vikes handle this. Keenum is going to cash in I think, but will it be in Minny? Bridgewater...everything out of Minny says they like him and his recovery from the knee blowout. But he and Bradford? Big injury history. So...who do you pay?

QBs do make cash, and I hate to say it but it's the nature of the beast. If you got one you want to keep around, you got to put the proverbial ring of cash on that finger.
