San Francisco 49ers and QB Jimmy Garoppolo agree to restructured deal

The San Francisco 49ers and quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo have agreed to terms on a restructured one-year contract that will make him the highest-paid backup in the NFL.  Garoppolo lost his starting spot to Trey Lance earlier this offseason.

According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, Garoppolo will earn a fully guaranteed base salary of $6.5 million. Additionally, the 30-year-old Garoppolo’s new contract reportedly includes $500K in roster bonuses and playtime bonuses that could boost the overall value by an additional $9 million.

Schefter also reports that San Francisco included no-trade and no-tag clauses in the contract, allowing veteran QB time to decide his fate as a free agent next offseason.
