That included victories over playoff teams - the Tennessee Titans and Jacksonville Jaguars - and the five victories equalled the 49ers' combined total from their previous 34 games.
It's official! Jimmy Garoppolo and the San Francisco 49ers have agreed to a record-breaking five-year, $137.5 million contract. Garoppolo, the former heir apparent to Tom Brady, will now be the highest-paid signal caller on an average annual basis in National Football League history.
Maine's Flu Season is Bad and Peaking Right Now
Given not everyone gets tested for flu, such measures typically are used as a gauge of how much flu is out there. One out of 14 doctors visits, a patient is complaining of flu symptoms, the highest amount in nearly a decade.
The deal is said to come with $74 million guaranteed, according to Matt Maiocco of NBC Sports Bay Area.
The one possible mitigating factor is that there is no word yet on how much of that money is guaranteed. After being traded, he found himself the highest-paid player in the NFL.
As it now stands, the 49ers don't have a second round pick or a fourth round pick, but they do have three picks within the top 75.
Black Lives Matter leader fatally shot in New Orleans
Weaver says she'll be passing the money raised on to Kimberli Duncan, Muhiyidin's sister. "He took it on as a personal battle". The report says a bloody trail leading to d'Baha circled two blocks, and a bloody bicycle lay across the street.
Garoppolo was already expected to be well-paid after reaching the end of his rookie contract, but few expected the 49ers to make him the highest-paid player in the league. Garoppolo completed 70 per cent of his passes and led the team on a last-minute drive that ended with a game-winning field goal. He threw six touchdowns and five interceptions in those five games. Garoppolo had only 1:07 left to work with - plenty of time to make a first impression. Pairing him with a young, innovative head coach in Kyle Shanahan gives the 49ers a power couple that is coming along at the right time, with the Seattle Seahawks re-tooling and the Arizona Cardinals hitting the reset button.
"I like being here", Garoppolo said on January 1. Didn't they learn anything from when they overpaid the last guy they thought was the quarterback of the future?
But Garoppolo likely won't be the highest paid quarterback for long. But defenses didn't really have much tape of him to watch before the five games he played in. He is considered the top quarterback available this offseason.
