SANTA CLARA, Calif. — The San Francisco 49ers’ quarterback of the present is officially their quarterback of the future.
The Niners announced Thursday they have signed Jimmy Garoppolo to a five-year contract extension through the 2022 season. Sources confirmed to ESPN the deal is for $137.5 million, including $90 million guaranteed in the first three years, making it the largest three-year total in NFL history.
The deal makes Garoppolo, 26, the league’s highest-paid player despite having just seven NFL starts to his name. The deal’s average annual value of $27.5 million per season is the largest in NFL history, $500,000 more per season than the previous high reached last year by Detroit Lions QB Matthew Stafford.
A news conference has been scheduled for Friday at Levi’s Stadium.

Garoppolo’s signing comes as no surprise, given his strong finish to the 2017 season. He took the reins from a 1-10 team and led the Niners to victories
