Garoppolo has reportedly agreed to a five-year deal worth $137.5 million.

That contract means that Garoppolo, who has made just seven career starts in the NFL and thrown just 12 career touchdown passes, the league's highest-paid player. Stafford's deal pushed the bar higher from Carr's five-year, US$125 million pact with the Oakland Raiders.

The San Francisco 49ers have locked down their projected franchise quarterback.

The Patriots called Lynch on October 30 and offered him a trade: Garoppolo for the 49ers' second-round pick in 2018.

During this stretch of games, Garoppolo looked extremely competent under center as the vocal leader of the offense, elevating his teammates play to another level.

Garoppolo left the New England Patriots in November 2017 when he was traded for the 49ers' 2018 second-round draft pick.

The mega-deal comes after Garoppolo assumed the starting job on a 1-10 team and began a December to remember.

So where does Cousins land and how much does he get paid?

In five starts for San Francisco, Garoppolo took the 49ers on a five-game winning streak to end the season on a high note, becoming one of the hottest football teams in the league.

Upon his arrival in San Francisco, Garoppolo made an immediate on the struggling team that had just one win before he arrived. Flacco earned a contract thanks to a historic playoff run and potential - Much like Garoppolo is getting now, albeit without the historic playoff run and Super Bowl MVP.

Garoppolo's immediate success also sent a panic through 49ers fans because he was scheduled to become an unrestricted free agent on March 14. I think the franchise is in good hands with him at the helm. The first day to do that would have been February 20. But he seems likely to work out a deal to remain in New Orleans, and it is not clear whether he will be seeking at this point in his career to set new salary records.

It has been rumored that the Green Bay Packers have wanted to put quarterback Aaron Rodgers back atop the pay scale.
