How much money does Jimmy G. earn?
As a quarterback for the San Francisco 49ers, Jimmy Garoppolo is one of the top performers and also a top earner in his team. With a $ 135.5 million 5-year contract, he’s one of the highest-paid NFL players ever. For the current season, the quarterback earns a salary of $ 24.98 million. Of course, taxes have to be paid from all that money and an excessive lifestyle is just one of them. Jimmy Garoppolo has an estimated net worth of around 60 million euros. Well-paid advertising deals significantly improve his income.
Jimmy G. played for EIU (Eastern Illinois University) during his college years (2010-2013) and even broke the school record for most complete passes. In his senior year he even received the coveted “Walter Payton Award“Which is why he had a good chance of getting a professional contract in the 2014 NFL Draft.
New England Patriots
The New England Patriots took Jimmy G. in the second round of the 2014 NFL Draft as the 62nd overall pick and he was awarded a 4-year rookie contract: Signature Bonus $ 853,744 and a salary of $ 420,000 as backup quarterback for superstar Tom Brady for the 2014 season.
In his rookie season he was only on the field 6 times, but was still able to win with the Patriots as part of the team Super Bowl XLIX to win. Jimmy Garoppolo should have a lot of patience as a Brady backup, because his missions were only safe when Brady was injured or suspended. In the second season of 2015, he was only on the field 5 times. Due to a 4-game suspension from Brady at the beginning of the 2016 season, Jimmy G. was in the starting line-up of the Patriots, but injured himself in the second game and therefore had to pause again. At the end of the season he still won the Super Bowl LIeven though he was the only Patriot not to snap a single snap.
Even before the 2017 season, there was speculation about a change of Garoppolo, as the other NFL teams tore him due to the strong performance. However, a change was initially rejected by coach Bill Belichick.
It should take until October 31, 2017, before the Patriots let Jimmy G. move to the San Francisco 49ers, where he had to integrate into the new team during the current season. After the brief 2017 season, the 9ers offered a historic $ 137.5 million contract for 5 years. Of this, 90 million US dollars alone are guaranteed in the first 3 years. Up until then, it was the biggest contract in NFL history.
The first season with the new mega-contract was plagued by bad luck with injuries, because in the third game of the season against the Chiefs, Jimmy Garoppolo sustained an injury in his left knee and that meant the early end of the season and a regular season record from only 4-12.
The 2019 season was supposed to be the big “Jimmy G. Show” because he won the NFC Championship with the 49ers. He sensationally led his team into the SuperBowl 54, where it came to the big showdown against the Kansas City Chiefs (led by QB Patrick Mahomes). Unfortunately, they lost the big game and the 9ers have to hope for the big title again in the coming seasons.
