Regardless of Patriots' Tremendous Bowl loss, Jimmy Garoppolo nonetheless cashed in

Twitter Mailbag: Should 49ers explore trade for top-flight receiver?

Jimmy Garoppolo has agreed to a five year, $137.5 million deal with the San Francisco 49ers, according to multiple reports. Raj Mathai of NBC Bay Area broke the news that the deal had been reached.

The exact details of the contract have yet to be divulged, although Garoppolo's new contract would exceed the previous record holder, Detroit Lions QB Matthew Stafford, whose current deal has an average yearly salary of $27 million. After picking up two Super Bowl rings in New England, Garoppolo became the face of one of the NFL's biggest franchises and just cashed in with a historic contract after five consecutive wins to end 2017.

Garoppolo's late-season performance stunned even the 49ers, who acquired him for a second-round pick from the Patriots on October 30.

Norway's Olympic team given 15000 eggs due to translation error
Tore Ovrebo, head of the Norwegian team, blamed a typo for the error , and said he was anxious about what would happen to all the excess eggs.

The 49ers closed out the season as one of the hottest teams in the league finishing 5-0 over the final five games.

But any team talking with Cousins is going to be in the same situation, so it seems realistic that the Garoppolo deal will be the starting point for any discussions between Cousins and his potential suitors.

Garoppolo's signing comes as no surprise given his strong finish to the 2017 season. Both coming while Tom Brady served a four-game suspension in 2016 for the infamous "DeflateGate" scandal. According to NFL.com, the QB's enormous deal will be used as leverage by other highly sought-after players like Kirk Cousins, who is likely to become a free agent soon.

Mohamed Salah vows to stay at Liverpool
I want to help the team to win trophies or be in a good position in the league, in my head I'm trying to do that. Ever since I was a kid, I had been a Liverpool fan, they were my favourite Premier League club.

Garoppolo completed 67.4 percent of his attempts (120-178) for 1,560 yards, throwing seven touchdowns to five interceptions. That deal can not become official until March 14, the first day of the new league year.

"It's a team game and everything, and I think everyone would like to say their position is as important as any other", Staley said on SiriusXM NFL radio Thursday.

The 49ers were expected to have more than $100 million in salary-cap space for 2018 and it will be interesting to see how Garoppolo's deal is structured. "That will make things a little slower for me and help me out".
