What is Jimmy Garoppolo's net worth? $138M signing with 49ers was largest in NFL history
American football's Jimmy G has made quite the name for himself as a San Fransisco 49ers quarterback. First drafted in the second round of the 2014 NFL Draft by the New England Patriots, Garoppolo was Tom Brady's backup QB in two Super Bowls. In 2017, the Patriots traded him to the 49ers, and Garoppolo made history by bagging a 7–0 win record as a starter - a feat last accomplished by Ben Roethlisberger in 2004.
Garoppolo's 2018 signing with the 49ers was the largest contract in NFL history on an annual basis at the time. Unfortunately, the same year Garoppolo's season ended prematurely due to an injury. But when Garoppolo returned in 2019, he led the 49ers to their first 8–0 start since 1990s. With several different accolades in his bag, it's no wonder that Garoppolo's net worth runs into millions.

Who is Jimmy Garoppolo?
Born in Arlington Heights, Illinois on November 2, 1991, to Denise and Tony Garoppolo Sr, Garoppolo is the third of four siblings. He was a college football star long before he became an NFL pro. As an Eastern Illinois University quarterback, Garoppolo was named to the All-Ohio Valley Conference Team in 2010, the All-OVC 2nd Team in 2012, and the All-OVC 1st team in 2013. Among his many other titles are the Ohio Valley Conference Player of the Year and the CFPA National FCS Quarterback of the Year in 2013, the same year he won the Walter Payton Man of the Year Award.
After winning and AFC Championship with the Patriots in 2014, Garoppolo was suddenly traded to the 49ers in exchange for a 2018 second-round pick. But his legacy soared as he led the 49ers to the Super Bowl LIV where they ultimately lost to the Kansas City Chiefs. Garoppolo's 2020 NFL season was however riddled with injuries, and resulted in the footballer playing only six games in total. He will kickstart this year's NFL tournament with a preseason match between the 49ers and the Chiefs scheduled to take place on Saturday, August 14, at 8:30 pm ET.
