Garoppolo 49ers connect completing long-term record deal

Garoppolo, who got his first start on December 3 against the Bears, set a franchise record for passing yards in his first five starts with the team (1,542), doing so despite having minimal time to absorb Kyle Shanahan's offense. In three seasons before 2017, he played 17 games for New England, starting twice.

"More." Aaron Rodgers during his contract negotiations, probably. The 26-year old Garoppolo threw for seven touchdowns, five interceptions, and 1,560 yards at a 67.4% completion rate, which would have ranked fourth in the National Football League over the course of the 2017 season.

He was selected in the second-round - 62nd overall - of the 2014 NFL Draft.

Garoppolo is 7-0 in his career as a starter, which makes him one of seven QBs to win his first seven career starts since 1970. After watching Brian Hoyer and rookie C.J. Beathard kept the reins for two more weeks and went 1-1 before Garoppolo took over in Week 13.

The Raiders quarterback certainly didn't seem deserving of his deal in 2017, but 2018 gives him a chance at redemption under Jon Gruden.

Garoppolo's immediate success also sent a panic through 49ers fans because he was scheduled to become an unrestricted free agent on March 14.

To be fair, they were extraordinarily good games for Garoppolo.

Before his acquisition and eventual insertion into the lineup, the 49ers were 1-10, and the offense had looked pretty stagnant.

Because Garoppolo spent the first half of the season with the Patriots and then landed with the 49ers and the NFC in the trade, he met both criteria to earn the bonuses.

Meaning the rivalry between Los Angeles and San Francisco could be one of the best for a few years to come.
