this is pretty damn funny. After Brady taking a hometown discount for so many years, Jimmy G getting paid has flipped the switch and finally made Brady butthurt. I can't blame him, but it's funny who the catalyst was. If I was the GOAT and just saw my backup with 7 starts get paid like that, I'd be annoyed too!

$74 million guaranteed is $14.8 million a year.

That is not that crazy when you can cut and run at any point. I think his contract is all marketing. He can say he is the highest paid, they can build the team around him. Consider the following cap hits in 2017:

Joe Flacco, Baltimore, $24.55 million
Carson Palmer, Arizona, $24.125 million
Kirk Cousins, Washington, $23.943 million
Matt Ryan, Atlanta, $23.75 million
Matthew Stafford, Detroit, $22 million
Aaron Rodgers, Green Bay, $20.3 million
Cam Newton, Carolina, $20.166 million
Philip Rivers, Los Angeles Chargers, $20 million
Eli Manning, N.Y. Giants, $19.7 million
Andrew Luck, Indianapolis, $19.4 million
Drew Brees, New Orleans, $19 million
Russell Wilson, Seattle, $18.8 million
Ben Roethlisberger, Pittsburgh, $18.2 million
Sam Bradford, Minnesota, $18 million
Alex Smith, Kansas City, $16.9 million
Derek Carr, Oakland, $15.7 million
Andy Dalton, Cincinnati, $15.7 million
Tom Brady, New England, $14 million
Mike Glennon, Chicago, $14 million
Jay Cutler, Miami, $10 million
Tyrod Taylor, Buffalo, $9.7 million
Jameis Winston, Tampa Bay, $6.9 million
Marcus Mariota, Tennessee, $6.6 million
Blake Bortles, Jacksonville, $6.57 million
Josh McCown, N.Y. Jets, $6.5 million
Jared Goff, L.A. Rams, $6.4 million
Carson Wentz, Philadelphia, $6 million
Brian Hoyer, San Francisco, $5.3 million
Tom Savage, Houston, $765,146
DeShone Kizer, Cleveland, $899,711
Dak Prescott, Dallas, $635,848
Trever Siemian, Denver, $628,196

They pay him $14.8 million for 2 years to try him out for sure. You pay him $14.8 for the 3rd year and if he is not working out, this would be the year you cut and run, but you’d be happy to use him as a back-up to finish the season. You are now at $44.4 million with $29.6 million to go.

Would someone trade for a back-up with $29.6 left on the contract? Probably not.

So they are risking $29.6 million. That is using $14.8, which is probably low for a starting QB. If you boost it to $20 million in the three year scenario, only $14 million is at risk in the 4th year where you would make the big move to your new franchise QB.

Doesn’t seem like that big of a risk considering the cap hits above.

I love it. Paying an unproven QB could backfire. An awful lot of money to gamble your franchises future on. I hope this does backfire and whiners are irrelevant for another 20 years.... :lol: :D

The 49ers have eleventy billion dollars in cap space...this isn’t a horrible gamble, as much as it may seem so.

I could be wrong, but I don't think Garoppolo is very good. He makes some nice throws but really fails to read coverages at times and forces it.

Yeah jeems you know as well as I do it's a process. How much money a franchise has means squat if they aren't smart with it. We'll see....

Oh I know.

In the past, paying an unproven QB has never worked, so I definitely think the odds are against them.

And Lakecrest above shows that even though the total contract is $137.5 M, it seems to be structured so they can cut him without a huge cap hit after a couple of years.
