SANTA CLARA Trent Taylor Jersey White , Calif. (AP) — Jimmy Garoppolo could have waited and cashed in even more than he did after other quarterbacks re-set the market.The San Francisco 49ers could have used a franchise tag instead of making a long-term commitment to make sure Garoppolo was worth a hefty investment after only seven NFL starts.But both sides wanted this resolved quickly, and did so with a contract that will pay Garoppolo a record $27.5 million per season over the next five years.“This is where I want to be, honestly,” Garoppolo said at a news conference Friday. “I wanted to get this deal done as fast as possible. It will only help our team going forward going into free agency. … I wanted to be here. I was excited to be here. I’m happy we got it done as fast as we did.”Garoppolo’s $137.5 million contract has the richest annual value in NFL history, topping the deal Detroit’s Matthew Stafford signed last year by $500,000 a season.The deal includes nearly $49 million that is full guaranteed, more than $74 million guaranteed for injury and more than $86 million that will be paid out over the first three seasons.The franchise tag could have been a safer option for both sides, leading to more money for Garoppolo if he kept playing at the high level he showed this past season and more protection for the 49ers if he didn’t reach that level.But neither side was eager to go that direction.“We became convinced we had that as an option, but we didn’t want to use it,” general manager John Lynch said. “We wanted to make Jimmy a 49er for a long, long time. Do you have to have some faith for that? Absolutely. But he earned that faith we had for him. I know it wasn’t a super long time but we felt we had a really good grasp on the talent and that was only confirmed when he got here.”San Francisco acquired Garoppolo from New England before the trade deadline for a 2018 second-round pick. As soon as he took the field a few weeks later, he immediately turned around a franchise that started the year with a 1-10 record.Garoppolo took over as starter and led San Francisco to five straight wins to end the season. He completed 67.4 percent of his passes this season, averaging 8.8 yards per attempt with seven TDs, five interceptions and a 96.2 rating.Among quarterbacks with at least 100 attempts last season, Garoppolo ranked first in yards per attempt, fourth in completion percentage. His 308.4 yards passing per game in his five starts also would have led the league had he played a full season.Now he will have a full offseason to completely learn coach Kyle Shanahan’s offense, which could lead to even more production.“Now the rush isn’t quite the same,” Shanahan said. “He can start from the beginning and start from the first page and not the 50th page. He can get a better foundation. When you have a better foundation of where you’re coming from and learning, it gives you a chance to play at a higher level.”Garoppolo has won all seven starts in his career, including two in New England to start the 2016 season when Brady was suspended for his role in “Deflategate.” Only four other quarterbacks since the 1970 merger won their first seven starts http://www.49erslockerroom.com/authentic-dante-pettis-jersey , with Ben Roethlisberger the most recent to do it with 15 wins in a row in the regular season for Pittsburgh in 2004-05. Garoppolo’s 2,038 yards passing in his first seven starts are the fourth most among all quarterbacks since 1970.The deal still leaves the 49er with more than $60 million in salary cap room, according to executive vice president Paraag Marathe, with several more holes to fill. The most glaring needs are upgrading the skill position players and interior of the offensive line, and finding a big-time pass rusher and cornerbacks to help the defense.Lynch said he plans to be “aggressively prudent” with that money but believes this deal will help sell the organization to potential free agents, including some who played for San Francisco this past year.“One of the reasons for the urgency, if there was some for us, was heading into free agency this is a big deal,” Lynch said. “It’s 75 degrees and sunny outside. We have this guy. Who wouldn’t want to be here? We want to become a destination where everyone wants to be.” We’re a bit late since it’s Thursday and not Monday, but we haven’t talked aboutDan Kadar of SB Nation — @MockingTheDraft on Twitter and always a good follow — and his mock draft of this week. This week Kadar has trades, which we’ll get to, but for your first two picks we have.......well something consistent. He has the Arizona Cardinals taking Nick Bosa and the San Francisco 49ers taking Josh Allen. This is a scenario we’re all familiar with. Here’s what Kadar has to say about the Cardinals taking Bosa: The pick makes sense. While I’ve argued that Bosa isn’t near a fit for a 3-4 as say, Quinnen Williams, he’s just that dynamic of a player. Here’s what Kadar had to say about Allen to the 49ers: There’s not much to say about Allen that hasn’t been said about him going at this spot. I’ve seen a few comments that appear disappointed the 49ers get Allen. Remember, this isn’t going from a first round pick to a fifth rounder. Josh Allen is a special player in his own right. What’s interesting is this mock draft has trades, and at No. 3, our trade has the Jacksonville Jaguars giving up pick Nos. 7 and 38 and a 2020 second-round pick to the New York Jets for the No. 3 pick. They select Ohio State quarterback Dwayne Haskins. So why bring up the trade? Because a lot of the 49ers getting Bosa could hedge on the Cardinals trading that pick away and that’s a rather steep climb. Teams don’t need to go overboard and clinch the No. 1 when they can do it at No. 3. And once again, I’ll close by saying this all changes with the NFL Combine. If Haskins or Kyler Murray go lights out, there might be a trade to No. 1.
