San Francisco 49ers quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo is set to make a whole lot of money over the next five years. Just four months ago, he was still a backup behind future Hall of Fame quarterback Tom Brady in New England. Now, Garoppolo is the undisputed face of one of the most iconic franchises in sports.

Garoppolo received a $7 million signing bonus as part of his new front-loaded, NFL-record $137.5 million deal. On Valentine's Day, his $28 million roster bonus, which is due on March 16, became fully guaranteed, according to Field Yates of ESPN.


Garoppolo is set to receive $42.6 million in 2018, including the $7 million signing bonus. The rest is comprised of the guaranteed roster bonus ($28 million), guaranteed base salary ($6.2 million), workout bonus ($600,000), and per-game roster bonus ($800,000).

Garoppolo will reportedly count a whopping $37 million toward this year's salary cap. Of course, the 49ers had well over $100 million in cap space in 2018, so they can easily absorb that number, remain active in free agency, and have enough to sign their draft picks.

With Garoppolo locked up and Kyle Shanahan as the 49ers' head coach, San Francisco is an attractive destination for free agents.

Back in December, former 49ers beat writer and current podcaster, Kevin Jones, shared that he received a text from a wide receiver scheduled to hit free agency. That player asked about San Francisco and praised Garoppolo.

Earlier this month, 49ers receiver Pierre Garçon took to Twitter to urge impending free agent safety Malcolm Butler to join the 49ers.

On Tuesday, former NFL receiver Andrew Hawkins said he knows free agents that are eager to join the 49ers.

"San Fran, great place to be," Hawkins said on the ESPN show "NFL Live." "Kyle Shanahan, I played for him in Cleveland. Players love him. I have fans and friends on the Falcons that miss him. And then I have guys who are free agents this year who are talking about trying to get to San Francisco."
