That total is second only to Andrew Luck’s $140 million contract with the Colts, according to Pro-Football-Reference.com. But Garoppolo’s per-year average is reportedly the largest in NFL history, according to NFL.com.

Brady’s old backup hasn’t lost an NFL start and, in fact, went 5-0 with the 49ers after he was traded to the flagging west coast team this season.
