The San Francisco 49ers have agreed to a five-year, $137.5 million contract with quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo, making him the highest-paid player in NFL history, according to Mike Garafolo of NFL Network.

This past season, the New England Patriots would trade their backup to the 49ers for nearly nothing. That coin flip will occur during the NFL Scouting Combine in Indianapolis next month.

He was selected in the second-round - 62nd overall - of the 2014 NFL Draft. But Jimmy Garoppolo showed that he is the quarterback of the future.

Garoppolo has appeared in just 23 games through his four National Football League seasons, and did not get his first start until 2016 when Brady was suspended four games for Deflategate. And after a month of learning the 49ers offense, Garoppolo took over the starting job in Week 13 and proceeded to win five straight games.

Here is a look at quarterback salaries around the NFL.
