As he prepares to lead his 49ers into battle against the Rams on Sunday, we take a look at just who is Jimmy Garoppolo and how much he's worth. Literally.

49ers on Garoppolo: “We have a starting quarterback as a backup”

The veteran QB has seen quite a bit in his career, from being back up to Tom Brady to his pending date with the Rams, in the NFC Championship game this Sunday. Here we take a look at just what all that success has meant financially as we examine where he's come from and where he stands today.

Who is Jimmy Garoppolo?

Born in a suburb of Chicago, Illinois by the name of Arlington Heights in 1991, Garoppolo was actually on the path to becoming a professional baseball player. Though he did in fact play football in high school, it was baseball that had his focus initially as began to prove himself as an able pitcher. As it turns out, his arm proved just as skilled when he picked up a football and after a successful season for his high school, he attracted the attention of several colleges. In the end Eastern Illinois University is where he decided to ply his trade.

Though relatively small compared with other colleges, Garoppolo blossomed into a very good quarterback. Winning several awards, the young 'Jimmy G' would go on to actually break the school's record for career pass completions. A feat made all the more remarkable when we consider that the previous record holder, was none other than former Dallas Cowboys star Tony Romo. From there it was onto the NFL Draft of 2014 in which he was not highly rated, finally being drafted to the New England Patriots as the 62nd pick. At the time head coach Bill Belichick was searching for a strong back up to star QB Tom Brady as well as a potential replacement for the future. Garoppolo would feature in six games in that first season - coming on when the Patriots were enjoying sizeable leads. Interestingly he actually linked with Rob Gronkowski for a touchdown on his very first drive. His rookie season would eventually see him win his first ring as they Patriots defeated the Seattle Seahawks in the Super Bowl.

While his time with the Patriots was not exemplary he did get limited opportunities, most notably during the Deflategate scandal which implicated Tom Brady. Once the dust settled, however, Brady returned and that was more or less that, where his career with the Patriots was concerned. In the end he was traded to the San Francisco 49ers during the 2017 season and became there starting quarterback, which he still is today. As Garoppolo prepares to play in the 2022 NFC Championship game, it could be said that things have come full circle for the play maker. Can he take the 49ers all the way to a Super Bowl victory? Also what will happen to him even if he does, with trade rumors flying around? Whatever the case, we'll get a good look at Jimmy G this Sunday.

What is Jimmy Garoppolo's net worth?

Where his off field success is concerned one could say that the quarterback has done quite well for himself. As of 2022 Jimmy Garoppolo's net worth stands at $27 million according to various news outlets as well as Celebrity Net Worth. While the majority of that figure comes from his sizeable contract with the 49ers - Garoppolo signed a five-year extension with the 49ers in February 2019 worth a reported $137.5 million - he also has varying endorsement deals with a number of brands. Nike, Michael Jordan's brand, Bose, New Era and Men's Wearhouse are just a few of the brands that are known to have agreements with the quarterback. Garoppolo has also previously been seen modelling Levi's Jeans which would suggest the he also has a deal in place with the clothing brand. Regardless of the numbers, one can surely imagine that come Sunday Jimmy G's focus will only be on defeating the Los Angeles Rams.
