Jimmy Garoppolo Gets $79K Bonus For Patriots Making Super Bowl LII

Jimmy Garoppolo Gets $79K Bonus For Patriots Making Super Bowl LII

The current San Francisco quarterback and former Patriots quarterback already has earned a $79,000 bonus thanks to New England advancing past the AFC Championship Game.

Then on Sunday, as the Patriots rallied to beat the Jaguars and earn their second consecutive Super Bowl berth, they did.

Though the Patriots traded Garoppolo to the San Francisco 49ers in October, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter, Garoppolo will still earn the playoff bonuses on his contract.

It's safe to say that at least part of 49ers quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo is rooting for his former team to win it all. Schefter said a Patriots Super Bowl win gives Garoppolo another $112,000.

The former backup quarterback was traded to San Francisco in October for a second-round draft pick in the 2018 National Football League draft.

After adopting a 1-10 record, he helped the 49ers close out their season with five-straight wins.

Not too shabby for a guy who didn't take a single snap for the Patriots during the regular season.
