It’s a good day to be the 49ers QB Jimmy Garoppolo. If you’re not a total sports nut, stay with me because this is interesting.
The Patriots traded Garoppolo to the 49ers in October. Now, as you may know, the Patriots won their playoff game on Sunday against Jacksonville and now they are going to the Super Bowl. What’s really great for Jimmy Garoppolo is that even though he was traded in October and no longer plays for the Patriots, he is still getting paid on the Patriots win on Sunday, EVEN THOUGH he’s now a 49er, because of a clause in his contract with the Patriots!
Garoppolo apparently made $79,000 off of the win on Sunday. He'll make an additional $56,000 if the Patriots lose in the Super Bowl, and will receive $112,000 if the Patriots win it!
