So when Garoppolo went down Sunday in Kansas City with what is feared to be a season-ending ACL injury, Brady felt his former backup's pain. The Niners struggled with Beathard last season before the midseason addition of Garoppolo changed their fortunes. He is set to earn an average of $27.5 million per season over the contract's full five-year term, ranking fourth in National Football League history.
Garoppolo suffered the injury while trying to make a play late in the fourth quarter of Sunday's game. His loss is a crushing blow for the Niners, who just signed the 26-year-old to the richest contract in National Football League history this offseason and now must turn to backup quarterback C.J. Beathard to salvage their season. But with Garoppolo and new running back Jerick McKinnon both knocked out for the season with torn ACLs in September, those high hopes have been put on hold. He has five passing touchdowns and seven interceptions in his career.
