24. JIMMY GAROPPOLO, SAN FRANCISCO 49ERS – $17.95 MILLION:
Garoppolo has the pressure firmly planted on his shoulders heading into the 2019 year. After he led an impressive late-season run in 2017, San Fran signed Garoppolo to a five-year, $137.5 million deal. The hype was on heading into last year.
But the handsome passer tore his ACL in Week 3, significantly halting his development as a starting QB in the NFL. He’ll make $17.95 million in what will almost certainly be a “prove it” year for the touted QB this fall.
