On Sunday, the New England Patriots mounted yet another fourth-quarter comeback to crush the hopes and dreams of the Jacksonville Jaguars and any NFL fan who was dreading having to watch Tom Brady try to win another Super Bowl. This is the eighth time the team has secured a spot in the Big Game since the start of the Brady Era.
Well, it seems Brady’s former heir apparent, Jimmy Garappolo, who went undefeated in his first seven starts in San Francisco, is still reaping the benefits of the Patriots’ success.
According to Adam Schefter, Garappolo’s contract may have been transferred to another team, but he is still eligible to receive the bonuses that come with the Patriots advancing through the playoffs. As you can see, this means he’s getting paid more to do literally nothing than most people will ever make in a year.
For New England’s playoff wins and trip to Super Bowl LII, $79,000 in bonuses will be paid to 49ers’ QB Jimmy Garoppolo.
Patriots’ Super Bowl win: another $112,000
Patriots’ Super Bowl loss: another $56,000
Minimum takeaway: $135,000.
