Calif. (AP) Jimmy Garoppolo could have waited and cashed in even more than he did after other quarterbacks re-set the market.,Womens Joey Bosa Jersey,SANTA CLARA

The San Francisco 49ers could have used a franchise tag instead of making a long-term commitment to make sure Garoppolo was worth a hefty investment after only seven NFL starts.
