Julian Edelman felt Thursday afternoon was the perfect time to remind former teammate Jimmy Garoppolo he still owes him a few bucks.
After reports of Garoppolo’s new 5-year, $137 million contract emerged, the Patriots wide receiver tweeted at the quarterback, “yo bubs, about the 20 dollars you owe me…. I mean …. congrats jimbo slice.”

Garoppolo is now the highest paid player in the NFL on an average-per-year basis. The 26-year-old was traded from the Patriots to the 49ers in late October. He started San Francisco’s last five games of the season and went undefeated.
Former Patriots linebacker Rob Ninkovich also shared his thoughts on the contract via Twitter.
People keep asking me do I think Jimmy G got paid to much and I say HELL NO. Good call @49ers no messing around they got the guy!
