Legendary 49er QB Steve Young has offered his blessing on Jimmy Garoppolo’s reported mega contract.

“It’s a deal that had to get done,” Young told The Mercury News while playing the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am on Thursday. “And he’s been trained well and he knows what you have to do to be great and so I don’t think we’re going to see any big drop in what you saw this year, which is tremendously good news.

Garoppolo reportedly landed a five-year, $137.5 million deal.
