Patriots officially sign Jimmy Garoppolo

The Patriots signed second-round draft pick Jimmy Garoppolo Monday to a four-year deal worth $3.3 million, with a $853,744 signing bonus.

There is a rookie pay scale in the NFL’s 2011 collective bargaining agreement, so those numbers are essentially fixed.

Top pick Dominique Easley, a defensive lineman from Florida, is the only remaining member of the Patriots’ 2014 draft class who has not come to terms with the team.

Garoppolo, a quarterback who was the 62d overall pick out of Eastern Illinois, started all 45 games he played in college, completing 62.8 percent of his passes.

In 2013, Garoppolo was named the Walter Payton Award winner as the top player in the Football Championship Subdivision.
