Jimmy Garoppolo has agreed to an endorsement deal with Jordan Brand.

Garoppolo grew up in the Chicago area.

"Since I got in the league, it was one of my dreams to be with Jordan and it came true, so I'm pretty excited about it," Garoppolo told ESPN.

Garoppolo said he and his agency began weighing various opportunities presented by Under Armour, Adidas, Nike and Nike subsidiary Jordan in the spring, just before the Niners started organized team activities.
