The All Pro tight end will continue to be a problem for the NFL and especially the NFC West as he and the 49ers have agreed to a five year $75 million contract extension, making him the highest paid player at his position in the league.
The #49ers & star TE George Kittle are in agreement on a 5-year, $75M extension, sources tell me & @MikeSilver, one that gives him more than half of it in guarantees. Language is being worked on, but numbers are there. One of their top players, this was a big-time priority— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) August 13, 2020
Kittle has become one of the best players in the NFL, and a complete player as a blocker and receiver.
Against the Arizona Cardinals in five games he has 21 catches for 281 and one touchdown.
In three season Kittle has 216 receptions and 2,945 yards and 12 touchdowns.
He is a two-time Pro Bowler and last season was an All Pro for the first time.
He now will continue to torment the Cardinals and the rest of the NFC West for another six seasons.
That's a huge extension for the 49ers.
