San Francisco 49ers sign George Kittle to contract extension

NFL: NFC Championship-Green Bay Packers at San Francisco 49ers Kyle Terada-USA TODAY Sports

The San Francisco 49ers have made George Kittle a problem in the NFL.

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.

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.
