49ers Pro Bowl TE George Kittle is now happily married

Apr 12, 2019 at 1:07 PM--


The San Francisco 49ers Pro Bowl tight end, George Kittle, is now a married man. He posted the following wedding photos on Instagram of himself and longtime girlfriend turned fiancé turned wife, Claire Till.

"SURPRISE!" wrote Kittle. "I married my best friend. Dibs forever. I love you wifey."


What is somewhat amusing is that wide receiver and teammate Dante Pettis replied to the post with "WOAH." Either he really liked the photo, or he wasn't invited. Kittle also received congratulatory messages from several other teammates.

In September of 2018, Kittle shared the amusing story of how he used 49ers resources to propose to his then-wife-to-be.

"I'm not going to brag but I think I killed it, I'm not going to lie," Kittle said during an interview on 95.7 The Game. "I convinced my fiancé — well, girlfriend at the time — that the 49ers were doing a photo shoot for girlfriends and boyfriends, husbands and wives that they were going to put in the brochures and on the website. So I had our head photographer and two of our head video guys basically do a fake photo shoot down on the Santa Cruz beach, and so she basically had no idea.

"We were doing a whole photo shoot on the beach; cameras, we had a drone down there, lighting, everything that you possibly need. Got her a little bit distracted and then cut to the pop the question. It was pretty awesome."

It's worth noting that NFL Network analyst Cynthia Frelund actually projects 10.1 wins for the San Francisco 49ers, but I didn't need a bunch of social media posts asking what 0.1 of a win is without bothering to read this. Frelund ran her most simulations to date, a whopping 300,000 that included every regular-season game. That's a total of 81.6 million simulated games. She then took her data and vetted it with several experts to determine the projected win total for each team in 2021 based on those simulations. The San Francisco 49ers ended up with the third-most projected win average in the NFC, with only the Tampa Bay Buccaneers (12.5) and



George Kittle inspired by highlights of 49ers legend Dwight Clark, words from his son

Last week, George Kittle became the recipient of the first-ever Dwight Clark Legacy Award, an honor presented to a San Francisco 49ers player who best exemplifies the late receiver's spirit of teamwork. The award was presented to Kittle during an event at the Concord Pavilion and featured several 49ers greats. All the proceeds went to benefit the Golden Heart Fund, a charitable organization created by the team to help players transition from NFL careers to their next phases in life. Kittle had a chance to speak with Clark's family members, with Clark's 21-year-old son offering a message to San Francisco's All-Pro tight end. He said that Kittle reminded him of how his father used to play the



George Kittle, Nick Bosa 'confident' and 'excited' about 49ers outlook as season begins

After a long offseason, training camp and preseason to follow up everything that they went through in 2020, it's safe to say the San Francisco 49ers are itching to get their 2021 regular season underway this Sunday against the Detroit Lions (1 p.m. ET/10 a.m. PT). And based on what tight end George Kittle and defensive end Nick Bosa said after practice on Thursday, it sounds like the 49ers will be heading into this weekend's opener at Ford Field in Detroit with momentum at their backs after six successful weeks of preparation. Last season saw the 49ers' hopes of defending their 2019 NFC Championship go up in smoke after being decimated by a seemingly never-ending string of significant injuries. Then, to add insult to injury, the 49ers were forced to spend the



Jimmy Garoppolo, George Kittle, other 49ers players react to Jason Verrett's potentially season-ending injury

The San Francisco 49ers fear the worst but are praying for the best when it comes to starting cornerback Jason Verrett. The defender went down late during Sunday's 41-33 victory against the Detroit Lions, and head coach Kyle Shanahan confirmed after the game that the team fears he suffered a torn ACL. That would land Verrett on injured reserve for the sixth time in his eight NFL seasons. The cornerback admitted that he considered retirement after suffering a torn Achilles tendon in 2018 and was glad to get another chance with the 49ers. Now, he may be facing yet another difficult journey after staying relatively healthy last season and proving himself
