Watch: Mic’d up George Kittle tells Kyle Shanahan, “You drafted a cheat code,” after Nick Bosa interception

Oct 31, 2019 at 7:05 AM--

George Kittle was the latest San Francisco 49ers player to be mic'd up during a game. 49ers Studios, the team's in-house production studio, released the video featuring the 26-year-old tight end during Sunday's 51-13 victory over the Carolina Panthers.

Sunday was National Tight End Day, a new holiday born at Levi's Stadium. It wasn't Kittle's doing, though. Nor was it any other tight end on the roster. It was actually quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo who coined the term last season during a Week 2 home matchup against the Detroit Lions.

In the 49ers Studios video, you can see Kittle breaking down the pre-game huddle, interacting with teammates, catching passes, and celebrating touchdowns, even though none were his own.

Kittle finished the game with six receptions for 86 yards.

"National Tight End Day. I need 14 yards," Kittle can be seen telling Garoppolo.

The quarterback asks, "Why?"

"100 (yards)," Kittle responds. "We've got to give the people what they want, Jim. They're not here to see you. They're here to see us, man."

Then there are Kittle's comments after rookie defensive end Nick Bosa's interception of Panthers quarterback Kyle Allen.

"You drafted a cheat code," Kittle tells Shanahan while walking by him on the sideline.

Kittle later adds: "Sign him to a 20-year deal now."

The 49ers made Kittle a fifth-round selection out of Iowa in 2017. He has registered 40 receptions for 462 yards with a touchdown through seven starts this season.

Joey Bosa and the Los Angeles Chargers came to terms on a five-year extension worth up to $135 million. The deal includes $102 million in guaranteed money. That's a new record for a defensive player, surpassing Myles Garrett of the Cleveland Browns. Bosa's $27 million average annual salary makes him football's highest-paid defender, according to Spotrac. Bosa is excited and grateful to have the deal done. The defender doesn't, however, expect the record amount to stand for very long. Instead, he believes it has merely helped reset the market in the right direction. Bosa even hinted that maybe the San Francisco 49ers should start saving up for a few years down the road
