49ers’ George Kittle calls Jimmy Garoppolo the ‘worst texter of all time’

Jan 27, 2020 at 8:50 PM--

San Francisco 49ers tight end George Kittle thinks very highly of his quarterback, Jimmy Garoppolo. After all, the signal-caller helped him earn his second consecutive 1,000-plus-yard season, a first-team All-Pro nod, and, most importantly, a trip to Miami for Super Bowl LIV.

Kittle will go on and on about Garoppolo's good looks too, if you give him the opportunity. There is one area where the tight end can't praise his quarterback.

Garoppolo, apparently, is a horrible texter.

"He is the worst texter of all time," Kittle told a reporters during Super Bowl LIV Opening Night at Marlins Park in Miami when asked to identify one of Garoppolo's flaws. "I'm telling you, he leaves me unread all the time. I'll be, 'Hey Jimmy, I've got a question. Maybe on this play, should I run my route like this?' No response. 'Jimmy, want to go to a movie?' No response.

"And then the next day he's like, 'Yeah, I got your text. I just didn't respond.' Thanks Jim. That's awesome. So yeah, he's a bad texter. Bad communication."

Nobody's perfect, I guess.

Several San Francisco 49ers players took part in this week's State of the Franchise event. One of the topics of conversation surrounded the possibility of a Super Bowl hangover. As tough as it is for a Super Bowl champion to claw its way back to the mountaintop, it is even tougher for the runner-up. All too often, that second-place team will regress the next season, but 49ers players don't see that happening with this squad. Why is that? What makes this 49ers team so different from past Super Bowl runner-ups? What makes its players think that they can get back and win it all, this time? "I think it's the guys in our building and the leadership that we have," responded offensive tackle Mike McGlinchey during the conversation with Keiana Martin and Greg Papa. "It's

49ers Have All the Leverage and Should Just Say No to Paying George Kittle What He Wants

By Levin T. Black

The San Francisco 49ers and star tight end George Kittle are currently working on a contract extension. The two sides have been for awhile. No one outside of the franchise knows how close the two sides are. What is known is the type of money Kittle is seeking. Kittle wants to be paid like a top offensive tackle or wide receiver. His agent went public with this info nearly a month ago. Since then there has been silence from both sides. They could be far apart. Heck, they could have already agreed considering the team managed to keep DeForest Buckner's permission to seek a trade and head coach Kyle Shanahan's extension secrets for MONTHS. It wouldn't be surprising if they aren't close however. This is because the 49ers hold every ounce of leverage in this situation
