George Kittle continues relentless offseason training ahead of 49ers’ Legendary Revenge Tour

May 24, 2020 at 11:43 AM--

San Francisco 49ers tight end George Kittle is about as good as anyone can be at his position. That doesn't mean he is complacent with his development. After suffering the biggest defeat of his young career, the All-Pro isn't slowing down. In fact, he looks to be ramping things up as he and his teammates prepare for their Legendary Revenge Tour in 2020.

@OurSF49ers posted a video by Jeremy Holt of AthElite Performance that shows Kittle continuing his "relentless offseason training" and seemingly developing his footwork.

Kittle remains in Nashville and has even put together an elaborate home gym set up in his garage. He ordered all the equipment shortly before much of the nation went on lockdown. It has become the envy of his teammates.

"Oh, it's got the most character to it," Kittle said. "I got the nice rubber floors. We keep it clean. We treat like it's our real gym. It's fun, too. Our whole family gets to use it. We had to put everything together. And mine's 100% used for a gym—other people (such as his teammates) have other things in [their home gyms]."

Holt, in April, posted the following video of Kittle working out. Although, it is unknown exactly when the video took place, given limitations that were in place due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Kittle is coming off back-to-back seasons of 85-or-more receptions for over 1,000 yards and Pro Bowl selections. He was also named a first-team All-Pro following the 2019 season.

Kittle's 1,377 receiving yards in 2018 set a new NFL record for the most by a tight end in a single season.

H/t to Dalton Johnson of NBC Sports Bay Area for the find.

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

By Levin T. Black
Jun 27, 2020

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

George Kittle's market value could have been set by Arik Armstead, says 49ers insider

The San Francisco 49ers and George Kittle, or his representation, at least, are having a difficult time agreeing on the tight end's value. The team would like to lock up the versatile All-Pro to a long-term deal, but it's that versatility that has complicated things. Kittle is the 49ers' most valuable receiver. He is also one of the team's best blockers. To just look at the tight end market would be an injustice. He is so much more. Kittle's agent, Jack Bechta, has described his client as a "unicorn." "He's just one of a kind," Matt Maiocco of NBC Sports Bay Area told Will Brinson on CBS Sports' Pick Six NFL Podcast. "And the thinking is that even though

49ers' Jimmy Garoppolo, Mike McGlinchey, George Kittle explain why a Super Bowl hangover is 'not a possibility'

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
