Trent Taylor campaigns for 49ers to pay George Kittle

#PayGeorgeKittle

The hashtag has taken on a life of its own on social media. San Francisco 49ers fans want to see their favorite team finally lock up popular All-Pro tight end George Kittle to a long-term contract.

Agreeing on an extension remains a priority to the 49ers, even as the team shifts its focus toward training camp. Although, recent reports state that the two sides aren't "particularly close" on finalizing anything.

Kittle reported to the 49ers' Santa Clara facility on Tuesday, though, for his first of two COVID-19 tests. The second will occur today. Should both come back negative, he will be allowed into the building as early as this weekend.

"George is such a great fit for what we do," general manager John Lynch said this week. "He's a tremendous player. I'm sitting here looking at the vision statement for what we want in a player, and George checks every box. He's tremendous. He's what we want to be. I think it would be silly not to figure that out, so we're going to do our best to do just that."

Lynch opted not to put a timetable on when a deal might get done.

It isn't just Lynch and fans who want to see Kittle get his new deal, which will likely make him the highest-paid tight end in football. His teammate, wide receiver Trent Taylor, recently campaigned for San Francisco to hurry up and get it done. He tweeted out the following after Kittle's placement within the NFL Top 100 Players of 2020 was revealed.


What might the 49ers front office think about one of their players calling them out? Taylor urges any concerned fans to relax.

There is a lot of uncertainty in the NFL's future. I'm not just talking about training camp or the upcoming season. Yes, the preseason games have been eliminated. No, we don't know if the season will be played in its entirety. Although, the league is, perhaps dangerously, pushing forward to play amidst a pandemic. There is a lot of uncertainty in the years ahead, too. No one knows how an unprecedented season like this one will impact the league financially. Will there be the money for teams to retain their most-talented players? What happens if he salary cap drops significantly? There are so many questions and far fewer answers. These uncertainties are part of the reasons why San Francisco 49ers tight end George Kittle doesn't have a contract
