49ers Blitz: George Kittleā€™s contract, Jadeveon Clowney rumor, social distancing workouts

Jul 31, 2020 at 6:30 PM--


Here are some of the top San Francisco 49ers storylines that made their way around social media on Friday, July 31, 2020.

Show Kittle the Money?


Mike Silver went on the NFL Network today and reported that George Kittle and the 49ers front office are at a "significant disconnect" in regards to contract negotiations and even suggests that the superstar tight end could consider opting out of the 2020 season.

There have been plenty of rumors of disconnect between Kittle's camp and the front office for some time now. So much so that a social media movement surrounding Kittle's contract negotiations has been circulating for nearly a month in the form of the hashtag #PayGeorgeKittle. With the official start of training camp nearing, the next couple days could prove to be very interesting.


#ClowneyToSF


A rumor that the 49ers reached out to Jadeveon Clowney surfaced this morning, as reported by @thepick6com on twitter.


Workout Distancing


49ers assistant coach Katie Sowers posted a photo to her Instagram showing how the team plans to keep a safe distance during its workout sessions as training camp inches closer.


Taylor Wants Kittle Paid


There are plenty of friends and family members of Kittle who have supported the #PayGeorgeKittle movement on social media but arguably the most impactful representative from Kittle's camp has been 49ers wide receiver Trent Taylor.

Taylor has been using the #PayGeorgeKittle hashtag for some time now but took the movement to new heights by retweeting a 49ers post about Kittle and adding "Front office hiding from the facts."

San Francisco 49ers tight end George Kittle headed into the locker room a little earlier than his teammates after suffering what looked to be a knee or leg injury. He was, however, able to return to the game in the second half, but was largely ineffective in the team's 24-20 defeat against the Arizona Cardinals at Levi's Stadium on Sunday. The tight end was held without a catch after the injury. "George, he's a warrior," quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo said. "He fights through a lot, a lot of injuries, a lot of little nicks and bumps.
