Jimmy Garoppolo shows up to 49ers training camp wearing a George Kittle shirt

Aug 1, 2020 at 11:37 AM--

You might remember tight end George Kittle wearing a T-shirt featuring a shirtless Jimmy Garoppolo following the San Francisco 49ers' win over the Green Bay Packers in the NFC Championship Game. It was even signed by his quarterback.

Of course, that came after Garoppolo received this in the mail and showed it off to reporters.

Garoppolo finally responded by reporting to training camp on Saturday wearing a T-shirt featuring his All-Pro tight end. His version, however, has a photo of Kittle donning the Garoppolo shirt he wore in January.

That's just clever.

"Oh hey there. No. 7 in the Top 100. No. 1 in your heart, baby. George Kittle," said Garoppolo.

The bromance between the 49ers quarterback and his favorite on-field target continues, and the real winners are the fans.

Veteran players were allowed into the facility on Saturday after undergoing two rounds of COVID-19 tests. Garoppolo and his fellow quarterbacks, however, were among the group of players who were allowed to report earlier along with the team's rookies and rehabbing players.

Update: Kittle responded to the shirt.

Someone might be a little jealous, though.

Jimmy Garoppolo figures to be the starting quarterback when the San Francisco 49ers take the field against the Detroit Lions in Week 1. At some point, though, whether it be this year or in the more distant future, Trey Lance will take the reins. After all, the Niners traded up to the No. 3 overall pick in this year's draft to acquire the former North Dakota State star quarterback. The 49ers are holding a three-day rookie minicamp this weekend. Lance is the only quarterback participating. Garoppolo will enter the mix on May 24, when the team begins organized team activities. While Kyle Shanahan acknowledges it would be a tall order for Lance to beat out Garoppolo for the starting job, the 49ers head coach welcomes competition at all positions. "[I]f

Jimmy Garoppolo spoke publicly for the first time since the San Francisco 49ers traded up to draft his eventual replacement, Trey Lance. In fact, it was the first time he's spoken publicly since January. The quarterback appeared on ESPN Radio's Keyshawn, JWill & Zubin show, sharing that he will do what is expected of him, mentoring his new teammate. Garoppolo also knows that he needs to be ready to compete, though, noting this situation's similarities to that of the one he went through in New England with Tom Brady.
