Jimmy Garoppolo is slated to be the Week 1 starting quarterback for the San Francisco 49ers when they travel to Detroit to play the Lions.

San Francisco 49ers tight end George Kittle spoke with Cam Inman of Bay Area News Group this week.

Players may be tired of discussing Jimmy Garoppolo's job. It has been a big storyline the past two offseasons.
