Kittle is entering his sixth NFL season. He recorded 71 receptions for 910 yards and a career-high six touchdowns in 2021, bringing his career total to 335 receptions for 4,489 yards and 20 trips into the end zone over five NFL seasons.

George Kittle joined comedian Kevin Hart on his LOL Network show, Cold as Balls (h/t TheSFNiners).

San Francisco 49ers tight end George Kittle made headlines last week, telling Kevin Hart on the LOL Network show, Cold as Balls, that he would love to see the NFL add a second bye week.

One 49ers star wishes his team had taken care of Samuel earlier, avoiding the offseason drama altogether. Samuel reported to the team's mandatory minicamp earlier this month but didn't participate in the on-field work. "Hindsight is 20-20, right?" tight end George Kittle said this week on the
