Niners tight end George Kittle put pen to paper on a 5 year, $75 million contract on Thursday. The deal sees Kittle earn around $15 million per year and suit up as a Niner for the foreseeable future. Shortly thereafter, Kittle's peer, adversary and rival - Travis Kelce - followed suit and signed a 4-year $57.25 million contract with the Kansas City Chiefs.
What did the Niners’ obliteration of Aaron Rodgers’ Packers tell us?
After the events of Week Nine in the NFL, there remains only one undefeated team. The 8-0 San Francisco 49ers. Coming into the season, many predicted the Niners to be a frisky, wildcard type team despite the disappointing 4-12 2018 season.
The one word that comes to mind when describing the 49ers last year is ‘unlucky’. Jimmy Garoppolo’s innocuous injury, accomplished attempting to rush for an additional yard, ended his season and consequently the 49ers hopes.
The best wide receiver in football, who turns 31 this July, is due to hit the market and, as you can imagine, there will be numerous suitors.
Kittle, Manning and a miracle in Miami.
