Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Just signed to a 6 year/$94.8 million deal. That's $15.8 million per season. $47.4 million guaranteed (50 percent), with a $25 million signing bonus.

According to Sleeper.

Not so fast, says Kittle

George Kittle seemingly shoots down Sports Illustrated report that a contract extension is imminent

https://www.49erswebzone.com/articles/138581-george-kittle-seemingly-shoots-illustrated-contract-extension-imminent/

That was short-lived. Grant Cohn of Sports Illustrated — not too long ago today — reported that the San Francisco 49ers were on the cusp of a six-year, $94.8 million contract extension for All-Pro tight end George Kittle.

Don't celebrate just yet

Kittle himself replied via Twitter, asking, "Y'all believe everything you read on the internet, huh?"

There you go.

Cohn's report stated that the 49ers would announce the new deal on Friday. It sounds like this is news to Kittle. or it could be that the details simply have not been finalized. We'll find out in the coming days.

Meanwhile, Matt Maiocco of NBC Sports Bay Area reports that his sources indicate that there is "healthier progress" toward a new deal between the two sides, but that nothing has been agreed to yet.

"The sides have not reached any agreement, league sources indicated Wednesday to NBC Sports Bay Area," wrote Maiocco, "but they appear to be making 'healthier progress' toward a deal that is expected to make Kittle the highest-paid tight end in the NFL by a wide margin."

In Cohn's defense, he did begin his report with "Take this for what it's worth," before offering up significant contract details.

NBC Sports' Matt Maoicco reports the 49ers and George Kittle are making progress on a contract extension.

The two sides took a negotiations break in the summer months, but those talks have picked up this week. Both parties likely want to reach an agreement before the season kicks off, and it could happen at any second. When it's announced, Kittle will likely have the most lucrative tight end contract in the league's history. Kittle's earned every penny with elite pass-catching ability, blocking-ability, and leadership. He's the total package and one of the most valuable non-quarterback's in the entire league. Kittle should be drafted in the second round of fantasy drafts, especially with potentially Deebo Samuel facing a multi-week absence to start the year.

Just heard some cool insight on the radio on how the terms of Kittle’s contract changed.

basically he told the Niners he didn’t care about the vanity of it. What he wanted was to know he could go out there every Sunday and play “like a raging bull” and be protected so if he got hurt he wouldn’t be screwed by it.

niners agreed that’s how they want him to play & they reworked the deal.

ya gotta love this guy.

George Kittle (hamstring) returned to practice on Wednesday.

The San Jose Mercury's Cam Inman notes that Kittle "looked sharp with his burst and cuts" during his first practice since dealing with "hamstring soreness" last week. The 49ers wisely limited his reps to preserve him for what should be a monster 2020 season. With Deebo Samuel (foot) and Brandon Aiyuk (hamstring) questionable for Week 1, Kittle is locked into top-two fantasy rankings against the TE-vulnerable Arizona Cardinals. Kittle is a rock-solid second-round pick for those drafting in September.

I just worry about the health of the offense overall. Kittle was basically going to be option 1A anyway so as an owner I want as big of an offensive pie as possible.

Good to see Kittle back in the 2nd half, but the fact that he wasn’t targeted at all is a bit concerning that there may be more to this injury than what has been communicated.

Agreed. Injury only happened because his QB threw a terrible pass and left him hanging out to dry.  Ugh.

49ers coach Kyle Shanahan said TE George Kittle suffered a knee sprain in Week 1 against the Cardinals.

He sustained it while leaping for a ball Jimmy Garoppolo sailed over his head in the first half. It's only Monday, but it sounds as if Kittle is shaping up to be a question mark ahead of Week 2. His availability in practice will be worth monitoring throughout the week.

Jimmy G is probably feeling worse than Kittle today, or at least should be.

George Kittle (knee) did not practice Wednesday.

Coach Kyle Shanahan actually said Kittle will not practice all week but could still play Week 2 against the Jets, though the Niners don't need him in order to beat that dumpster fire. Still, it would be tough for fantasy players to miss out on Kittle against the cake-walk Jets. Even if he does suit up, Kittle won't play his normal snap share and would be at less than 100 percent. Kittle sprained in his knee in the opener.

Hard to think Kyle Shanahan will run Kittle out there again if the 49ers get a big lead. He's going to be hard to start for me.

George Kittle at 60% for 1/2 of football > most any TE off the waiver wire

This guy seems like the toughest mofo in football. Sometimes I do wish he'd just sit out a game or two like everyone else though.

No doubt. Insane that he was back in the game on Sunday after the injury. When I saw it I thought there was a chance his season was over. He’s awesome.

49ers TE George Kittle (knee) did not practice Thursday. 

As expected. Head coach Kyle Shanahan said Kittle wouldn't practice all week after suffering a scary knee injury against Arizona. If Kittle is a go with week against the Jets, he probably won't see his normal usage. Jordan Reed should be picked up in deeper tight end premium formats.

They don't need him to beat the Jets. He probably could go but this is better for his longterm outlook this season. With this crap start to the season though he likely won't finish in the top 5 TE. Could see him missing week 3 too. 

 

He's hurt because I own him. Sorry guys. Lol

Please draft early and post the results so we know who to avoid.  Hopefully this is just precautionary. Rolling with Jonnu this week.

Sorry brother. I feel bad for that one. I'm shocked they went into the offseason wanting to figure out how they could take Singletary off the field.

Last year I picked Barkley 1.01.  
 

this year I traded for MT and Kittle two weeks ago.

It does but last year I limped in to the playoffs as the 8 seed at 5-8 and won the Super Bowl and points title with no Godwin or cook week 16.   So you never know.  It’s a marathon.

5-8 teams winning it all is exactly why no one should be playing in 8-team playoff leagues.

There's no way around it, guy right before me in the 3rd took Kelce, I blurted out Kittles name quickly, just seemed the right time. 

Golladay went right after Kittles in my league, Lev Bell a couple more, then Evans(MissedWk 1), Godwin(will Miss Week 2), this was a real sketchy area of the draft it seems. 

Now Kittles OUT in Week 2, double whammy plus you are typically a little weaker at other spots when you go TE in 2nd/3rd

I guess.  I was the total points leader.  Five of my losses were as the 2nd or 3rd highest points losing to 1st or 2nd.   So it seemed right.

I've seen plenty of 5-8 teams with better all-play records that 1/2 the playoff donkeys.

Then play Victory points or something or based on total points.  If you're going to make head to head record the main and only way of rewarding teams to make playoffs, then a 5-8 team shouldn't make it.  8 teams makes reg season pointless, playoffs are mostly luck.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports the 49ers believe TE George Kittle (knee) will return in Week 3 against the Giants.

Kittle has already been ruled out of Week 2 due to the MCL sprain he suffered in his opener versus the Cardinals. San Francisco is getting a bit of help this week with Mohamed Sanu on the roster and Brandon Aiyuk expected to play. Those two alone don't fill the void left behind by Kittle. He's one of the few tight ends who can stay on the field every snap because he excels as a blocker and receiver. He posted 53 total yards in the first half of Week 1 before the knee injury effectively ended his day.

He may be out only one week, but as tough as he is, has to be a bit concerning that his numbers may suffer a bit this year if he’s not 100% for some time.
