George Kittle throws support behind Jimmy G. amid Tom Brady rumors
There are rumors swirling that the San Francisco 49ers are intrigued by the possibility of luring Tom Brady to the Bay Area, but George Kittle appears to have just thrown his support behind Jimmy Garoppolo.
The superstar 49ers tight end took to Instagram Wednesday to share of photo of himself and Garoppolo celebrating a touchdown.
Kittle enjoyed a standout season in 2019 with Garoppolo under center with 85 receptions for 1,053 yards and five touchdowns in an All-Pro campaign, so it wouldn’t be surprising if he preferred to maintain the status quo at quarterback.
Still, the rumors that the 49ers could make a move on Brady have been gaining steam of late, with a report this week suggesting the conversation concerning the Bay Area native potentially playing for the favorite team of his childhood is “real” on both sides.
There is no disputing that Garoppolo did not put forth his best performance in a loss to the Kansas City Chiefs in Super Bowl LIV. Despite a disappointing end to such a magical season, it certainly appears that Kittle appears inclined to continue to roll with Jimmy G. … even with the possibility, however slim, of getting the opportunity to catch passes from the GOAT.
