The San Francisco 49ers may be announcing their marquee move of the offseason on Friday. That was the report according to Sports Illustrated’s Grant Cohn, who stated a “well-placed” source within the team says that the 49ers will announce George Kittle’s new deal this Friday, which will bring the NFL’s top tight end a new deal that has been months in the making.
Per the story, Kittle is set to receive over $47 million guaranteed on a six-year deal, with a massive $25 million signing bonus to boot.
Kittle saw that report and promptly shut it down on Twitter.
“Y’all believe everything you read on the internet huh”
Kittle earned first-team All-Pro honors in 2019 after making 85 catches for 1,053 yards and five touchdowns.
49ers fans are just waiting and hoping this deal comes soon.
