Not even George Kittle can escape the Tom Brady questions.
Despite announcing his retirement, Tom Brady has been enthralled in numerous rumors as a man who will eventually return to the game, especially after the season he just had at age 44.
The San Francisco 49ers tight end, attending an NHL game in Nashville on Saturday between the Lightning and Predators, was interviewed by the NHL on TNT and asked if his Niners are getting Tom Brady.
“I think I’m off the air now,” Kittle jokingly responded, pretending to look at his watch. “Sorry, you’re breaking up. I can’t hear you. I know just about as much as all you guys.”
Last year’s No. 3 overall draft pick, Trey Lance, is widely expected to be the 49ers’ starting quarterback after the team trades away Jimmy Garoppolo.
TMZ Sports recently asked Kittle if he felt Lance was ready to be a starting NFL quarterback.
“Yeah,” Kittle responded.
