At an average of $15 million per year, George Kittle now becomes the NFL’s highest-paid TE, by a long shot. Before Kittle’s deal, Hunter Henry held that title with a $10,607M deal on his franchise tag.

He’s just an absolute monster when it comes to making plays, and he terrorizes defenses on a regular basis.

Now, he’s tied to the 49ers for years to come, and he’s getting paid an absurd amount of money to do it.
You can never hate on a man for getting his cash. That’s something we’ll always love to see.
Get that money, Kittle! Get that money and ball out. That’s something I’ll always 100% support. Mad props to him.
