George Kittle Agrees to Record Extension

1 min read

Another day, another big contract, this time setting a record for tight ends. George Kittle will get a $75 million extension over five years. No details yet, although reports say “more than half” is guaranteed. Kittle is Rob Gronkowski’s successor as the most complete tight end in football, a YAC force as a receiver who’s also a wicked blocker. This outpaces Austin Hooper’s four-year, $52 million contract set during free agency, although Kittle couldn’t get as much as the top wide receivers, probably because San Francisco always could have just franchised him for a couple of years thanks to the fact that the franchise tag for tight ends is much lower than it is for wide receivers.
