Kittle posted an edited picture of himself donning a Jacksonville Jaguars jersey and made it seem he had been traded. He didn’t fool too many people. Kittle loves playing for the Niners, and San Francisco is going to keep him around as long as it can.

George Kittle had another hilarious tweet in response to Lynch. Take a look below.

Don’t worry, Niners fans. George Kittle isn’t leaving the Bay Area anytime soon. Kittle is a foundational piece of the San Francisco offense, and has a chance to put up his best numbers yet in 2021.
The 49ers are loaded at the skill positions. Brandon Aiyuk and Deebo Samuel are rising stars within the NFL. As long as both stay healthy, that should allow Kittle more one-on-one opportunities.
The real question for San Francisco is at quarterback. The 49ers will draft a quarterback with the No. 3 overall pick, but that doesn’t mean the rookie will earn the starting gig. By all accounts, Kyle Shanahan still wants to stick with Jimmy Garoppolo. We’ll see.
No matter the quarterback that starts for the Niners this upcoming season, he’ll be surrounded by a solid supporting cast, Kittle included.
