George Kittle Looking Like a Bodybuilder in Training Camp Photo
By Zach Brunner
It was a big offseason for San Francisco 49ers tight end George Kittle. His bank account grew, as he signed a contract worth $75 million over five years, making him the highest-paid tight end in NFL history.
But after seeing some recent images from the 49ers training camp, it looks like his bank account isn't the only thing that's in great shape.
The transformation of Kittle has been legendary. From a fifth-round draft pick to being the highest-paid at his position in NFL history, the tight end has come so far in four years.
Kittle has put together back-to-back 1,000-yard seasons, totaling 5 touchdowns in both years. While he is terrific in the passing game and serves as the team's top receiving option, where Kittle earns his money is his ability and willingness to block in the running game.
It's no secret that the 49ers are a run-first team. Since Kittle is such a terrific blocker, the Niners' rushing attack thrived last season and was a big part of their success. After seeing the shredded Kittle above, it's a safe assumption that he will move plenty of bodies again this season.
