With plenty of star quarterbacks likely switching teams this offseason, Jimmy Garoppolo's future with the San Francisco 49ers looks more uncertain than ever. Names like Matthew Stafford, Kirk Cousins and Deshaun Watson have all been mentioned as potential upgrades over the 49ers' incumbent QB.

But don't count superstar George Kittle among those who want to see San Francisco make a move at QB. Check out this powerful quote he gave about Jimmy G's future in San Francisco.

To be fair, it's not like Kittle is going to come out and bash Jimmy G. He did lead this team to the Super Bowl in 2019, after all. But we've seen players go out and recruit quarterbacks when a big name has hit the market in the past, as Von Miller did with the Denver Broncos when Kirk Cousins was looking for a new team.

The fact that Kittle isn't openly recruiting someone like Deshaun Watson speaks volumes about his belief in Garoppolo, as do his comments on the situation.
