After an underwhelming postseason performance, plenty of San Francisco 49ers fans were questioning Jimmy Garoppolo this offseason. But don't lump George Kittle in with them.

While there were a ton of rumors connecting Tom Brady to the 49ers this offseason, Kittle reportedly never took them seriously. In fact, he even went on to say that "there's no one that I'd replace [Garoppolo] with."

This is exactly what you'd want your best player to say about his franchise quarterback. It's also yet another illustration of just how strong the chemistry on this 49ers team is.

Kittle is reportedly seeking a record-breaking contract for a tight end this offseason. He's already proven he's more than worth it on the field, but comments like these show he's more than worth it off the field as well.
