A new contract for the tight San Francisco 49ers George Kittle may yet be fulfilled, but it looks like the wait won’t last long.
According to the NFL Network, the 49ers and Kittle are about to finalize a deal that will make Kittle the highest-paid tight-finisher in the tournament “so far”.
A report from SI.com earlier in the day indicated that a new deal for Kittle will be announced on Friday. Kittle himself seems to have questioned that feature on his Twitter account then saying “You all believe everything you read on the internet huh.” Multiple subsequent reports say that while a deal is still underway, it looks like progress is on the way. Now it seems progress has reached the final stage of the negotiations.
Los Angeles Chargers tightly ended Hunter Henry is having the largest median salary for this position of 10.6 million dollars for this year on the franchise card. However, the four-year contract that Austin Hooper signed with the Cleveland Browns this season worth $ 42 million is the standard multi-year contract for the position.
