The bond between Jimmy Garoppolo and George Kittle is one to be admired. It's also one you want to be a part of.
The 49ers quarterback and star tight end have a close friendship, one that involves trolling via Zoom backgrounds and, of course, custom shirts with pictures of the other on them.
Garoppolo wore a shirt with a picture of Kittle on it when he arrived at training camp, and the 49ers' mascot, Sourdough Sam, apparently wanted to get in on the shirt action as he sported one with a picture of Garoppolo on it Sunday.
49ers wide receiver Trent Taylor, who also is close with Garoppolo and Kittle, felt a little left out when QB1 arrived wearing a shirt with Kittle on it. Kittle, naturally, had the appropriate response to Taylor's gripe.
get better shirts then, Trent.— George Kittle (@gkittle46) August 1, 2020
Garoppolo and Kittle have become close friends during their time together in the Bay, but not good enough for Kittle to pick up Garoppolo's phone call after the tight end was named as the No. 7 player in the NFL by his peers. A missed call that Kittle rightfully was ribbed for.
With Sourdough Sam in on the fun, now we just have to wait and see what Kittle is sporting when he arrives at the 49ers' facility.
