The People’s Tight End is staying in Santa Clara for awhile.

Today, the San Francisco 49ers and George Kittle agreed to a five-year, $75 million contract extension that makes Kittle the NFL’s highest-paid tight end ever and keeps him in Santa Clara through 2025.

According to reports, the contract comes with $40 million guaranteed, $30 million guaranteed at signing and an $18 million signing bonus.

Between his run blocking, yards after the catch and game-changing ability, Kittle is a key, if not the key, to the San Francisco offense. This is a well-deserved extension and one that should make 49ers fans everywhere rejoice and sleep easy.

One month until football.
