NFL Network’s Mike Silver said the San Francisco 49ers and George Kittle at the close are not close to a deal at the moment:
Kittle’s silver advice that wants to be paid for as a wide receiver and not as a record hard ending.
Is Kittle’s camp doing everything he can to increase its value by declaring to unsubscribe? I don’t think he’ll get there. Kittle is one of the best players in the game and wants to be paid as such. August 7 is an important date because players must decide by then whether they want to choose to play in the 2020 season. If Kittle decides to opt out, he will earn $ 150,000, but he would have to pay for it next season. Anyone who knows Kittle would say it’s a long shot. Silver said he was confident the deal would be completed.
Allegedly, both sides have been moving in the wrong direction for several days, and it was only a matter of time before the national media seized it. I’m not sure how much stock I’ve put into this information, but I asked earlier in the week if there were any updates on Kittle, and his deal seems to be “disrespectful” all of a sudden. Kittle wants to go to a training camp, but it’s not really a practice. Again, this was not cross-checked, but the information is consistent with what Silver says above. I understand that the negotiations are smooth, but everything was fine and dandy a week ago, and now the two sides are very far apart? What has changed?
Kittle’s peers believe he is the seventh best player in all football. You won’t have many arguments from anyone that Kittle is not an excellent player. He wants to pay as one. Why not? On August 12, the team will start “training”. The seventh and 12 August are therefore the days to be observed in relation to the contract with Kittle. I hope it doesn’t bleed into the season. The last thing San Francisco needs is to hang over his head as the team tries to win the Super Bowl.
