We all know George Kittle as the San Francisco 49ers' star tight end, but senior team reporter Keiana Martin showed us a very different side of Kittle when she used a childhood photo of him as her background for a Zoom meeting.
Apparently Kittle regularly messes with his teammates by using their childhood photos as his Zoom background, but Martin got revenge for everybody with this hilarious image of little Kittle. Kittle is 6-4 and 249 pounds now, but it looks like a strong wind could have blown him over when he was a kid.
49ers fans thoroughly enjoyed seeing Kittle exposed like this. Replies compared him to MLB pitcher Tim Lincecum, who cut fast food out and went through a public weight loss journey back in 2012, and always rocked that signature flow.
Some also seemed to think the tight end hasn't changed much over the years since the photo was taken.
Fans also took the opportunity to take a dig at Kittle, who is in the final year of his rookie contract with the 49ers. He's insanely underpaid right now, but he's asking for a lucrative extension that could completely change the tight end market.
Seeing NFL players as scrawny tweens is something we can all laugh about right now, and now we want to see the ones that Kittle has been using to roast his teammates. The 49ers are the reigning NFC champions, so it would be hilarious to see them taken down a couple of pegs.
