It is always fun to listen in on NFL players when they are mic’d up and this past weekend, it was former Iowa Hawkeyes, now San Francisco 49ers tight end George Kittle.

Kittle seemed to be having a lot of fun on the field joking with the Chiefs’ defensive players and joking on the sideline.

Kittle is one of the most likable and popular players in the NFL and it shows on and off the field. When the season started, Kittle was sidelined with an injury but returned to the 49ers lineup amassing 280 yards and 1 touchdown so far.

Kittle has become an integral part of this 49ers offense since being drafted out of Iowa in 2017. He is a 3-time All-Pro and is considered one of the best tight ends in the NFL today.

But besides his play, his personality and fun character make you see why so many of his teammates enjoy playing with him over the years.
