The 49ers' most famous bromance continues.
You might remember George Kittle wore a shirt featuring a topless Jimmy Garoppolo to the tight end's NFC Championship Game press conference after the 49ers clobbered the Green Bay Packers at Levi's Stadium. Garoppolo decided to get his own shirt made and wore it as he arrived for 49ers training camp on Saturday.

"No. 7 in the NFL Top 100, No. 1 in your heart baby, George Kittle," Garoppolo quipped to the camera as he walked into the 49ers' team facility.

Kittle noticed and sent virtual love to his quarterback.
49ers wide receiver Trent Taylor, who is close with Kittle, was a little jealous of the bromance sent this tweet, which garnered a response from the 49ers tight end.
get better shirts then, Trent.— George Kittle (@gkittle46) August 1, 2020
Kittle and Garoppolo have become close friends during their two seasons together in San Francisco. They've taken in some professional wrestling together at Chase Center, thrown playful barbs at each other in the media about their communication skills and Kittle even utilized photos of Garoppolo as his Zoom background during the 49ers' offseason program.
On the field, Kittle is Garoppolo's No. 1 option and arguably his best blocker in the run game. Kittle and his representatives are in contract extension negotiations with the 49ers, and hopefully for all parties involved the tight end will have a new deal sooner rather than later.
Don't be surprised if Kittle's arrival outfit has some kind of connection to his favorite QB.
