After hauling in 210 yards in the first half of the 49ers’ 20-14 win over the Broncos on Sunday, George Kittle had himself a noteworthy new follower on Twitter: “Stone Cold” Steve Austin.

That’s quite the add for the pro bowl hopeful. One look at his Twitter account makes it abundantly apparent that Kittle is a major fan of the wrestling legend.

The Niner tight end detailed the story (and his monster game) in a Monday morning appearance with “Joe, Lo & Dibs.”

Really the only downside for George on Sunday was that he did not get Shannon Sharpe's single-game record of 214 receiving yards by a tight end after he was targeted just one (for zero catches) in the second half.
