49ers tight end George Kittle tweeted “sup” to disgruntled Steelers receiver Antonio Brown on New Year’s day. He was asked about the tweet by Jim Rome, who wanted to know if that was an attempt to recruit Brown.
According to Kittle, it was simply a dare by his quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo. The two 49ers players must have been overjoyed by AB’s response.
Kittle then had to remind Rome that he wasn’t Jimmy G, after Rome dared Kittle to give him $10k.

The Jimmy G to AB connection would be amazing, but there’s zero chance that happens next season.
Brown will stay in Pittsburgh.
