You’re damn right Kristin Juszczyk, wife of 49ers fullback Kyle Juszczyk, is fired up over the news that her husband received a new contract this week that will pay him $27 million over five years with $10 million of that guaranteed. Kristin knows the fullback position has all but been eliminated from the NFL and that teams aren’t throwing around money to guys playing the position.
In terms of guaranteed money, Kyle, 29, is now the highest-paid NFL fullback by $5 million to second place C.J. Ham of the Vikings. It’s been one incredible run for five-time Pro Bowler Juszczyk who has now made $23 million in guaranteed money.
Add it all up, and Kristin is jacked up at how the 49ers treated her husband.
“Back like we never left!!! 🏈 🏈 So unbelievably proud of you @juicecheck44 !!!! You continue to pave the path for all future fullbacks and damnnnn you set that bar high!!!!!! Lots more sap to come but it’s time to celebrate!! I love you so much! Congratulations my love! 🍾🍾🍾,,” she wrote on Instagram.
49ers GM John Lynch is all fired up too.
I’m thirsty. Niners fans, you want some “Juice?”

While it was nice to see Dak and his girlfriend Natalie Buffett get their contract last week, it’s much better to see some of these relatively unknown guys get their due and make those huge NFL dollars. Go crazy, Kristin. You have every reason to celebrate for the next few months.
