George Kittle apparently has a haunted house, it scares Sam Darnold

If George Kittle ever invites you over to spend the night, just don't stay in the pool house. Sam Darnold found that out the hard way.

49ers tight end George Kittle is already a unique personality, so it's only fitting he happens to own a haunted house.

Quarterback Sam Darnold didn't have a place to stay when he joined the San Francisco 49ers as a free agent earlier this offseason.

Being the nice guy that he is, tight end George Kittle offered Darnold a place to stay until the former Carolina Panthers signal-caller could get settled on his own. Granted, Kittle didn't have a spot in his Bay Area house, per se.

But there was room in the pool house.

Darnold happily obliged, but it turns out he probably wasn't staying in there all by himself. There was someone (or something) in there with him.

Sam Darnold reveals that George Kittle has a haunted pool house

Darnold earned a reputation back in 2019 for saying "I'm seeing ghosts" during a game against the New England Patriots in which he did not perform well.

We can hope that Kittle wasn't poking fun at Darnold by somehow spookifying his pool house.

However, Darnold revealed to the Pardon My Take Podcast (h/t 49ers Webzone) that there appeared to be something ghost-like at Kittle's residence.

"There was something going on," Darnold explained. "That's not why I moved out. I moved out because I had already spent a week there, but that didn't help."

OK, not too convincing enough. It's normal to hear strange noises when living in a place for the first time. Until you're used to them, they're scary.

But whatever "it" was, spooked Darnold a bit more than should be expected.

Check out what he said next:

"I woke up, and you know how sometimes you have a dream, and then you wake up, and you feel like you can't move for like, maybe four or five seconds, whatever it is? And I felt that, and I woke up. It was like 3 a.m. Went to go take a pee and came back, fell right asleep.

And then that next night, the night after that, the same thing happened, and I had to keep focusing on this thing in the corner. There was something else in the room. ... It was very creepy, and I had never dealt with anything like that before. And I know a couple of people who have had situations where there have been, whether it was an old Civil War place where now there's a hotel or a dorm, and people have certain experiences with that, but it was just super, super weird.

And it just felt like when I woke up, there was something, like, holding on to me. And then that next night, I felt that something was in the room with me. And it was the freakiest thing. I'm getting chills talking about it right now. But that's never happened to me before."

Perhaps Kittle will ultimately reveal some elaborate prank he pulled on the quarterback. Or, as should surprise no one, maybe Kittle purchased the home with the full knowledge that something weird and paranormal lived out in the pool house.

Darnold found out the hard way.

So, as a piece of advice (both from Darnold and Niner Noise), don't go accepting invitations from Kittle to stay in his pool house.
