Atlanta Falcons: Kyle Pitts is the future face of the NFL
The Atlanta Falcons have a player who is on the path to becoming the face of the league, or at least, the face of the league that is not a quarterback.
Certainly, when fans think about the NFL, they immediately think of guys like Tom Brady, Aaron Rodgers, Patrick Mahomes, and Josh Allen among others, but when you think past the quarterback position, fans think about Aaron Donald, Tyreek Hill, and others, but Kyle Pitts will soon be among those who are considered to be the face of the NFL.
The Atlanta Falcons tight end will become one of the most popular players
The Falcons’ most popular player over the past decade-plus was certainly Julio Jones. When you would think about the Falcons, you would think about Julio Jones, but Kyle Pitts is soon going to be even bigger than Julio was.
Kyle Pitts went into his rookie season at the age of 20, he turned 21 in the middle of the season—October 6th to be exact.
He was among the youngest players in the NFL and still will be going into his second season in the NFL, yet, despite his young age, he was able to put up a 1,000-yard season, and he had the second-most receiving yards by a rookie tight end in NFL history. The only player ahead of him? The great Mike Ditka.
Kyle Pitts is just getting started and he could easily become the undisputed best tight end in the league and possibly the best receiving threat that the NFL has to offer.
Having his size, speed, hands, and route-running ability means the sky is the limit. Again, he dominated NFL competition at the age of 20, it is simply hard to comprehend.
They even mentioned during the last Pro Bowl how he was the first player born in the 2000s to make the Pro Bowl. He will be getting a second contract, which will likely break records, at an age where some players are just coming into the league.
So, while guys like Travis Kelce, George Kittle, Tyreek Hill, and Justin Jefferson are some of the players that fans think about first when it comes to the NFL, Kyle Pitts will take the crown from them in the coming years. Simply put, Kyle Pitts will be one of the faces of the NFL in no time.
