The twenty-one year old tight-end is currently only 11 yards away from the Julio Jones record in 2001. Besides, he might soon join the Mike Dietke record as the top 1,000 yards rookie, but what is more, he will need only 128 yards to break Ditka’s TE record of 1,076 in fourteen games.
Pitts have generally faced tough opposition throughout the season, but his catching ability makes him a thriving weapon for the ATL.
Pitts’ humility about his nascent achievement – which includes making the Pro Bowl as a rookie – is matched simply by his raw ability.
Sunday can be another exceptional day for Pitts, but it won’t be easy to cope with the Buffalo Bills defense, which has allowed fifth yards to reach a narrow finish this season.
