George Kittle enjoyed a record-breaking season in just his second year with the San Francisco 49ers, and now that accomplishment will be on display at the Pro Football Hall of Fame.
The Pro Football Hall of Fame tweeted out a photo of the jersey Kittle was wearing when he set the new NFL record for most single-season receiving yards by a tight end. This season, the tight end totaled 1,377 yards to set the new high mark.
He also hauled in 88 catches with five touchdowns on the year. Kittle’s jersey is beside Zach Ertz, who racked up more catches than any other tight end in NFL history in a single season, totaling 113 receptions.

Kittle nearly tripled his production from his rookie season with the 49ers. In 2017, he totaled 43 receptions for 515 yards and two touchdowns.
In just two short years, Kittle has become one of the top tight ends in the NFL should continue to be a huge part of San Francisco’s offense in the years to come.
