This time last year, San Francisco 49ers tight end George Kittle was entering his second season in the NFL. And while he showed promise in his rookie season, grabbing 43 receptions in 2017, not many expected what Kittle was able to accomplish last year. Kittle, a fifth round pick from Iowa, doubled his rookie reception output by registering 88 receptions & five touchdowns. Those impressive numbers & league recognition was enough for Kittle to be named First Team All-Pro & play in the Pro Bowl.
The task of stopping Kittle on Sunday will be a main focus for the Buccaneers defense when the tight end & the 49ers visit Raymond James Stadium. Head Coach Bruce Arians met with the media on Wednesday & discussed Kittle's ability to run after the catch plus the need to have more than one set of eyes from the defense to stop the All-Pro tight end.
