A rookie contract was signed by the tight end Kyle Pitts who was drafted with the highest overall pick in the history of the NFL Draft.
The Atlanta Falcons and No. 4 overall pick Kyle Pitts have reached an agreement on a four-year contract, as confirmed by Scott Bair of the team’s official website.
The agreement includes a fifth-year team option, which is standard for first-round contracts in general.
According to a report by Mike Garafolo of NFL Network, Pitts will receive $32.9 million completely guaranteed over the course of four years, in addition to little north of $21 million in signing bonus.
During his two years at Florida, Pitts amassed 1,419 receiving yards and 17 touchdowns on 97 receptions, making him a prolific ball catcher.
The 22-year-old tight end, who stands 6-foot-6 and weighs 245 pounds, possesses the proper size, speed, and athleticism to dominate as a modern tight end.
Pitts has impressive skills for a rookie, including great hands, route running, and the ability to defeat linebackers and defensive backs.
Following the trade of Julio Jones, it is anticipated that the highly regarded Pitts, who many experts viewed as the greatest non-quarterback prospect in the 2021 draft, will step in and instantly play a key part in Arthur Smith’s offense alongside Calvin Ridley and Russell Gage.
The extra duties that rookie tight ends face in the NFL frequently make the adjustment from college to the pros difficult for them. However, the Falcons are sure that Pitts will be able to make the shift and have an influence on the offense from the very beginning.
