George Kittle set a new NFL record for single-season receiving yards by a tight end during a nine-reception, 149-yard game against the Los Angeles Rams on December 30, 2018. He surpassed Kansas City Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce, who minutes earlier broke New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski's record set in 2011.

Kittle is the new record holder with 1,377 receiving yard season in 2018.

One day when Kittle is done playing football, he may end up having his bust in Canton, Ohio. For now, he will have to settle for having his game-worn No. 85 away jersey and the white Nike gloves used to catch those nine passes against the Rams in the Pro Football Hall of Fame.


Kittle initially said after the record-breaking game that he would keep the jersey for himself.

"That's mine," Kittle told reporters. "That one is mine. I actually hid that so no one could take it at all. I don't want that Tom Brady thing happening where he got his jersey stolen. So, yeah, that's mine. Pretty happy about it."

According to the report from Matt Maiocco of NBC Sports Bay Area, Kittle changed his mind and was willing to give it to the Hall.
