Just imagine:Raheem Morris: We all know what Kyle Pitts could be, if we get him going…

Falcons tight end Kyle Pitts, drafted fourth overall in the 2021 NFL draft, hasn’t fully met the high expectations, but coach Raheem Morris remains confident in his potential. Morris emphasized the coaching staff’s role in unlocking Pitts’ capabilities, expressing optimism about maximizing Pitts’ talent for the benefit of the team.

The Falcons have backed up those words with the action of picking up Pitts’ fifth-year option, guaranteeing him a $10.9 million base salary in 2025. A team doesn’t do that with a player it doesn’t expect to contribute.

He’s very excited about being healthy, and so are we,” Morris said. “Getting a healthy Kyle Pitts gives you a really dynamic player that we believe in a lot. Hence, the picking up of his option [and] letting him be apart of our immediate and hopefully our long-term future.”


In terms of pure athletic talent, Pitts has traits that few tight ends in NFL history can match. It’s the job of Morris and his staff to get Pitts to produce in line with his talent.
