49ers’ George Kittle reveals why Tim Tebow wasn’t invited to TE camp

Over the last few years, George Kittle has become a vital member of the annual offseason Tight End University camp. It has brought many of the game’s best players at the position to workout together. However, this year’s group left a notable name off the list in Jacksonville Jaguars’ Tim Tebow.

With that in mind, Kittle didn’t waste any time in explaining why Tebow wasn’t invited.

“If I can’t invite every tight end, how do I not invite a second- or third-string guy on a team that’s been playing tight end since he was 18 years old in high school?” Kittle said via ESPN. “Nothing against Tim Tebow. I hope that he has incredible success this year, I hope he has 10 touchdowns. I hope he has a great year, but it’s hard for me to invite someone to this that just started playing the position when I can’t invite a guy that’s been playing it for eight to 10 years. That’s just hard for me.”

It’s nothing personal against Tebow, but he hasn’t proven himself as an NFL tight end. There is no certainty that he will be a productive player, let alone make the 53-man roster for the 2021 season.

In other words, Tebow has to prove on the field first that he can be a serviceable player. He will have training camp and the preseason to make his case to garner a 53-man roster spot.

Until he does that, any hope of being invited to the Tight End University camp is a pipe dream.
