That incident happened the day after he and Khloé were photographed with their daughter, True, for the first time in two months.

George Kittle is one of the NFL’s best tight ends, but from Wednesday to Friday of this week, he is hosting “Tight End University” (TE U), a three-day retreat, so his fellow NFL tight ends can hone their craft and bond with one another.

It bothers me.” The list of attendees includes Kittle, Travis Kelce, Greg Olsen, Zach Ertz, The Brown’s Austin Hooper and many more. This is Year One of what Kittle hopes will be an annual event.
