Erin Andrews showed off some Florida Gators pride on Sunday.
Atlanta Falcons rookie tight end Kyle Pitts was viewed by some as the most NFL-ready player in the 2021 draft class. Pitts was a sensational performer at Florida last season. Many thought he could step right into the Falcons offense and be a Pro Bowl performer at tight end.
Over the past two weeks, Pitts has lived up to that hype.
Last week, the rookie tight end caught nine passes for 119 yards and a touchdown. This week, Pitts grabbed seven passes for 163 yards.
The rookie tight end also made a ridiculous catch down the sideline.

Pitts, who starred collegiately at Florida, earned a one-word shoutout from fellow Gators alum Erin Andrews.
“MERCY,” the former Florida Gators dancer tweeted on Sunday afternoon.
