“I would say the big difference is Trey’s got a little more zing on [his passes],” Kittle responded. “He definitely has a big arm. He can make throws all over the field, which is really cool to see. Jimmy can, too; they just do it differently. Trey moves around a lot better. He’s kind of a freak athlete. I’m excited to see Trey’s improvement, really.”
