The annual tight-end summit, deemed Tight End University (TEU), reconvened this week for the third consecutive year. The event was founded by Greg Olsen, Travis Kelce, and George Kittle to celebrate, train, and collaborate with tight ends from all over the league.
Here are some of the highlights from the three-day event, including an appearance from Trey Lance.

Over 70 players (current and former) are attending. All together to chill, train, practice, and pick each other's brains.

Trey Lance was invited to throw to the tight ends, and Sam Darnold and Nick Mullens were invited as well. Two current 49er quarterbacks and one former quarterback were some familiar faces.

Kelce was named tight end of the year and got a bit “emotional.” The event is good-natured and fun for everyone in attendance.
