After every NFL game, players come to midfield to congratulate each other on a job well done and to show sportsmanship. However, there are also players that use the midfield meetings between the two teams to exchange gifts and memorabilia from the game that will help them document their careers later down the line.

For Arizona Cardinals cornerback Patrick Peterson and Atlanta Falcons wide receiver Harry Douglas, that meant signing and exchanging their jerseys after the game.

Peterson has often exchanged jerseys with opposing wide receivers after games, which is a clear sign of respect and appreciation for the effort that went in to their head-to-head match up. Douglas should be honored that he joins the likes of Calvin Johnson when it comes to receiving Peterson’s game jersey.

Here is another photo of the two men exchanging jerseys:

It’s always great to see this kind of mutual respect from the players, and you know it means Peterson must have one heck of a shrine that he is building to commemorate his playing days in the NFL.
