While the NFL’s rookie class has donned their official practice gear during their minicamp’s and OTA’s, none of them have worn the uniform they’ll be rocking on Sunday afternoon.
That was until today as the NFL’s Player Association posted photos of the three star quarterbacks draped up in their new threads.
Attending the Rookie Premier photo shoot in Los Angeles (appears to be taking place at LA Memorial Coliseum), Johnny Manziel, Blake Bortles and Teddy Bridgewater all donned their Sunday best as they were joined by fellow rookies who did the same.
While I imagine getting on the practice field and being given a tour of your future stadium is quite the experience, I’d have to think actually putting on your real uniform was really a life changing moment for these guys. No, they haven’t experienced the feeling of running onto the field as an NFL player yet, but this might be the next best thing.
And yes, for those wondering, when the rookies (namely Johnny Manziel) arrived in the locker room to put on their uniforms, Drake was blasting through the speakers. Manziel wouldn’t have it any other way.
In addition to Manziel, Bortles and Bridgewater, fellow big names like Jadeveon Clowney showed up as well.
