Watch Randy Moss Sign Justin Jefferson’s Custom Cleats
Not since Randy Moss was a rookie wide receiver has a player made such an impact on the Minnesota Vikings until Justin Jefferson came along.
Jefferson was selected 22nd overall in the 2020 NFL Draft and ended his rookie season with 88 receptions, 1400 yards and 7 touchdowns. Jefferson surpassed Moss' rookie record of 1,313 receiving yards, and put himself into the number one spot by passing Anquan Boldin's mark of 1,377 receiving yards in 2003.
When Jefferson broke Moss' record in week 17 the rookie wide receiver wore some cleats to honor the Hall of Fame receiver whose record he broke. After the game Jefferson said that he hoped to have those cleats signed by Moss.
Well, during the 2021 Pro Bowl coverage yesterday Moss was given the cleats to sign by Sam Ponder (yes, the former QB's wife) while they were virtually chatting with Jefferson. While signing them, Moss told Jefferson that he is his rookie of the year.
Jefferson has quickly become a fan favorite with his performance and his patent 'Griddy' dance. By the end of the season everyone was doing the 'Griddy', even Kirk Cousins gave it shot, it wasn't great.
During the Pro Bowl yesterday, Dalvin Cook scored 2 touchdowns in the game that was played virtually on Madden 21, the NFC team was controlled by Cardinals QB Kyler Murray (first quarter), NASCAR driver Bubba Wallace (second quarter), Seahawks S Jamal Adams (third quarter) and former NFL RB Marshawn Lynch (fourth quarter).
