In what some might call a scene from a movie, two popular NFL stars were talking about getting each other's jersey's signed. The sports stars are known as Khalil Mack and Russel Wilson.
The incident was posted on Twitter from the official ESPN account captioned with Football = family. It drew people in the comment section to chat about all the possibilities of what they thought the secret part to this little after-game meetup was all about. Some users stated that it was just good sportsmanship while others talked about Lisa Stalter being given the pen used during the signing.
Surrounded by fascinated journalists, Russel Wilson signed his jersey for Khalil Mack. While Khalil then offered to sign his own jersey for Russel. This would mean that the two of them either just started a little friendship or it means that they're both fans of each other and have been waiting for ages to get their jersey signed.
Khalil could not take his jersey off on the spot since many defenders actually have large pads, which means that their jerseys are tightened to their bodies. This ultimately leads to the jersey needing more people to remove or ends up being cut off, one of which definitely happened in the locker room.
The video really does show something that's good to see. Most people often forget how these players are people too and they could easily be fans of each other or even friends. This is why it's a great site to see when two players are signing each other's jerseys. It shows communication and a level of both maturity and sportsmanship that most people in the bleachers will forget about down the line.
Most of the time, people would do this in private but this was done in person, which will naturally draw some attention to these players.
Overall, people were really drawn to this little meetup because it's for one rare and it shows good sportsmanship. Both players likely got jerseys signed by each other, even if one of them had to do it later, it's still signed and that's what matters.
