In the spirit of the holiday season, Washington Redskins veteran running back Adrian Peterson gave rookie wide receiver Terry McLaurin a thoughtful gift on Wednesday.
Just days after Peterson moved into a tie for 4th on the Career Rushing TD list in NFL History, tieing Walter Payton, he gifted the ball he did it with to McLaurin for his helping hand in the play. McLaurin, who was spread out right on the play, held onto his block long enough for Peterson to reverse field and cut up into the endzone.
On the ball, Peterson wrote “Terry, here’s a token of appreciation! Great block youngster, you made this possible.”
Earlier in the week, McLaurin expressed that he was more excited about the block he had to spring AP than his 75-yard touchdown earlier in the game. Now he has a way to commemorate it for the rest of his life.
Good luck topping that gift this holiday season!
