The Christmas spirit is strong with the Cincinnati Bengals. While the team prepares for a run in the NFL playoffs, four team leaders decided to purchase gifts for their respective position segments.
It may be safe to say the defensive line deservingly got the best gifts, according to ESPN:
Offensive linemenAndrew Whitworth and Andre Smith pitched in to get every other offensive player a pair of personalized Uggs slippers, a Bose sound machine and gift certificates to Jeff Ruby’s, an upscale Cincinnati steakhouse.
Defensive tackles Domata Peko and Geno Atkins collaborated to give each of their defensive teammates PlayStation 4s. Brand new PS4 video game consoles cost about $400.
“It makes guys feel appreciated and feel like guys support them,” Whitworth said of the gestures.
Hopefully, they’ve been nice enough that Santa brings them a Super Bowl, because that’s all Giovani Bernard wants:
Dear Santa, you can keep all of my gifts. I just want a Super Bowl ring. No pressure !
