Just last week, Dallas Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott bought his offensive line ATVs.
Not to be outdone, Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson gave his linemen curved-screen TVs and first-class plane tickets to anywhere they want to go.
Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Carson Wentz decided to go with something more in line with his North Dakota upbringing.
According to ESPN’s Tim McManus, the rookie QB is gifting his teammates Beretta shotguns.
“The rookie quarterback endeared himself to the men up front by buying each of them a Beretta shotgun for Christmas. Each is personalized with the player’s number engraved on the butt of the gun.
“This is an awesome gun. I’m excited about it,” said Allen Barbre, a fellow hunter. Barbre believes the Beretta model is a Silver Pigeon, which retails around $2,000 a pop. “I don’t know if I’ll shoot it, though. It’s pretty nice.”
“I like to go clay shooting and stuff,” added Brandon Brooks. “All I’ve got is a home defense tactical shotgun, short-barrel, so I was looking for one of these.”
“I haven’t really held a gun or anything before,” rookie Isaac Seumalo said. “But I’m more than thankful for it. It looks sweet. Carson said he’d teach me how to use it and all that good stuff.”
