Thursday night’s first round of the NFL Draft gave us a sneak peek at war rooms around the league, but football fans couldn’t help but notice Mike Vrabel’s Titans setup.
When Vrabel and the Titans were on the clock, two teenagers stole the show. One was in a superhero costume. The other appeared to be sporting a mullet and wearing Vrabel’s Pro Bowl jersey.
“It’s been a long quarantine over here, man,” Vrabel said, per The Associated Press. “We’ve got a bunch of 19- and 18-year-old kids, and, you know, they’re stir crazy. And again, they saw all the other kids as the draft wore on and they said, well, we’ll give our own little spin to it. It was fun.”
Was there another son caught on camera in the bathroom?
“Tyler was sitting on a bar stool next to his mom, and as fate would have it, it came across as probably something other than that,” Vrabel said of his son Tyler, an offensive lineman at Boston College. “Carter and Jackson wanted to be a part of it and stand behind me. Tyler wanted nothing to do with it. So, you know, we’ll see where Tyler goes and tries to head back to Boston College here when things clean up.”
The suit worn by Jackson, a friend of Vrabel’s younger son Carter, originally was planned to help attract more fans to their high school’s baseball games this spring. The suit mimics the Freeze, an in-game race promotion by the Atlanta Braves, according to a report.
“I think that probably came together in about 10 or 15 minutes,” Vrabel said.
