Jefferson will be the first NFL player featured in conjunction with the NFL’s partnership with Epic Games, the creators of Fortnite.
Though I’m a long-time gamer myself, as anyone that’s followed the site for any length of time knows, I’ve never actually played Fortnite so I’m not completely familiar with how it plays outside of some of the basics. I do know that it’s incredibly popular and can be played on a variety of different platforms, including PC, PlayStation, and XBox.
Congratulations to Justin Jefferson on being included in the worldwide phenomenon that is Fortnite. Do we have any players out here in the crowd? Will you be hitting the virtual Griddy this Wednesday when you get the opportunity?
