Well, looks like someone's excited to a member of the Cleveland Browns! David Njoku is chomping so hard at the bit to get out on the field with his brand new teammates thaaaaaat he can't even recognize the most accomplished member of the team he's joining. I don't want to bash the guy too hard because the casual football fan could easily mistake Joe Thomas for a coach when he doesn't have pads on. I guess I just assumed that a 20 year tight end that just got selected in the first round of the NFL draft would study the roster more than the dude who just uses football as an excuse to eat and drink in excess on Sunday afternoons. I could be wrong, but putting in the effort to identify a couple guys you are joining at a work dinner seems like a good idea. Especially when one of those guys happens to be one of the best in the league at his position, and could potentially be lining up next to you in a few short months.
I wouldn't expect David Njoku to be able to put every name to every face, but maybe - just maybe - it would be wise to commit the Paul Bunyan-esque appearance of the only Pro Bowler on the roster to memory. David Njoku basically just showed up to his new job for the first time and asked the Vice President of the company if he could show him how to configure the office email. Maybe thinking that all monstrous white men look alike isn't the most inexcusable of mistakes, but it's definitely not one that's made by professionals.
