It appears at the moment’s NFL stars do not prioritize breakfast as a lot as their predecessors. Six-time Professional Bowl receiver Chad Johnson invited all present Professional Bowlers – and particularly 49ers receiver Deebo Samuel and Cowboys cornerback Trevon Diggs – to an IHOP breakfast in Las Vegas, the place the sport is ready to happen Sunday. 

Not one of the Professional Bowlers accepted Johnson’s social-media invites, nevertheless, forcing the previous Cincinnati Bengals star to eat alone. Johnson described the state of affairs as “humorous but in addition unhappy.” 

In a follow-up tweet, Johnson claimed the Professional Bowlers did not be a part of him at IHOP as a result of they stated it was “too early.” Johnson disputed their rationalization, saying “they awakened early for crew conferences for six months in the course of the season however will not get up for me & free pancakes.” 

The Professional Bowlers’ absence could have left Johnson to his personal sales space at IHOP, however that does not essentially imply his server misplaced out on tip cash. In Could 2020, simply after Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis reopened the state’s dine-in capability to 25%, Johnson tipped $1,000 on a $37.40 invoice at an area restaurant

Johnson, 44, final performed for the New England Patriots in 2011. The 2-time All-Professional made his mark within the NFL with the Bengals, although, clearing 1,100 receiving yards in six-straight seasons from 2002-2007. 

One would suppose a resume like that will draw a minimum of a handful of Professional Bowlers to Johnson’s IHOP breakfast, however that clearly wasn’t the case Thursday.
