The San Francisco 49ers have a pretty big game coming up on Sunday evening, but as players warmed up for the NFC Championship against the Green Bay Packers, they were joined by a franchise legend: Jerry Rice.

In true G.O.A.T. behavior, the 57-year-old Rice, wearing a suit with sneakers, was on the turf at Levi’s Stadium running end-zone routes and catching deep passes.

The early-arriving crowd loved it, of course.

Rice also caught some deep passes from backup quarterback Nick Mullens.

Rice was renowned for his devotion to workouts during his playing career, particularly a grueling hill workout, and it’s pretty clear he’s still putting in the time on his fitness.
