NFL legend surprises Bears rookie Tyler Scott with thoughtful video message

The NFL is welcoming a new group of rookies this season, and some of those players received personal video messages from NFL greats they watched growing up.

In a new Fanatics video, Bears fourth-round wide receiver Tyler Scott was surprised by his idol, legendary running back Adrian Peterson, who gave Scott a pep talk ahead of his rookie season.

“It’s truly a blessing to be in the position that you’re in,” Peterson said to Scott in the video. “Remember this, you get out what you put in.”

Scott got emotional during the video message, which brought him to tears, explaining the significance of the quote Peterson shared. It’s something that Scott’s father told him as a kid, and still does till this day.

“(It) means a lot,” Scott said.

Later on Twitter, Scott called it “a surreal moment” and jokingly wondered if his father had reached out to Peterson ahead of time.

Some of the other NFL legends who appeared included Tom Brady, Jerry Rice, Joe Montana, Peyton Manning, Aaron Rodgers, Calvin Johnson Jr., Barry Sanders, Ray Lewis, Odell Beckham Jr., Eric Dickerson, LaDainian Tomlinson, Rob Gronkowski, Davante Adams and George Kittle.
