The NFL’s final roster cut day can be a grueling process for players, when teams trim their roster from 80 to 53 players. Usually, when players are called into a meeting with the general manager and head coach, it’s to tell them they’re being let go.

But in the latest episode of 1920 Football Drive, the Bears’ behind-the-scenes series that’s taken fans inside training camp, general manager Ryan Pace and head coach Matt Nagy wanted to highlight the good that comes with building the 53-man roster.

There were a couple of roster-bubble players who made the cut in tight end Jesper Horsted and linebacker Caleb Johnson — both of whom impressed during preseason — and Pace and Nagy wanted to deliver the news personally. And it was amazing.

Watch both Horsted and Johnson learn they’ve achieved their goal of making the 53-man roster and we dare you not to smile.
