– Juwan Johnson –
“No, you aren’t. “Are you telling the truth to me?” That was the reaction of Juwan’s wife, Chanen Johnson when he told her he had been called up from the practice squad.
Chan and Juwan Johnson have been together since his days at Penn State University, so “she knows how hard I worked to even get here,” he said in the caption.
After going undrafted, the wide receiver was signed by the New Orleans Saints in April.
The NFL should have recorded his wife’s reaction when he told her he was going to play against the Carolina Panthers on Sunday.
Juwan Johnson Tells His Wife That He Was Brought Up From the Practice Squad
The video has been viewed over 2.3 million times. While Juwan is known for his athleticism on the football field, the couple is known for their adorable relationship, which they frequently showcase on their various social media platforms.
Chan couldn’t stop crying because she knew this was what Juwan had worked his entire life for. “She melts my heart,” said the wide receiver of his wife.
While Juwan did not see any playing time, Chan is still proud of her man.
However, Juwan had to respond to some of his detractors following his NFL debut
after a photo of him kneeling and praying before the game was misinterpreted as him kneeling during the national anthem.
According to NOLA.com, the three athletes who were called up on Sunday, along with offensive lineman Will Clapp and fellow wide receiver Austin Carr, have all been “reverted back to the practice squad Monday after being elevated to the active roster for Sunday’s game against the Panthers.” It’s unclear when Juwan will have another chance to shine on the big stage.
