Call it his own "Redemption Song."
Nico Marley, the grandson of reggae legend Bob Marley, inked an NFL contract with Washington yesterday after being an undrafted free agent out of Tulane University in New Orleans.
Despite his royal lineage, Nico getting his NFL shot is a real underdog story, especially considering that he's an undersized linebacker at 5-foot-8. The 22-year-old is a hard hitter, however, and one that Washington sorely needs.
That and he sets quite the thirst trap on his Instagram account. Meet Nico Marley.
Go ahead and live your dreams, young man!
#HTTR on deck.
"#WeForeverWorking" ... we love that.
Unbreakable father-son bond right here.
A lot of "handsome" comments from the ladies ... and we're not mad at all.
We're sure Tulane appreciated him right back.
Nico is a good kid. We're cheering for him to have a long, productive and healthy NFL career. One Love!
