When it comes to playing in the NFL, there's nothing like scoring your first professional touchdown, and Indianapolis Colts tight end Kylen Granson made sure to commemorate it in a way he'd never forget.
A fourth-round pick in the 2021 NFL Draft out of SMU, Granson had gone the first 31 game of his NFL career without reaching the endzone while hauling in 46 catches 447 yards. But that all changed on Sunday against the Houston Texans, as backup quarterback Gardner Minshew found the tight end on a four-yard pass near the goal line. Granson reached across the endzone for the score just before halftime. Granson's touchdown put the Colts up 28-10, and they went on to win 31-20.
'It’s finally here'
Waiting more than two seasons for your first NFL touchdown might have been painful, but Granson made sure to honor it in a special way. On Instagram, the 25-year-ol shared several photos of himself and the football he scored with, posing as if it was a newborn photoshoot. He even donned a flower on his ear alongside his girlfriend.
