NFL Rookie Suffers Awkward Defeat Off The Field Because Workers Didn’t Know Him


NFL point returnee Britain Covey is two games into his rookie season with the Philadelphia Eagles. However, his ties to the team haven’t been strengthened enough for him to be noticed by Philly’s parking attendants.

Covey would park his car in a private player parking lot outside Lincoln Financial Field. Teammates had told him to explain to the parking attendants that he had been “raised” to the Eagles active roster and had to be let in.

But when Covey drove to the entrance of the site with a parking pass for the Eagles practice crew, the attendants did not recognize him.

“When I told them I was ‘exalted,’ they said, ‘Look, you don’t have a pass for this.’ And I said, ‘No, I’m a player!’ And they said, “We’re sorry, man,” Covey recalled.

“I do not think so” [they knew who I was], which is understandable. I mean, I have to prove myself in Philadelphia before I deserve to be there,” he added.

Covey later claimed to park between Eagles tailgaters and was eventually let into the game where he racked up three kick returns for a total of 14 yards.

The dismissal did not lead to bad luck for Philadelphia. The Eagles defeated the Vikings 24-7 on Monday evening.
