In a touching and then suddenly highly viral moment, newly drafted Atlanta Falcons pass-rusher Takkarist McKinley brought a photo of his grandmother onto the stage at the draft after he was picked at No. 26 overall Thursday.
An emotional McKinley said his late grandmother pushed him to pursue his dream of becoming an NFL player.
Then McKinley’s emotions got away from him and he dropped an F-bomb on live television.
McKinley immediately apologized for the slip-up, adding, “Fine me later, this means everything to me.”
