Justin Jefferson is the first American Football player to get a skin in the "Fortnite" NFL collaboration and would be fitted with an appropriate emote called "Get Griddy" to celebrate the player's soon-arrival in-game. While there were NFL team outfits and skins via the battle royale before, never was it done in "Fortnite" history to bring a football player in the game.
This comes after the popular Paris Saint-Germain Forward and professional soccer (football) player Neymar Jr., also gets his skin debut for the battle royale game. Neymar Jr. is also known for being a celebrated gamer for different action shooting games like "Counter-Strike: Global Offensive," after he demonstrated his pistol skills via Twitch streams.
While this season (Chapter 2, Season 6) would focus on the "biggest Fortnite" crossover there would be with the Zero Point Crisis theme, it has been releasing two subsequent professional athletes in the process. While there is not much explanation about Zero Crisis becoming an all-star sporting event, players are in for a treat as these skins are known to come with exciting missions to accomplish.

Jefferson has been drafted by the Minnesota Vikings on the First Round of the 2020 NFL Draft, joining the team in the same year, and has brought a lot of recognition for them since his arrival.

According to the Vikings, Jefferson was known to be playing "Fortnite" since its formative years in 2017 and has been a fan ever since.
