Article Summary:

Cincinnati’s Ja’Marr Chase, Kansas City’s Clyde Edwards-Helaire, the Los Angeles Rams’ Odell Beckham Jr. and Jacksonville’s DJ Chark Jr., all of whom share LSU ties with Jefferson, have helped The Griddy spread across the NFL.

Plenty of players ran with the freedom to express their creativity when the NFL relaxed its rules on end zone celebrations in 2017, from coordinating a game of Duck, Duck, Goose to orchestrating the limbo with teammates.

Throw your B’s, Griddy … gotta lift your knees and Griddy … score six, whole team go Griddy … score six, whole team get litty.

The dance hails from Jefferson’s native Louisiana and was introduced to him during his quick rise from a virtually unknown recruit to national champion at LSU. The Griddy is more than just a short-lived TikTok trend or dance of the moment – it’s embedded throughout an NFL landscape loaded with players from Louisiana.

‘That’s his dance’

Chase brought the dance to LSU, but it was Jefferson who became The Griddy ringleader in the locker room.
