Jevon Holland didn’t just make the Dolphins and their fans happy with his 99-yard touchdown last week … he also got to upgrade his entertainment room AND line his pockets with some extra cash for the score too!!
The Dolphins safety broke the whole situation down with Michael Babcock on the “TMZ Sports TV Show” on FS1 on Tuesday … revealing he had no idea what was about to come his way after he scored the improbable TD in a win over the Jets on Black Friday.
It turns out, as part of a preseason promo called the “Ultimate Gameday Upgrade,” TCL was offering to hand out a million dollars worth of 98-inch TVs if a player scored a 98-yard-or-longer touchdown during the Friday Night Football contest.
And, after Holland did it … TCL decided to make him a spokesperson as well as give him one of their 98-inchers — things he was very clearly thrilled about.
“It was cool!” said the 23-year-old former second-round pick, who’s still on his rookie contract. “I was excited.”
Holland said all weekend he heard from fans who also received the 98-inch TVs as part of the promo … and he thought all the love “was awesome.”
In even more fortunate news for Holland, he also said he happens to have a wall big enough to fit the TV — though just barely!!
Holland talked with us about the Dolphins’ successful year so far as well — and he had nothing but praise for his head coach Mike McDaniel, who he called a truly authentic leader.
