Every year we hear about NFL quarterbacks and running backs getting rather lavish gifts for their offensive lines as a “thank you” for a season’s worth of protection. Custom suits and televisions are not uncommon, but Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Carson Wentz went down a different road.

Wentz opted to get his entire offensive line customized Beretta Silver Pigeon shotguns, which retail for approximately $2,000 apiece, according to ESPN.
The rookie quarterback endeared himself to the men up front by buying each of them a Beretta shotgun for Christmas. Each is personalized with the player’s number engraved on the butt of the gun.
“I haven’t really held a gun or anything before,” rookie Isaac Seumalo told ESPN. “But I’m more than thankful for it. It looks sweet. Carson said he’d teach me how to use it and all that good stuff.”
Col. Applegate's Fitz Special is truly a one-of-a-kind firearm with deep historical significance.
