Buffalo Bills Player Launches Unique Line of BBQ Themed Merch
First, there was Flutie Flakes. Then Stefon Diggs launched his own line of hot sauce. Now, a Buffalo Bills player wants you to join "Grills Mafia".
Buffalo Bills' Long Snapper, Reid Ferguson, has launched his own line of BBQ-inspired merchandise, and to go along with its grilling theme, he chose a name that would touch the hearts of Bills Mafia...Grills Mafia.
Ferguson, who grew up in Georgia, was signed by the Buffalo Bills as an undrafted free agent in 2016 and added to the team's practice squad that November. He was named the Bills' starting long snapper in 2017 and has held the position with the team ever since.
Growing up in the south, Ferguson is no stranger to good BBQ, and he is also no stranger to grilling. Bills Mafia fans are now jumping at the chance to be grill buddies with him.
What was the inspiration behind creating Grills Mafia, and the merchandise line to go along with it?
Ferguson told us:
It all started last spring when I started to post some of my BBQ and cooking pictures on social media. A lot of my followers were enjoying it, mainly Bills fans, and would reply with their own BBQ pics. Thus, the hashtag #GrillsMafia came to be. It quickly caught on within the Bills and grilling community and became a weekly event to post our grilling or cooking pictures along with the hashtag. The #GrillsMafia community has been nothing short of fantastic and always open to any level of grilling experience. We hope with our #GrillsMafia merchandise we can spread the word about our great grilling community while also donating a portion of the proceeds to various veteran charities across the country
Fun fact, Ferguson, a former LSU Tiger, isn't the only one in his family in the NFL, or the AFC East. His younger brother Blake Ferguson also attended LSU and is currently the Long Snapper for the Miami Dolphins.
