A 10-year-old boy wearing Colin Kaepernick’s jersey scored some points with two NFL players.
His prize: An Xbox One.
The boy, named Jaden, was browsing the merchandise in a GameStop at a Sterling, Va., shopping center when he met two men, according to a story in The Washington Post.

Those men were Rob Kelley and Keith Marshall, running backs for the Washington Redskins. And somewhere in conversation, those two men offered to get Jaden the video game console.
Jaden ran into another store, where his grandmother was getting makeup, and told her “two guys want to buy me an Xbox,” the Post reports.
She was skeptical.
“The first thing I’m thinking is there’s some pedophile trying to buy my grandson an Xbox,” Jaden’s grandmother, Saundra Watts, told the Post. “So I’m like, I’m going to bust up in there and bust his bubble.”
But the offer was legit and the console was purchased.
“I wish someone would’ve done something like that for me when I was growing up,” Kelley told the Post, adding, “To make an impact on somebody, I have no problem with it.”
