Cousins tweeted a photo on Wednesday of 20 boxes from the Memphis barbecue institution Rendezvous. Appropriately enough, the business, which has been around since 1948 and ships combo packages of ribs and pork shoulder starting at $99, calls HogsFly.com home.
“So, FedEx sent that to Rob Kelley and myself,” he said. “They ended up – smart of them – they said, ‘We’re going to send it to nine other guys who we felt contributed to both the air and ground contributions that day.’ So everybody from the offensive line, to Vernon [Davis] and Jordan [Reed], to the receivers… So there were, like, nine other guys there in that pile of boxes, but we all have a box marked perishable, and I think they put them in the freezer today, so we have got to pick them up on the way out and we’ll have plenty of barbecue the next few days to eat for each of us. But that was a cool bonus. Last year, we won the FedEx Air and Ground a couple times and I didn’t get anything. So it was cool to get something this time, thanks to FedEx.”
