Newly drafted NFL QB leaves $300 tip at lunch for heartwarming reason

Share

There was much consternation about Josh Rosen.

Talent was never an issue for the former UCLA quarterback — he threw 26 touchdown passes last season — but character was a red flag.

From wearing a baseball cap criticizing then-presidential candidate Donald Trump — on a golf course owned by Trump — to installing a hot tub in his dorm room, Rosen hasn’t really done himself any favors.

That may have been part of the reason he fell on draft night from a potential top overall pick to number 10.

While Arizona traded up to get him, Rosen didn’t do much to help his cause by saying there were nine mistakes made before his selection.

This week, though, Rosen took a big step toward improving his image.

Last April, former Cardinals tight end Todd Heap was behind the wheel when his truck accidentally ran over his 3-year-old daughter.

The unspeakable tragedy spurred the Heap family to begin a movement called Hugs From Holly Day.

One way those who wish to pay tribute to the cause can do so is by performing a random act of kindness.

Do you expect Josh Rosen to succeed in the NFL?

That brings us back to Rosen, who recently took his mother out for sushi at an Arizona restaurant.

The bill was $94.50, but Rosen left a tip of $300 with a note that read, #HugsfromHollyday.


This was part of a movement started by the Heaps, who sent flower arrangements to each NFL team, most notably Todd’s former squads, the Cardinals and Ravens.

None of this, of course, will bring Holly back, nor will it show if Rosen can be the franchise quarterback Arizona needs, but it was certainly a nice gesture, and it will help keep Holly’s memory alive forever.
