Chris Godwin, Nick Scott Swap Jerseys Following Buccaneers-Rams Game

Former Penn State football stars Chris Godwin and Nick Scott exchanged jerseys postgame after the Tampa Bay Buccaneers defeated the Los Angeles Rams Sunday.

The former Nittany Lion standouts were both members of Penn State’s 2016 Big Ten Championship team. They met on-field after the high-scoring contest, posing for a photograph as each held the other’s jersey.

They are the latest Nittany Lion duo to partake in the popular NFL tradition, following in the footsteps of Saquon Barkley and Sean Lee who did so earlier in the season. Last year, Barkley and Godwin, along with Grant Haley, Donovan Smith, and Nate Stupar, also swapped jerseys following the Giants vs. Buccaneers game.

Godwin, who led the Buccaneers in receiving with 12 receptions for 172 yards and two touchdowns, was drafted No. 84 overall by Tampa Bay in the third round of the 2017 NFL draft. The wideout is best known for his breakout sophomore season in which he recorded 1,101 receiving yards and five touchdowns.

Scott, a safety, emerged during his senior season in Happy Valley, making 12 starts including a career-high nine-tackle performance in the 2018 season opener against Appalachian State, which Penn State won 45-38 in overtime. Scott was drafted No. 243 overall by the Rams in the seventh round of the 2019 NFL draft.
