Topps held a photo shoot recently to get shots of all the NFL rookies in their new uniforms. Former Longhorn running back [tag]Jamaal Charles[/tag] was one of the players on hand. It’s the first time I’ve seen Jamaal in a Kansas City Chiefs jersey.

They’ve posted a ton of interviews from the event on YouTube, many of which are disappointingly uninteresting. This age group just didn’t collect cards like mine did, plus football cards were never as popular as baseball.

Watch the interview with JC below:

Jamaal still isn’t exactly the world’s best public speaker but he’s gotten much more comfortable in interviews than when he first came to Texas.

Those can’t be regular sized shoulder pads by the way. He looks tiny.

    I don’t know if Jamal remembers me, but I was his 6th grade reading teacher. In addition to being a good athlete, he was a good student and a great kid! I’ve been following his career closely since middle school. I’m a UT grad, so it’s been especially exciting to watch him play for them. I’m so proud of him and excited for him and his success – not just for his athletic accomplishments, but also for developing into a fine person! Keep setting goals, Jamaal! I’ll be seeing you in the NFL season. Love ya!
