Texas linebacker Malik Jefferson gets some free pizza, but it needs to be gluten-free.
Jefferson was the 78th overall pick in the draft, one of the Cincinnati Bengals’ two third-round choices. Pizza Hut decided to give free pizza for a year to the 14th pick in the third round.
Pizza Hut became the NFL’s official pizza this season. The promotion was labeled the Pi Pick: third round, 14th pick, or 3.14.
Jefferson learned about the pizza promotion after he was picked.
“How did that happen?” he said, during a conference call. “I’m actually gluten-free, but I like sausage.”
