How does Washington Commanders quarterback Taylor Heinicke celebrate a win?
Heinicke, in his first start of the 2022 season, led the Commanders to a 23-21 win over the Green Bay Packers on Sunday. And, for the win, Heinicke earned a $125,000 bonus. Every time Heinicke plays at least 60% of Washington’s offensive snaps and the Commanders win, he receives the $125K bonus.
According to John Keim of ESPN, every time Heinicke and the Commanders win, he uses a portion of his bonus to buy a new pair of Jordans the next day. And they aren’t just any Jordans, as Heinicke buys a pair in the colors of the team Washington just beat.
After Sunday’s win, Heinicke spoke of his unique habit.
“Every time we get the win when I’m in the training room the next day, I always buy myself a pair of [Jordans],” Heinicke said per Keim.

“Tomorrow, I’ll probably buy myself green and yellow Js,” he said, referring to Green Bay’s colors.
