Ja’Marr Chase helped popularize The Griddy dance, especially after touchdowns as the former LSU star turned in a sensational rookie season for the Cincinnati Bengals.

Now Chase and The Griddy are in the Madden NFL 23 video game, and Chase watched the dance and gave immediate approval on the field this week.

Chase last year overcame an early rash of dropped passes in the preseason to turn in a great rookie season. He broke the single-season franchise receiving record with 1,455 yards and set rookie records for touchdowns (13) and receptions (81) on his way to being honored as the AP Offensive Rookie of the Year. Chase’s 25 catches in the 2021 playoffs were an NFL rookie record, and he became the first rookie and fifth player ever with multiple 200-yard receiving games in a single regular season.

Backup quarterback Brandon Allen told reporters how he’s impressed with Chase.

“When Ja’Marr goes in the slot, he gets a lot of attention and we were able to suck them down on Ja’Marr and get Joe over the top for a hole shot,” Allen said, per Bengals.com. “You can put (Chase) wherever. He does it all.”
