New York Jets running back Breece Hall was at Newark Airport over the weekend when an apparent autograph seeker appeared to hassle the NFL player as he was getting his bag from baggage claim.

A video obtained by TMZ Sports showed the man trying to get an autograph. He can be heard saying to Hall’s group, “If you’re gonna slap me, slap me.”

Hall bounced back in 2023 after he suffered a season-ending injury in his rookie year. He played in all 17 games for the Jets, racking up 994 yards and five touchdowns on the ground. He also had 76 catches for 591 yards and four touchdowns, showing just how valuable he is on offense.

While the Jets had a tough season, Hall was one of the few bright spots to shine.
