Todd Gurley, Jolly Ranchers let everyone know being a rookie sucks

Friday November 6th, 2015

Todd Gurley very much does not suck at playing football, but the Rams running back and Jolly Rancher have teamed up for a new commercial about how much being a rookie does suck and how hard candy can make it better.

Gurley first tweeted about his love of the candy back when he was still at Georgia, and now he has hooked up with the fruit-flavored sweet makers for his first ad campaign.

Gurley has been a bright spot for St. Louis in his rookie season, averaging over six yards per carry and running in three touchdowns in five games this season.
