Much to his surprise Authentic Lamar Jackson Jersey , a $50 act of kindness made Arizona Cardinals tight end Jermaine Gresham an internet hero.

"It was crazy," he said after the Cardinals went through voluntary workouts Tuesday. "I really wasn't expecting it."

It all started when Gresham was standing in line behind Delilah Cassidy at an American Airlines gate at Los Angeles International Airport.

He could hear her being told that under the airline's policy, she had to pay $25 for each of two carry-ons that wouldn't fit under her seat. She had cash but it wasn't accepted at the gate so she was in danger of missing her flight. So Gresham pulled out his credit card and paid, a random act of kindness.

"That's pretty much what it was," he said. "I hope anyone would have done that. I don't know. I just felt that's how I was raised, my core values. Somebody in distress, just help them out. Nothing more, nothing less."

To say Cassidy was grateful is an understatement.

"She was very nice," Gresham said. "She was very, very, very appreciative. She thanked me I want to say maybe 20 times."

She told azcentral that she was in tears as she boarded the plane.

"I gave him this huge hug," she said. "I was crying into Jermaine Gresham. I didn't know it was him."

Cassidy said that when they landed, she offered to pay him in cash but he declined and told her to pay it forward.

She had her photo taken with Gresham and told her story on Twitter.

It went viral.

Gresham had no idea until he heard from a Cardinals employee who follows such things.

"He said 49ers Cheap Jerseys , 'You're a viral sensation,' I said, 'For what? I didn't get arrested,'" Gresham said. "He sent me this picture and everything and I was like, 'Oh, wow.'"

He seemed surprised that what he considered a small gesture wound up being such a big deal.

"I was right there," he said. "I had my wallet in my pocket. Just here, swipe my card. It's 50 bucks. Catch your flight. There wasn't much to it."

Gresham, who is recovering from Achilles tendon surgery, said he made a great investment.

"I hope everybody in the world would do something like that," Gresham said. "Seeing her smile and her appreciation was worth it 10 times over."

Of course he couldn't escape some gentle ribbing from teammates.

"That's the Walter Payton Man of the Year right there," offensive tackle D.J. Humphries said as he walked by.

KIRK SPEAKS: Rookie wide receiver Christian Kirk spoke to reporters for the first time since reports surfaced of his Feb. 3 arrest outside the Waste Management Phoenix Open golf tournament on charges of destruction of property and disorderly conduct. He and a friend had been accused of throwing rocks at cars. Police said Kirk appeared intoxicated at the time.

The charges were later dropped.

"Obviously there was a negative response to it," Kirk Jack Mewhort Jersey , a second-round draft pick out of Texas A&M, said of the publicity surrounding the incident. "But you've just got to block those things out and hold true to who you are and move on."

Kirk was a top high school prospect born and raised in Scottsdale, Arizona. The Cardinals said they knew of the arrest when they drafted him but said they were confident it was not indicative of a larger problem.

"I told them the truth and they trusted in me, trusted in the type of person I was," he said.

Now it's back to football on a team where he figures to play a significant role.

"I'm just really happy it's all cleared up," Kirk said. "I'm just glad to be back and showing people I am what I am."

Mark Scheifele scored the only goal in a shootout and the Winnipeg Jets clinched a playoff spot with a 5-4 win over the Nashville Predators on Sunday night.

The Jets are in the postseason for the first time since 2014-15 and just the second time since their relocation from Atlanta before the 2011-12 season. The franchise hasn’t won a playoff series since 2007.

Jets rookie Kyle Connor scored a power-play goal and had two assists, giving him seven goals in six games. That includes a pair of overtime goals in Winnipeg’s previous two games and gives him 29 on the season. That’s tied with Vancouver’s Brock Boeser for the rookie goal scoring lead. Boeser’s season ended March 5 with a fracture in his lower back.

Dustin Byfuglien also scored on the power play, and Bryan Little and Blake Wheeler each added a goal and an assist for Winnipeg.

Kyle Turris, Ryan Ellis, and Viktor Arvidsson each had a goal and an assist, and Roman Josi also scored for the Predators.

PENGUINS 5, FLYERS 4, OT

PITTSBURGH (AP) – Bryan Rust redirected a pass from Sidney Crosby 2:25 into overtime and Pittsburgh finished off a season sweep of Philadelphia.

The Flyers tied it on Sean Couturier’s goal with 43 seconds left in regulation Drew Stafford Jersey , but the Penguins controlled the extra period. Rust ended it when he got his stick down in time to get a piece of Crosby’s pass from the top of the left circle and knock it by Petr Mrazek to give the Penguins their first sweep of Philadelphia since the 2006-07 season.

Crosby’s spectacular goal 17 seconds into the third period gave Pittsburgh a 4-3 advantage. Crosby held off Couturier high in the zone, skated to the left dot and ripped a wrist shot over Philadelphia defenseman Shayne Gostisbehere and Mrazek’s glove. Couturier exacted a bit of revenge when he knotted it late to assure the Flyers of at least a point.

Still, the Penguins pulled within three points of first-place Washington in the Metropolitan Division and moved two points clear of Philadelphia, which pulled into a third-place tie with Columbus.

BRUINS 2, WILD 1, OT

ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) – Brad Marchand scored 28 seconds into overtime to lift Boston over Minnesota.

Tuukka Rask made 24 saves and David Pastrnak also scored for the Bruins, who improved to 47-17-10.

Marchand got his second goal in two games and his third in a four-game span. His 33rd of the season was his eighth game-winner, tying a career high. Marchand also assisted on the first goal.

Minnesota has earned a point in five straight games. Alex Stalock got the start in net after Devan Dubnyk started Saturday’s win against Nashville. Stalock made 26 saves.

CANUCKS 4, STARS 1

DALLAS (AP) – Reid Boucher and Nic Dowd scored rare goals on the power play, and Vancouver rallied to beat reeling Dallas.

Dallas’ Mattias Janmark started the scoring with a short-handed goal in the first period, but Boucher tied it on the same man advantage. It was Boucher’s third goal this season, all coming over two games in Dallas.

Jake Virtanen added a third-period goal and Tyler Motte scored into an empty net for Vancouver Abry Jones Jersey , which won for only the second time in 10 games.

The Stars are on an 0-6-2 skid and have all but fallen out of playoff contention.

DUCKS 5, OILERS 4, OT

EDMONTON, Alberta (AP) – Hampus Lindholm scored 1:21 into overtime to lift the Anaheim Ducks over the Edmonton Oilers.

Adam Henrique had two goals and Josh Manson and Corey Perry also scored for the Ducks, who are on a 5-0-1 streak.

Connor McDavid, Ty Rattie, Leon Draisaitl and Ethan Bear scored for the Oilers, who ended a three-game winning streak.

Anaheim has 91 points and is two up on the Los Angeles Kings (89) for third in the Pacific Division.
