New Orleans Saints rookie kicker Blake Grupe had a tough time getting on the field before Sunday’s preseason game against the Kansas City Chiefs because he didn’t have “credentials.”

Even after the rookie drilled the game-winning 31-yard field goal in the waning seconds of the fourth quarter to give the Saints a 26-24 victory, he was stopped again and was mistaken for a fan.

Grupe, who is 5-foot-7 and 156 pounds, was apparently not recognizable to security personnel, who apparently thought he was just another fan trying to sneak into the game.

Grupe took to Twitter to share his funny experience, writing, “I guess I don’t look like a football player.”

He also posted a photo of himself being stopped by security, with the caption, “When you hit the game-winning field goal but security still doesn’t believe you’re a player.”

Grupe’s story has gone viral on social media, with many people finding it humorous. However, some have also expressed concern that security at NFL games is not as tight as it should be.

It is unclear why security did not recognize Grupe, who is listed on the Saints’ roster. However, it is possible that they were not expecting to see a kicker who is so small and unassuming.

Whatever the reason, Grupe’s experience is a reminder that even NFL players can be mistaken for fans. And it is also a reminder that security at NFL games should be more vigilant in order to prevent unauthorized people from entering the stadium.

Grupe’s story is a funny one, but it also raises some important questions about security at NFL games. Hopefully, this incident will lead to a review of security procedures and a greater emphasis on preventing unauthorized people from entering the stadium.
