Whether it's anime, golf or bird watching, NFL players have interests outside their line of work. In Jacksonville Jaguars safety Andre Cisco's case, he wanted to give standup comedy a shot and it looked like it went well based on a post on social media.'

"I just did my first standup comedy set at an open mic and I got laughs", Cisco said on Twitter. "I'm professionally funny". A fan wasn't fully convinced the former Syracuse Orangeman was funny and he let it be known", Anyone who has to tell people how funny they are, usually aren't that funny".

Cisco might have felt a bit generous because he then gave the aforementioned fan a taste of his comedy, pointing out he had paid for his blue checkmark. For those that aren't familiar, said checkmark used to be used to verify a person's identity on social media. That's it, the verification badgers weren't for showing off your status or how important you were, simply it was to prove that you were a real person, not a bot.

Nevertheless, some people still saw them as proof of relevance. Elon Musk now charges $8 to get the blue checkmark and has turned the process into a confusing mess. And it's now become somewhat of a running joke to point out that someone paid for the "verification". This is precisely what Cisco did when the fan said he was funny, and well, it was funny that he called him out.

Jacksonville Jaguars S Andre Cisco is having fun ahead of the 2023 NFL Season

Preparing for the NFL season takes plenty of time, and once players start to get acclimated to the rigors of the game, they need to be fully engaged. This is why you'll see Trevor Lawrence throwing the first pitch at the Jumbo Shrimp opener or Cisco trying his hand at comedy. They're having a bit of fun before they begin their preparation.

The Jacksonville Jaguars were one of the hottest team in the second half of the 2023. They got better as the season progressed and showed rescelience in comeback wins over the Baltimore Ravens, the Dallas Cowboys and the Tennessee Titans to finish with a winning record and qualify for the postseson.

The challenge will now be avoiding any potential setbacks and getting over the hump. Lawrence is aware that he needs to make a leap, so he'll be arranging workout sessions with his receivers. Just recently, a video of Lawrence throwing passes to Calvin Ridley surfaced on Instagram.

On the other hand, head coach Doug Pederson will need to find ways to keep his players focused. Last season, they were seen as underdogs. Now that they achieved something, they need to not let it get to their heads and Pederson will play a big role in that. Similarly, general manager Trent Baalke will need to reload the roster in the 2023 NFL Draft. Even though these might not seem like big issues, the Jags must address them if they want to keep up where they left off last season.

The Jaguars will surely be ready when it's time to shift their focus to preparing for the 2023 season. For the time being, Andre Cisco is taking advantage of some of the free time he has to try standup comedy.
