Aside from the five-star array of food and the over 25 NFL players in attendance, this year’s Players Tailgate created a social experience unlike any other. The ability to have yourself broadcast on Bullseye’s first “social media wall” and interact with players and celebrities gave guests the opportunities to get the official VIP treatment. We’ve gathered the best posts from the 2016 Players Tailgate!
