Trevor Lawrence, man.

Since going No. 1 to the Jaguars in the 2021 NFL Draft, Lawrence has done an innumerable number of interviews, but still served up a viral moment for fans on Friday.

After heading to Jacksonville to meet with his new team and announce a Fanatics partnership, Lawrence joined NFL Network’s James Palmer at TIAA Bank Field — where the reporter approached the star quarterback with a “great opportunity.”

“I want to catch the first pass you ever throw as an NFL player,” said Palmer, who handed Lawrence a football. “What do you think, you ready?”

“I don’t know, man, I think I’m going to save it for some of my new teammates,” Lawrence, who appeared uncomfortable, replied.

Palmer put his head down and sighed, admitting, “Alright, hey, you gotta shoot your shot, I tried.”

Lawrence let out a harmless laugh and said he’s “excited” to have one of his teammates receive his first career NFL pass.

Nonetheless, he appreciated Palmer’s offer.

Palmer’s NFL Network cohort Mike Garafolo caught the segment and said he “cringed” over Lawrence’s “rejection,” in a tweet posted on Friday.

The internet followed suit, with many fans roasting Palmer’s attempt at “actually” receiving a pass from the No. 1 pick in the draft out of Clemson.

The Jags are hoping Lawrence will lead a major turnaround from last season, which ended on a 15-game losing streak.
