NFL Network host Rachel Bonnetta jokes that she was “banned” from the NFL Combine for appearing at last year’s Showcase.
In 2022, cameras caught the 31-year-old reporter holding a stopwatch as she sat in the stands at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis.
Bonnetta appears to be measuring a potential client’s run when she appears on screen.
The football reporter and moderator seems completely immersed in the task.
She is seen hilariously pressing the stopwatch button with great intensity.
And you can hear NFL Network commentators poking fun at Bonnetta’s serious behavior.
“Look at the face, the determination,” says one.
Bonnetta tweeted the clip of her cameo on Friday.
And she joked that the NFL won’t let her back to the Combine because of her performance last year.
“I was banned from the combine,” she wrote in the Post.
