It's the JR Sport Brief Show here with you on CBS Sports Radio only, days away from the big game. And right now we got to check in with some folks in Vegas who are going to tell us about the game, tell us about their life, give us all that insight.

It's New Orleans Saints tight end Juwan Johnson, his lovely wife, Shannon. How are y'all doing? Oh man, blessed man. It's good to talk to you. No doubt about it. How's the vibe out in Las Vegas right now? Crazy. It's insane out here, honestly. It's great.

It's a little chilly, but it's just nothing different than any other place in America right now. Vibes are great though. Vibes are amazing. That's good. What have y'all had a chance to experience and we're going to get into, I feel like, well, at least you Juwan.

I feel like you live a double life, but we're going to get into that in a bit. What have y'all experienced so far this week in Vegas? Yeah, I mean, we've experienced a lot. I mean, we've hung out with a lot of other content creators, which has been great.

Got to meet up with them to talk to them. We also got to hang around our wife for a little bit. We got to chill for a little bit.

But we also got to be with some students who are able to talk to them and talk to them about social media, talk to them about football and just the way of just how sports is. And so that was great. Was with my wife and we had a great time. That's beautiful. That's beautiful.

Well, Juwan, you talk about, you know, social media, etc. And you are a tight end for the Saints. And Shan, I know you're at home. Congratulations on the addition to your family months ago. Congratulations there. Thank you. She's seven months old as of yesterday.

Beautiful, beautiful. Well, how did you guys get involved? Phyllis and Shan, how did you guys get involved in TikTok?

Millions and millions of people viewing and watching. How did that come about? I mean, 2020, everyone was doing nothing, just chilling and everyone hopped on the TikTok bandwagon. We were like, honestly, let's just try it out. See, like we were just bored having a good time. And sure enough, the video went viral and the rest is history. It kind of became our niche because it was a video about him having a girlfriend during the fall season. And like everyone loved it. They ate it up. So we just kept running with that. And here we are.

Well, that's beautiful. Well, Juwan, how do you balance everything that you have to do in the NFL with the Saints versus what you do at home? Does it feel like you're doing double work?

How does this how do you balance all of this? Well, yeah, I mean, well, you're always going to have work. I feel like, you know, when you're in football and that's work. But when you come home to a marriage, I mean, marriage is also work as well.

So learning how to balance everything and learning how to balance, you know, being a dad, being a being a husband and also being a content creator during the season. I'm less in the scene. As people know, like I've been a video here too. But then for the rest of time, just in football mode.

You lose MIA on the Internet whenever football season is around. Now it's great. That was great. Now I get to show my face a little bit more.

Oh, I haven't seen a while, but it's great. Just learning like how to balance and have boundaries. I think that was the biggest thing. Juwan and Shannon Johnson are joining us.

The JR Sportbreeze show on CBS Sports Radio. How is that for you, Shan? When you think about the work that you do at home, you think about the little girl that you have. You think about an online growing business.

How do you balance that out as well? It's tough. It's really hard when you work from home and you do something you love so much. And it's kind of like my job is to show people my life. So it's hard to shut it off sometimes, which we are working on.

Juwan's really good at that. I'm like, let's record everything we do. If we do something fun and cool, I'm like, well, we might as well record it and show it. But that's just where it's hard to figure out when to shut it off. But it's so much fun.

I love doing it. So it's like it doesn't even feel like a job to me. Oh, Juwan, we know you know all about hard work, making the league undrafted, working your way up, transitioning positions, wide receiver to tight end.

The same season ain't go the way people wanted it to go. For you moving forward and wherever you go, what are your thoughts on what you need to continue to do, man? Yeah, honestly, just it's always me versus me. You know, I try not to have it in a way where I'm always comparing myself for seeing what other guys are doing, because, you know, those are the guys who worked hard as well. So I can't take that away from them.

I can't take the things from guys happening on our team. I feel like the most content that I can be is, you know, doing what I feel good doing it, you know, working hard. And if something doesn't go well, I know I'll have another opportunity to do it again.

So just more so it's not about everybody else. It's more about me and just going forward and just playing the ball. I can play. I know I'm a really good player.

Oh, Shan, for you as well. I know this entire experience is just it's more and more and more. What are you taking in from from being out in Vegas, the first Super Bowl? We've seen so much more empowerment for women, especially in the NFL.

How are you approaching this current situation? I'm loving it. It's so nice that I feel like the women involved in the NFL are getting so much more attention than ever before. I feel like there's always been a stereotype around the women or the girls who are married to or dating the athlete.

And it's just it's all wrong. And I feel like we're really just pushing to like give us the attention we deserve. And it's going in such a great way. And honestly, I feel like this year is the year where the girls matter a little.

Guys, I'm not going to lie. So like it's here. I'm here for it.

It's amazing. Juwan and Shannon Johnson here with us, the J.R. sport we show on CBS Sports Radio. When you think about the big game coming up, I know you're a tight end.

We got some big name tight ends that are going to be playing in this game with with Kelsey and Kittle. When you sit down and watch the game, Juwan, what do you look for specifically? What do you hone in on? Yeah, well, I always look at the front seven. I mean, that's kind of like how I change, like going the tight end. You always look at the front seven now. I always was used to looking at the quarterback receiver and looking at what they're doing. But the front seven is a little bit matters. And so I'm just looking at that, seeing how aggressive they're playing, see how physical, how much fun they're having.

And you really see how the game develops and see how they get worn down and see if they sustain the energy they had in the first quarter. So you always look at little things like that. And that's not what many people see. Many people look at the game to see the big thing in their eyes.

They don't know what to focus on. And that's what Shannon, she probably don't know what you look at. She's like, where the ball?

I'm going to go to the snack. BRB. Oh, yeah, man.

I think it's a yeah. I think it'd be really fun. I think it'd be interesting.

I'm so excited for Travis and enjoys to do that thing out there. Is there any team that that you both are kind of leaning towards? Can we get some predictions from both of you guys? I have no idea. Honestly, I haven't sat back and really thought about like, who do I think is going to win? I have no idea.

Definitely. I'm not the one to ask. She don't know.

She don't know. We'll see. It's going to be a crazy game. I know that. Who's playing?

The Chiefs and the 49ers. Plastered all over every building. I would hope by now you've seen it.

I would hope so. Juwan and Shannon Johnson are here with us. What else are you guys working on? You're at the Super Bowl.

You play in the league. You'll have a family. What are some of the things that you're currently into that you can share with everyone? We're out here today partnering up with Total Viper Horizon. We're really excited about it. They have their new commercial coming out. It's a prepaid plan, so it's really cool.

You can get obviously wireless or Internet, but the commercial is going to come out on Univision. So we're excited to promote that. And it's going to be super dope. This is going to be super dope because we're going to have a little Suavemente twist to it. It's going to be it's going to be really good.

I think it's going to be nice. I'm a big fan of Latin music. She's a Latina, so I like a little Latin music. What did you learn about Suavemente? I got the mood.

Suavemente, Suavemente. You're going to have to check out our TikTok to get a little twist on it from us. But they're also they're also doing a little thing with car washes here where the ride share drivers are going to get their car washes cleaned up. I know. So it's cool.

We're here for it. Well, I mean, out in Vegas, you pick up the wrong person at the wrong time a night. You might need the inside.

You might need to clean every morning. But you might you might get people. Where can people follow you guys as you all continue to grow in the league, online and everywhere? Fill us in.

Yeah. We're Joe and Shan on TikTok. Joe and Shan on TikTok. Honestly, we're it's Juwan on Instagram and Shannon Johnson on Instagram. And that's where you can find us. I mean, we're everywhere.
