Najee Harris said his teammates, particularly Cam Heyward, call him The Grinch.
“They say I don’t have no spirit. (Cam) bought me a Christmas tree. I’m not trying to be the Grinch, but just so be it.”

“He said, ‘do you have any lights on at your house or a Christmas tree?” Najee explained. “He said, ‘I’ll buy you a Christmas tree, you gotta put it up, post it, and send me a picture.'”
Similar to spending Thanksgiving with Coach Tomlin, Heyward also made it a requirement that Najee sends a picture to Coach T, as well.
