SALT LAKE CITY – Former BYU linebacker and current NFL free agent Kyle Van Noy was joined by Cosmo at a golf course on Tuesday.

The BYU mascot landed two backflips while attempting to get Van Noy to attempt one of his own.

He was apprehensive at first, but Cosmo’s success convinced him to give it a go.

Van Noy’s attempt ended up being more of a somersault, but Cosmo was proud nonetheless.

In his first year with the Los Angeles Chargers in 2022, Van Noy put together a productive season.

He posted 46 tackles (30 solo tackles), five sacks, a forced fumble, and two fumble recoveries.

Van Noy has played for four teams in his NFL career. New England, Detroit, Miami, and Los Angeles have all been home to the Nevada native.

Van Noy will be entering his 11th season in 2023, likely on a new team. In a social post, Van Noy announced that his time with the Chargers is all but over as he looks to the other 31 teams.
