Jay Ajayi Twitter emoji released - first NFL player with specific emoji

NFL: Miami Dolphins-Training Camp Steve Mitchell-USA TODAY Sports

The Miami Dolphins will be facing the New Orleans Saints on Sunday in a Week 4 contest in London. This will mark the fourth time the South Florida franchise will play in the United Kingdom since the league started the annual regular season meetings across the pond in 2007 - including the Dolphins playing in that first game. It will also mark the first time London native and Dolphins running back Jay Ajayi will be playing in front of his hometown crowd.

Ajayi has been busy hyping the game. He has spent time in London, and throughout the United Kingdom, this year to get the public ready for the Dolphins and Saints. And, Ajayi became the first player in the NFL to get a Twitter emoji designed for him.

The Dolphins and Saints will kickoff Sunday morning at 9:30 am ET. Will the Jay Train be able to get running early in the game? His emoji will, hopefully, be flooding Twitter shortly after kickoff.
