Raiders tight end to go on date with USA Olympic gold medal gymnast Aly Raisman

New, comments

Some of you may know this, but Raiders reserve long snapper Andrew East is married to former Olympic gymnast Shawn Johnson. These days Johnson is an Olympic trainer and helped the 2016 Olympic team to a gold medal at the Rio Olympics last week.

Johnson-East has also been helping to set Aly Raisman -- member of that gold medal winning team -- with a date. Johnson-East's husband Andrew knows a few athletes since joining the Raiders this offseason and found tight end Colton Underwood was interested in going on that date.

So, Underwood made a short video to ask her on a date.

"Aly, what's up, it's Colton Underwood, tight end for the Oakland Raiders. Just wanted to congratulate you on all your success in the competitions and representing the USA over there. I know I've been following along, my roommate, my teammates, everybody is super proud of you. If you're ever in San Jose and want to go on a double date with me and Andrew and Shawn, let me know."

Aly responded positively to the short video, calling Underwood "very cute" and agreeing to a date "Yeah, I would go on a date with him."

Raisman is a two-time Olympian. While being part of Gold medal teams in both Rio this year and London in 2012, she took home the Gold in the individual floor exercise in London along with the Bronze on balance beam. In Rio she took home Silver in floor exercise, Silver in the all-around.
