EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) — Davion Only, the 15-year-old Florida foster boy who made headlines with his heartfelt adoption plea in October, was a guest of Jets wide receiver David Nelson at New York's game against the Cleveland Browns.

Only, wearing a green Jets jersey with Nelson's No. 86, was on the sideline before the game Sunday at MetLife Stadium with a friend and guardian during the players' warmups. Nelson also posed for pictures with Only, who was hosted this weekend by Nelson and his charity organization i'mME.

Nelson, who formed i'mMe with his two brothers to aid orphaned children last January, invited Only to New York for "a crash course in Christmastime in the city" after hearing about how the boy stood in front of a church congregation and begged for a family to love him.
