Culpo, who has been with Berrios for over a year, also shared the avatar image and screenshot of his tweet to his Instagram Story, saying, “It’s 2022 when I can print my face on my latte better than that.”

Meanwhile, the real Berrios is gearing up for his fourth season with the Jets after signing a two-year, $12 million extension in March.
However, he had to prepare for the upcoming season without quarterback Zach Wilson last week, who underwent knee arthroscopy in Los Angeles on Tuesday.
The surgery was deemed a success, but it’s still unclear how long it will take the 23-year-old sophomore pro to recover.
