Indianapolis Colts linebacker Darius Leonard was one of the NFL's most pleasant surprises this season, and over the weekend, he provided a different type of surprise, hooking his mom up with a new Mercedes-Benz.

And her reaction was priceless:

The rookie linebacker was a force of nature in 2018, registering 163 tackles, seven sacks, four forced fumbles, two fumble recoveries and two interceptions. He was named the Associated Press Defensive Rookie of the Year and was a First-Team All-Pro.

While he was surprisingly a Pro Bowl omission, he was one of the key factors in the Colts' return to the postseason this past season.

Leonard could do little wrong this past season. So far, he's killing it in the offseason, too. Just ask his mom.
