He explained that most players the fund helps are not irresponsible with the money.
“There are so many guys that built the National Football League that are out there that… fell on hard times financially,” he says. “It’s not about guys wasting money or guys living lifestyles beyond their means. Most of the time, we’re dealing with medical issues.”MORE NEWS: Upper St. Clair Family Starts Non-Profit Organization To Honor Son Who Died Of Kidney Disease
