Dear NFL Legend:
We hope that Sunday was a Happy Father’s Day for all.
That reminds us that the Pro Football Hall of Fame updated its list of father-son combinations that have played in the NFL, which now stands at 224. Included in this newsletter is a chart of the sons of NFL Legends who were recently drafted or have signed with NFL clubs as undrafted free agents.
Speaking of fathers, the NFL Player Engagement Department partnered with noted pediatrician Dr. Meg Meeker to provide resources for NFL dads through the NFL Fatherhood Initiative, which include a round-table interview with Mike Adams and Ben Watson as well as with NFL Legends LaVar Arrington and London Fletcher. The Fatherhood Initiative engages current and former NFL players on parenting and uses their stories to provide inspiration and tools for all men to be great fathers.
In addition to sharing her best practices for parenting, Dr. Meeker also gave 3 Tips for Fathers and Sons to share in happy and healthy relationships.
In addition to sharing her best practices for parenting, Dr. Meeker recently conducted a round-table interview with NFL Legends LaVar Arrington, London Fletcher and David Tyree to discuss their experiences with fatherhood.
Please remember that players in need of emergency financial assistance should call 1-800-NFL-GOAL to connect with the NFL Player Care Foundation (PCF). The PCF staff has assisted former players with short-term financial grants for issues ranging from family health problems to overdue mortgage payments.
We encourage you to visit NFLLegendsCommunity.com or our many social media platforms – Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn and Twitter – to connect with former teammates and for information on all of the programs, benefits and resources available to former players. We also ask that you send photos showing what you are up to today, events you attend with other Legends, or interesting activities you are participating in. Send your best shots toNFLLegends@NFL.com so we can share your stories on Instagram with other NFL Legends.
