NFL Grants One Million To Charities

NFL awards $1 million to players' charities

      NEW YORK (AP) – The NFL has awarded $1 million in grants to the
charities of nearly 90 current and former players.
      The league said Tuesday that star quarterbacks Peyton Manning,
Drew Brees, Ben Roethlisberger and Philip Rivers were among those
receiving up to $50,000 for their foundations.
      NFL Charities has given more than $17 million to player
foundations over two decades, and that didn't change with the
lockout this year.
      Other current and former players receiving grants include Nnamdi
Asomugha, Derrick Brooks, Cris Collinsworth, Doug Flutie, David
Garrard, Tony Gonzalez, Torry Holt, Jim Kelly, John Lynch, Anthony
Munoz, Chad Pennington, Junior Seau, LaDainian Tomlinson, Mike
Utley, Troy Vincent, Kurt Warner and Steve Young.
