Matt Birk is this week's guest author for Peter King's Monday Morning Quarterback at SI.com and I applaud him for what he wrote about honoring the previous generations of football players.
For all of us who love the NFL, we should somehow demand that more is done for these players who paved the way, and did so for barely any money. Now, many of them are hurting financially as their bodies are breaking down. The owners are billionaires and today's players are millionaires and they should find ways to provide for those of yesteryear. It's just the right thing to do.
