NFL awards $1 million in grants to players’ charities

The NFL announced Tuesday that it has awarded $1 million in grants to the charities of nearly 90 current and former players.

The league said that star quarterbacks Ben Roethlisberger, Drew Brees, 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.
