Through the NFL’s continuous
efforts to assist players in successful transition into their post-playing
careers, the most recent group of retired players and their significant others
have been invited to the league office for a two-day introduction to the
Legends Community and the resources available to them.
Eighteen of the most
recent NFL Legends will be hosted at the league office July 13-14 to strengthen
their connections with each other, their teams and the NFL.
Launched in July 2013, the
Legends Community provides unique opportunities and resources for Legends to
engage year-round and aims to celebrate, embrace and unite former players and
their families. To date, more than 5,700 former players have registered for the
“The Legends Community provides
former players ongoing resources, guidance and support in transitioning from
their playing experience to their new normal,” said Executive Vice President of
Football Operations TROY VINCENT. “This is an extensive orientation about the
resources available to all players in continuing their on-field success in
their post-playing days.”
During the event, Legends
will hear from NFL league and team executives, as well as former players
currently serving as Legends Community Ambassadors. Additionally, they will participate
in networking opportunities and learn about the initiatives and programs
specifically designed for them.
Topics include career
development and educational opportunities, discussions regarding benefits and
transition assistance, information on how to stay engaged with teams, and tips
for building their brand.
