Eagles defensive end Chris Long is donating his entire salary from the 2017 season to initiatives aimed at boosting educational equality.
Long’s foundation is working with four organizations based in St. Louis, Boston and Philadelphia — the three communities in which Long has played in the NFL. The city that raises the most money during the season has an additional $50,000 donation coming its way.
As NFL owners and players address the controversy around protests during the national anthem and discuss other ways to engage in social activism, Long is providing an excellent example of how to move forward in a positive, productive and unifying manner.
