During the offseason, the NFL blogosphere is littered with stories of athletes misbehaving and finding themselves in trouble with the law. Far too often players are arrested in their down time, so we don’t get to hear the good stories along the line. However, Cincinnati Bengals tight end Jermaine Gresham did a good deed that deserves to be noticed.
On Twitter, Gresham revealed that he was bailed out of a $55 parking ticket after a homeless man put fifty cents in a parking meter to help Gresham avoid getting the fine. As a sign of appreciation and respect, Gresham gave the man some money in return.
It’s great to see guys step up and help those less fortunate. It is just a shame that more NFL players do not go above and beyond to help those who can’t always help themselves. Hats off to Gresham, this was a very honorable deed.
