Welcome to your Thursday edition of The Morning After Huddle where we report on the “X’s”, the “O’s” and everything in between. The Buffalo Bills have decided to “choose love” (as their new cause shirts say) and have made good on their promise to help the Buffalo community.
Here’s what you need to know:
- The Buffalo Bills will partner with the NFL Foundation to donate $400,000 to local response efforts within the city of Buffalo. Clotilde Perez-Bode Dedecker, president and CEO of the Community Foundation for Greater Buffalo, called the donation a way to “work together as a community to address immediate needs, long-term rebuilding and systemic issues that continue to marginalize communities of color.”
- The Minnesota Vikings are hosting a coaching summit this week to give minority coaches, who otherwise might not have the opportunity, exposure to the NFL. The 3 day event includes presentations, group activities, and mock interviews. Assistant Head Coach Mike Pettine says he was inspired by the NFL’s lack of diversity in coordinator and head coaching positions.
- James Bradberry tops your Key Signings Roundup today. The former Giants CB signed a 1-year, $10M deal with the Philadelphia Eagles. The Eagles have been looking to fill a spot at CB since Steven Nelson signed with the Texans last month.
