The NFL has given a $200 Cheap
Vincent Valentine Jersey
,000 grant to a mentoring program that
supports children who have lost a parent in the military.

Tuesday’s Children, a nonprofit providing long-term support to communities
and people impacted by terrorism and traumatic loss, received the grant this
week. The NFL first worked with Tuesday’s Children following the terrorist
attacks of Sept. 11, 2001, providing grants to aid thousands of first responder
families.

For 15 years, Tuesday’s Children has provided youth mentoring programs to
children who lost a parent in those attacks. The new NFL grant will be used to
expand this program to include children ages 6 to 18 who have lost a parent in
the military. The program matches children with carefully recruited and screened
mentors who provide guidance, support and direction that help the children
succeed academically and socially.

”The NFL is enabling us to take our youth mentorship program to a new base of
children in need,” says Terry Sears, executive director of Tuesday’s Children.
”Losing a parent under any circumstance is traumatic and can often put a child
on a negative and destructive path; our mentorship program works to help
children overcome their loss and go on to live successful and fulfilling
lives.”

THE WRIGHT WAY: Minnesota Vikings wide receiver Jarius Wright has never been
the go-to target or the every-down player Cheap
Trey Flowers Jersey
, standing just 5-foot-10. But there’s always a
niche for the type of sure-handed hard worker he has been in six seasons with
the team.

After appearing in eight games last season and being thrown to a career-low
14 times, his spot on the roster for 2017 appeared tenuous, especially after the
Vikings took wide receiver Rodney Adams and Stacy Coley in the draft after
selecting Laquon Treadwell in the first round the year before.

But with Stefon Diggs and Michael Floyd out last week against Baltimore with
injuries, Wright came through with three catches for 54 yards. The first two
were third-down conversions in the first half, keeping drives alive that ended
in field goals. The third was a diving grab for 30 yards that set up another
field goal in the fourth quarter.

”I know how to prepare. I know how to handle things, and most of all I know
how to play football,” Wright said. ”So when it comes down to it, just staying
in it throughout the week, always paying attention Cheap
Tom Brady Jersey
, always knowing each and every position and what
to do there. When your number is called, because this is a league of injuries,
people get hurt all the time, the next guy has to step up. We have a great team
here. We have a lot of guys who can do that.”

TEAMING UP: The San Francisco 49ers have teamed with several major law
enforcement unions around the country to try to ban ”bump stocks” and other
mechanisms that convert semi-automatic weapons into automatic weapons.

The 49ers pledged $500,000 to the campaign called the ”Pledge for a More
Understanding and Safer America.” The pledge calls for the banning of ”bump
stocks,” armor-piercing bullets and gun silencers; advocating for additional
mental health services; getting sports teams, law enforcement and other groups
together on public service announcements designed to improve police and
community relations; and improve dialogue around all these issues.

Niners CEO Jed York signed a pledge supporting these causes, along with
representatives from law enforcement unions from the Bay Area, Los
Angeles Cheap
Tedy Bruschi Jersey
, New York and other places around the
country.

SPECIAL CAMP: Chiefs speedster Tyreek Hill, one of the league’s most dynamic
wide receivers, slowed down long enough to bring some smiles to the faces of
about 50 unique prospects this week.

Hill joined teammates Albert Wilson, Marcus Kemp and Gehrig Dieter in holdimageing
a clinic for Special Olympians from Kansas and Missouri on Tuesday night. Each
participant received a personalized jersey that hung in the home locker room,
along with personalized name plates and other swag.

The wide receivers led the Olympians through a variety of football drills,
including throwing and catching, while Hill spent extra time working with the
participants on their touchdown celebrations.

There were also plenty of autographs and a post-fantasy camp pizza party.

SCOREBOARDING: Ask Washington coach Jay Gruden about Dallas vice president of
player personnel Will McClay, and he immediately remembers an Arena League
playoff game 11 years ago.

Gruden’s Orlando Predators rolled to a 45-28 road win over the heavily
favored Dallas Desperados, coached by McClay. The Desperados hadn’t scored fewer
than 46 points in the high-scoring arena style all season.

”One of my favorite games I ever coached was against the Dallas Desperados
when they were like 20-point favorites Cheap
Steve Grogan Jersey
,” Gruden said. ”We put an (expletive) whooping
on them. You can tell him I said that. Make sure you remind Will about that
game.”

Naturally, Gruden’s recollection led to the question of Arena League games
actually having point spreads. The league essentially disbanded a few years
later, then came back in various forms.

”Heck yeah,” he said. ”It was big-time back then, man. It was a heck of a
league back then.”

McClay joined the Cowboys as a scout after the Desperados folded and has
risen to the No. 3 personnel man behind owner and general manager Jerry Jones
and son Stephen Jones.
