The entire NFL has come together to contribute towards the fight against the ongoing Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, with its clubs, owners, and players collectively donating a whopping $35 million USD. Those donated include Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady, New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees, Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson, Houston Texans pass rusher J.J. Watt, Washington Redskins running back Adrian Peterson, and Indianapolis Colts owner Jim Irsay.

“We have all been impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. Now more than ever, we need to unify to stay home and stay strong,” said NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell in a press release. “The NFL will continue to find ways to give our support so we can get through this time of uncertainty together.”

The total sum will be donated across 10 organizations, including the American Red Cross, Bob Woodruff Foundation, Boys & Girls Clubs of America, CDC Foundation, GENYOUth Foundation, Meals on Wheels America, Salvation Army, Team Rubicon, United Way and Wounded Warrior Project.

If you wish to donate or learn more about the initiative, you can head over to the NFL’s website.

Elsewhere in sports, ESPN has moved up the release date for the Michael Jordan and Chicago Bulls docu-series The Last Dance.
