The safety joins numerous NFL personalities. Earlier Dallas Cowboys defensive end DeMarcus Lawrence joined up with The HotBoyz to help local businesses stay afloat. As per Dallas News, some rewards include a meet and greet with the singers and an NFL fan’s dream of free tickets to a Cowboys game at the AT&T Stadium. The latter may take a while to come to fruition. This is because it seems likely that sports will be played behind closed doors. 

In addition, Pittsburgh Steelers linebacker TJ Watt, offensive lineman Zach Banner too, has made contributions. However, these were just when the pandemic was setting in. For the sake of millions who have been given the pink slip due to the pandemic and who have reached the end of their rope in taking care of themselves, fans hope that such initiatives like the one by Adrian Amos Jr are not one-offs. 

It is the fans who make the players into the stars they are. Hence seeing the stars support those same fans will endear them to the faithful even more. What do you make of Adrian Amos Jr’s noble initiative?
