Dignity After Football is the organization whose purpose is to help guide and resolve the problems found in the lack of benefits, disability claims, same years for vesting across the board (3), and pension of the NFL. Educating our youth and youth sports coaches on dangers of head injuries.



Currently, Congress and the government action agencies are requiring the NFL to comply with resolving the benefits and pensions program that has serious flaws in their process to support disabled and retired players.
