VIDEO: NFL Players Doing Their Part By Helping Clean Up Local Stores in Tampa Following Looting
The world has gone through some tough times the last few months. First dealing with the fallout of a global pandemic, things have gotten more dangerous and violent in the recent days. With nationwide protests going on in most major American cities over policy brutality and racial injustice.
As anger increases throughout the country, destruction and looting is what many of the protests have turned into, especially in the late hours of the night.
With all this pain and destruction, seemingly everywhere we look, in so many forms, it's refreshing to see some NFL players helping out the local communities and business owners that have been hurt by these destructive acts.
Amid all of this, Cincinnati Bengals WR Auden Tate, Buffalo Bills WR Ray-Ray McCloud and Indianapolis Colts CB Isaiah Rodgers all stepped up to lend a hand in cleaning up the mess left by the looters in Tampa Bay, Florida. And as you can see in the video below, those looters destroyed much of what appears to be a strip mall or shopping center.
Rodgers and McCloud are both Tampa natives by birth, while Tate played his high school football at Paul R. Wharton.
It's easy for someone of wealth and fame to shy away and hide during times like these, but that's not what these three players did. They came out to help the communities, putting their own time aside, their own well-being, to try and help resolve the situation, or at least provide a little relief for those negatively effected by the destruction.
It would be incredible to see more payers lend a helping hand like this, regardless of the location.
But as it goes with solving any issue, every little bit counts, and these guys are definitely making their little bit count.
