Bennett: ‘All the Guys Want to Do Is Play Football’

June 28th, 2011

While serving as Chairman of the NFLPA’s Board of Former Players, Cornelius Bennett has taken on an important leadership role to help former NFL players.

“That’s what I get joy from now,” Bennett told The Birmingham News in a recent interview. “I’m helping others, and I can honestly say I enjoy doing what I’m doing now more than when I was a player, because then it was only about me.”

As Bennett lobbies to help former players secure better benefits, he stresses that active players all want to play football—just as he did when he entered the league as a legend from the University of Alabama.

    I truly feel its time all partys involved need to step up to plate and get this taken care of.This sport effects thousands of people other than the players and owners and the people who have supported you for years and spent a great deal of money to do so. Do you really think this is a good time in the economic position were in to play with fire no so every needs to grow up and get it done.
