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.”
