"Being a former NFL player is a special thing. Only one-tenth of one percent of all football players make it to the NFL, so we are a special and unique fraternity,” said Nolan Harrison, NFLPA Former Player Services Senior Director. “We understand what it takes to make it to this level: the determination, discipline and sacrifice. We are like a band of brothers, whether we are active or former players, and that fraternity eternally links us together forever."
