NFL rookies will gain an education on “The Business of Football: Rookie Edition” later this month at an event put on by the NFL Players Association.
The NFLPA is inviting all drafted rookies to Washington, D.C. June 28-29. The two-day event will focus on financial education and preparing players for their professional careers. The seminar will give players essential educational information on topics ranging from life skills and personal finance to security and post-football careers.
Last week the NFL announced that it was canceling its rookie symposium scheduled for June 26 in Canton, Ohio because of the uncertainty of the labor issues and related logistical challenges.
