In the shadow of the 10th anniversary of the September 11th attacks, nearly a dozen NFL players decided they wanted to do something on their first off day of the regular season to honor everyday heroes. Members of the Atlanta Falcons, including star running back Michael Turner and wide receiver Eric Weems, made a surprise visit to 3 metro Atlanta fire stations. The players not only thanked the firefighters for their service and sacrifice but they gave them an autographed game ball and tickets to this weekend’s hot match up between the Falcons and the Philadelphia Eagles, led by former Falcon QB Mike Vick. Not a bad way for these guys to start the work week!
Chicks in the Huddle’s cameras were rolling as players hung out, served pizza and even got into a little mischief, as you’ll see in the video below.
