Josh Jacobs began the new year with a huge surprise for his father. The Sportster purchased a house for his dad, and his dad's reaction was epic.

Being an NFL player confers a lot of responsibilities on the individual; first, a credible football player must display shrewd dedication and passion for the sports. This enhances his performance on the pitch. 

Another interesting fact about the NFL is the payment that comes with delivery, which in turn offers some comfort to players.
