How One Football Player Could Lead the Way
by Jimmy Mengel
Eugene Monroe may not be a household name…
While he is a millionaire, three-time Pro-Bowl football player, he isn’t exactly well known.
But here in Baltimore, he is known as one of the guys who keeps our $20 million-a-year quarterback Joe Flacco from being murdered by defensive ends.
He has also taken up the mantle of being the most outspoken advocate for medical marijuana in the NFL. And he’s putting his money where his mouth is. Monroe has donated $80,000 to Realm of Caring, an advocacy group that is working with the most prestigious medical school in the country: Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine.
