Which NFL players are on a roll?
The NFL has announced that all 25 players on its active rosters have a positive attitude.
Players from all 25 teams have been given the “A+” honor for having a positive outlook, as well as a “B” for being a positive influence.
This is the second consecutive year that the NFL has rewarded players with the honor.
Players have been rewarded with an additional $1,000 in their base salary, which can be used towards their team’s mandatory spending on player-related expenses.
It’s the first time since the 2010 season that all players have received an additional dollar in their total salary.
In all, 27 players have been awarded the “B+” award for positive attitude in 2015.
And the players who have received the “C+” designation have collectively contributed $12,734,838 to the league’s coffers.
“As a player, it’s been great to see players take a positive approach and take pride in their work,” said San Francisco 49ers cornerback Tramaine Brock, who was the second-highest-paid player in the NFL this season.
“As a coach, it has been fun to watch players get in the groove and keep the ball in play, and the players on our team have done a great job in the process.”
Players who have had positive impact on the NFL’s community include linebacker Von Miller, wide receiver Anquan Boldin, quarterback Colin Kaepernick, tight end Vernon Davis, linebacker Michael Bennett, running back C.J. Anderson and linebacker Zach Brown.
The award is given to players who are active on all 25 active rosters, but only the players listed on the team’s depth chart are eligible to receive it.
