The Pro Football Retired Players Association (PFRPA) is a champion for retired NFL players. Our efforts are focused on bettering the lives of those who gave so much to the game. After hanging up their cleats, life after football varies for every player. We strongly believe that each player, no matter what their position or how long they played, should receive some level of support. We're passionate about our members, and that's what drives us to tackle issues that matter to them.
As a result of the 2013 Dryer, et al.v. National Football League case, the decision was made to establish an organization to benefit all retired NFL players. In April 2016, PFRPA began its work to develop health, welfare and educational programs for retired NFL players. Through the Greater Good Fund, PFRPA's 501(c)(3) charitable foundation, we are able to provide and research high-quality programs, resources and services for retired NFL players.
