The NFL Players: Second Acts podcast, where former Pro Bowlers Charles “Peanut” Tillman and Roman Harper break bread with fellow NFL Legends.

Roman and “Peanut” engage in some real talk with Legends about their transitions from the game to finding their passion pursuits in other areas of life, and they manage to have some fun along the way.
