NFL Player Engagement

A look at the programs and services NFL Player Engagement provides to assist every player before, during and after his football career.

NFL Player Engagement (PE) takes a four-pillar approach to supporting NFL players and their families during their NFL career and beyond: Continuing Education, Financial Literacy, Professional Development, and Personal Development.

Through peer-to-peer engagement and direct outreach, PE’s innovative programs and services assist players and provide them with the resources necessary to make the most of their lives on the field and away from the game.

From aiding players with building their brands and managing their finances, to supporting their physical, mental and financial well-being, the goal of the Player Engagement department is to provide the best community of care to serve, equip, empower, and support the player and his entire ecosystem during and after his playing days.

“We are committed to setting up players and their families for success starting from the day they enter the league, to long after their playing days are over,” says Troy Vincent, NFL Executive Vice President of Football Operations. “Whether a player wants to go back to school, start a new business, or learn about financial planning, the NFL family and Player Engagement are here to support.”

NFL Player Engagement offers:

  • Continuing Education: Providing players and Legends with the tools to reach their educational goals. In partnership with colleges and universities across the country, the Continuing Education Program offers individualized education plans for degree completion with undergraduate, graduate or certification programs.
  • Financial Literacy: Providing engaging and unbiased education through programs and seminars that seek to improve the financial decision-making ability of players.
