Titans’ Malcolm Butler donates to coronavirus relief in two states
In hopes of combating the coronavirus pandemic, Tennessee Titans cornerback Malcolm Butler will be stepping up to aid those affected.
According to the team’s website, Butler will be making a donation to Meharry Medical College to purchase supplies for healthcare workers and first responders, and will also be providing them meals. In addition, Butler will represent the Titans by funding meals for 600 seniors in his hometown of Vicksburg, Mississippi.
“I feel like it is very important, and each individual has a role in this situation,” Butler said. “Just like Miss Amy (Adams Strunk), Jon Robinson, and Mike Vrabel, we all have a job to do. So I think it’s a good idea for me to do my role. All the health care workers out there, first responders, they are putting themselves on the line for all of us.
“We are on the sideline now, and they are in the game. So, we should be there to support those people and do everything we can. Every hand helps.”
Other members of the Titans organization have also donated items and money to help Nashville citizens during the pandemic.
Since the 2020 NFL season doesn’t start until September, the NFL hasn’t made a decision to postpone games. However, it’s possible some preseason games involving the Titans may be canceled since they start in August. This year’s NFL Draft is set to happen, however, there will be no public events. Nevertheless, OTAs have been canceled and later offseason activities may be canceled also due to the coronavirus, which would affect the entire NFL.
