Current & Former NFL Players to Participate in NFL Finance Camp

Twenty current and former NFL players – including Super Bowl XLVIII Champion Seahawks defensive end Cliff Avriland two time Pro Bowler, 49ers tight end Vernon DAVIS – will take part in the inaugural NFL Finance Camp March 17-20, 2015, at the University of Miami School of Business Administration.

The program offers participants an opportunity to get an in-depth understanding of the people, investments and forces in the financial world that will dictate how well they can leverage their earnings into long-term financial security. Over the course of four days, the participants will receive instruction from University of Miami School of Business Administration professors, retired All-Pro defensive end Patrick Kerney, who now serves as the NFL Vice President of Player Benefits, and representatives from the Investools® from TD Ameritrade Holding Corp.

"The NFL offers the opportunity for many of its players to translate a relatively short career into a lifetime of freedom and opportunity," said Kerney. "The NFL Finance Camp will provide the type of unbiased information to help participants understand the long-term impact of current decisions, properly evaluate their current situation and capitalize on ways to optimize their financial futures."

NFL Player Engagement offers current and former players 8 training programs for post-NFL careers. The NFL Finance Camp will also include players' wives and significant others, as well as KALEB THORNHILL, the Dolphins' Director of Player Engagement.
