A total of 28 current and former NFL players, will take part in the second annual NFL Personal Finance Camp in Fort Lauderdale next week (April 4-7). Buffalo WR Greg Salas is one of the participants.

Salas, who will be battling to fill the void left behind by Chris Hogan this offseason, will be taking part in the four-day financial education program.

The program, developed jointly by NFL Player Engagement, the University of Miami School of Business Administration and TD Ameritrade1, offers participants an opportunity to get an in-depth understanding of the people, investments and forces in the financial world and equips them with the knowledge and tools to help them build generational wealth and maintain long-term financial security.

“Programs like the Personal Finance Camp provide our players and their families with the resources, skills and support to achieve success in all aspects of their lives. Financial stability is critical to that success,” said Charles Way, NFL vice president of Player Engagement. “The Personal Finance Camp offers players the education and means to better manage their money and start to build generational wealth to secure their financial futures.”

Program sessions will include “Building Generational Wealth,” “Funding an Uncertain Lifespan,” “Planning and Building Your Portfolio,” and “Examining Wills, Trusts, Estate Planning.” Throughout the week, participants also will have the opportunity to receive one-on-one financial planning assistance.

“We’ve designed the program specifically for past and current players to help them achieve long-term financial security,” said David Lecon, director of executive education at the University of Miami School of Business Administration. “It is wonderful to see so many NFL players making such crucial investment in their future.”

This is one of several career and professional development programs NFL Player Engagement offers to current and former players and their families. More than 40 players and their significant others took part in the inaugural Business Academy last month at the University of Michigan’s Ross School of Business.
