Some of us are almost as big a fan of those names on the backs of jerseys as we are the team itself. How can you not cheer on an Eric Berry, who battled cancer only to return to the field the following season? What about the story of Shaquem Griffin, who terrorizes backfields with only one hand, lost following a birth defect? Perhaps you've heard the story of Demario Davis, who turned a potential fine of $7,000 for a "Man of God" headband into a fundraising opportunity for a Mississippi hospital. These are the players behind the Kansas City Chiefs, the Seattle Seahawks and the New Orleans Saints ... and there are dozens of others out there.
