New York Jets: Foundation
The New York Jets wide receiver tweeted Thursday that "as the 2nd most hated man in Clev & a man of my word," he was honoring his commitment to pay for the students' college tuitions if they reached certain academic goals.
Edwards is giving about $1 million to the students from the ADVANCE 100 program, established by the receiver's foundation while he was playing in Cleveland.
"Guys, enjoy and embrace your new beginnings," Edwards tweeted, "and remember your promise to me, to reach back & help someone else along the way."
Edwards is scheduled to be a free agent, but says he wants to stay with the Jets.
