NFL players don't have a long time to be home, but this 7 week span between minicamp and training camp is important for players to stay in shape on their own.
But it's also an opportunity, to give back to the communities that made them who they are.
Out at King's Academy in West Palm Beach Saturday, hundreds of boys and young men were learning from Belle Glade native Cre'Von LeBlanc. The bears cornerback was hosting his inaugural "Strap 4 It" camp - that's LeBlanc's saying for working hard to earn what you get on the field and off.
Some of his NFL and FAU friends were there to help out, providing an incredible opportunity for the future football stars.
Among the pro players helping out at LeBlanc's camp was Lake Worth native Tre Mason. The former St. Louis Rams running back has been laying low after two arrests, and not showing up to NFL camp last season. Mason would not speak to media Saturday, but he did help out and looked in good shape. One of his Auburn teammates has told TMZ that Mason is working towards an NFL comeback.
