“Tired of seeing football players portray this tough guy image or pretend he’s gangsta,” Bridgewater said. “You went to school, attended those classes, and some even got their college degree. Now you might have 1.5% of professional football players that’s on that but the remaining 98.5% are only ‘football tough.’

“So, don’t wait till you inherit this legal money from the league to decide you want to be tough or portray a ‘street image’ cause it’s kids that’s looking up to everything we do. Plus it’s someone sitting in a cell or posted in the hood who might’ve been just as hood as you that would advise you otherwise.”

Today, LeBron James took to Twitter to back up Teddy Bridgewater on his sentiment.

“T. Bridgewater! All FACTS,” James tweeted.
