A WHOLE PIE!

Gave up his plane seat to a Vet today...shows what kind of person he is.He works hard for breast cancer awareness...always willing to be friendly and interact with our fanbase....always smiling it seems.Lost his mom recently and handled it like a man on his social media posts, very thankful and grateful to all.I know he will be gone next year and I hope he has a productive season.Regardless of the asinine contract Hurney gave him and how some dislike him for that reason...he is still a good guy, great with the fans and gives 100% on the field.Props to you Deangelo.

Spot on post.  Can't blame DeAngelo for signing the ludicrous contract Hurney put on the table in front of him.

That was nice of him, and I don't mean to downplay that act but I kind of wondered why he felt the need to post about it.

Maybe not in football math, but in the math of life, 1 DWill is worth 11 Josh Gordans.

All good deeds shouldn't have to be a secret. Heck, it made me feel a little better about the potential goodness of people knowing he made such a respectful gesture. Hopefully, his post will inspire others to do the same.

I did not read any post so take my comments with a grain of salt. He does not seem to be an attention hound so I would think it might be just to let people know "hey I did a good deed, so can you" type thing. I believe he is a genuine guy. People like him and TD are really are gems for this team.

I agree and on the football field the difference is even greater

 

 

11 Josh Gordan's = 0

 

 

 

 

he wont be playing this year

Unfortunately it appears the guy isn't really a Marine... wearing his cover indoors, medals displayed incorrectly, etc... read the comments in the FB post.

DeAngelo had no way of knowing, still a good deed!

He's either not quite with it completely or he likes  getting respect for something he didn't do.

He had to let people know. Otherwise this service member just thinks some black guy with giant thighs gave me his seat. Or maybe he saw a young man or woman willing to put down their life so he can play a game for millions of dollars.

Are there any military men on this forum that can confirm this?

It's tough to tell from the photo. I can see a Silver Star and he's an E-9. There aren't that many E-9's around and he's black so that really narrows down the list. I don't see why anyone would fake that of all ranks.

The only photo I see is poor quality but it appears to be an older guy in the uniform -   of retired age.  Maybe he dressed up for the 4th to go to a reunion or something - old vets rarely remember all the rules of where what medal goes - it was a bitch remembering when on active duty for me and I had few to display.
