A snapshot of Derrick Morgan in Rwanda

As the NFL’s labor impasses brings out pettiness from both sides, several players went to Rwanda with Pros for Africa and the Starkey Hearing Foundation, which are delivering more than 22,000 hearing aids to people in Africa during a month-long charity mission.

Among were Titans defensive end Derrick Morgan, who’s one of the players featured in this piece from Steve Terrill.

Said Morgan:

"It's a good experience to get away from all that and help people. They have real problems over here. We are arguing over billions of dollars, but they have real issues and real suffering here."

Gerald McCoy’s “bop, bop, bop” exchange with a young boy to test out whether a hearing aid worked is a small piece of the story that really resonates.

"There's nothing better than the feeling of giving the gift of hearing," he said.

Applause to the players who participated in the trip.
