The veteran safety says it would be a “dream come true” to remain in Philly.
There were times, Rodney McLeod admits now, when he wasn’t sure “I had it in me” to recover from a torn ACL suffered in December 2020 in time to play during the 2021 Eagles season. The long hours of rehab that translated to mini-steps of recovery seemed like such a mountain to climb for McLeod, who had suffered the same injury in 2018 and also had come back from a rotator cuff injury a season later.
Rodney McLeod’s impactful work in the community was once again on center stage as the safety was named the recipient of the 2022 NFLPA Alan Page Community Award in Los Angeles, the site of Super Bowl LVI, on Wednesday.
The NFL Players Association announced Rodney McLeod as the recipient of the 2022 Alan Page Community Award at its annual Super Bowl press conference on Wednesday. In recognition, the NFLPA will donate $100,000 to McLeod’s Change Our Future foundation.
