DeAngelo Williams is friggin awesome, but you already knew that. He's one of the nicest guys in the league and continued that trend on Monday by posting a photo to his Facebook account of a Marine about to board his flight. D-Will planned to surprise the man with a simple offer: His seat in business class.
Now I'm no member of the military, nor have I ever been -- but this is a really great thing to see him do, regardless of the circumstance. Some have questioned whether this man is really a Marine, pointing to his badges and covers being worn indoors, but even if it's not then we can file this one away as "it's the thought that counts."
This has been a banner few days for Panthers helping people. It's always great to see the players give back to others given the considerable gifts they've been given. I don't care if it's a real situation or not, well played.
