Bob Grant is a former American football linebacker in the National Football League for the Baltimore Colts and the Washington Redskins. He played college football at Wake Forest University and was drafted in the second round of the 1968 NFL Draft.
Bob was one of the first African-Americans to play football for Wake Forest University. He went on to play in the NFL, winning a Super Bowl ring in 1971. His formation this year of the Retired NFL Players Congress marks a new pursuit for Grant, who says the organization is about moving away from conflicts. SportsBusiness Journal asked Grant about the new group’s purpose and how it is distinct from other retiree groups.
