Jay Glazer speaks out on charity 'Merging Vets & Players'

Jay Glazer is here...We see Jay every Sunday on the NFL on FOX.

He’s passionate about football, but what he's really passionate about is a charity he founded called ‘M.V.P.’ which stands for Merging Vets & Players.

The purpose of the charity is to connect former NFL players with combat veterans to help them persevere through the many challenges associated with their service to our country.

The program connects former NFL players with former combat veterans so they can return to "normal" life.

About Jay Glazer:

During the 2013 NFL season, Glazer landed the first exclusive interview with Miami Dolphins lineman, Richie Incognito, who was at the center of a bullying scandal involving teammate Jonathan Martin.  The Incognito interview was one that every sports and non-sports media outlet in the country sought to get.  Also in 2013, Glazer broke that Super Bowl XLVII MVP Joe Flacco agreed to a new multi-year deal to stay with the Baltimore Ravens and that perhaps the game’s greatest tight end of all time, Tony Gonzalez, would in fact return for a final season.

In 2010, Glazer broke that the Patriots were trading Randy Moss back to the Vikings and broke the news of the NFL changing rules due to concussions. In 2009, Glazer broke the news that the Vikings were signing Brett Favre.  In 2008, Glazer was the first to report that Plaxico Burress had shot himself in the leg at a nightclub, Tony Dungy’s decision to step down as the Colts head coach, the firing of Lions GM Matt Millen and an exclusive one-on-one interview with then Broncos QB Jay Cutler (when his own head coach and owner couldn’t get a hold of him) on his wanting out of Denver.  In 2007, Glazer acquired video surveillance tapes of a brawl at the Palms casino between Dolphins linebacker Joey Porter and Bengals lineman Levi Jones in March 2007.  Glazer reported Brett Favre’s initial decision to retire in March of 2008. Glazer also broke the news that Joe Gibbs was returning to the NFL to take over as coach of the Redskins in 2004 and that 10 NFL players were subpoenaed as part of the BALCO investigation while secretly tested by the league in 2003. 

Weeks later, it was Glazer who revealed the names of the four Oakland Raiders who tested positive for the controversial drug THG.  Glazer was also the first to report the disappearance and suspension of former Oakland Raiders center Barrett Robbins the day prior to Super Bowl XXXVII.
