CORAL GABLES, Fla. --- During the six week NFL summer break, Jaguars safety Sergio Brown is in the classroom getting his MBA.
"I want to be able to know how to use my money wisely,"Brown said.
The Chicago native said his parents made education a priority when he was growing up.
A few years ago Sports Illustrated published an article that said 78 percent of NFL athletes go bankrupt or have financial issues within two years of walking away from the game. Brown in this program are taking the proper steps to not be a part of that statistic.
Brown jokingly mentioned, "I just can't help but to think about how I'm going to end up in the 28% of the people who is not bankrupt."
