Just Asking / Three questions for Troy Vincent

1. You do a lot of charity work. Why is being involved and portraying a positive image important to you?

I just want to be a part of my community. As a professional athlete, we have the opportunity to influence. It's a great platform to go back and share our experiences, share our resources where needed in our local communities. I want my children to know that it's not about us. It's not about what I do for a living. It's about empowering other people. When you empower other people, you empower yourself.

2. What is it like to be president of the NFL Players Association?

In truth, it's something I never thought about. But as time went on, I was voted into the role and it's an overwhelming honor. I've always been a player rep since my later days in Miami, and it was just that I wanted to be involved. I wanted to know my working rights.

3. If you were the NFL commissioner for a day, what is one thing you would change?

I would make sure there was parity. We have parity in the free agency market and on the field now. But there should be parity in how the organizations are run, from practice schedule to offseason work.
