Earl Thomas donates to Marlon Humphrey’s mother’s track team

NFL: Baltimore Ravens-Minicamp Evan Habeeb-USA TODAY Sports

Back in March, free agent addition Earl Thomas stated in a press conference that he would don the jersey number 29 after working it out with cornerback Marlon Humphrey.

In the presser, Thomas mentions he may donate money to Barbara Humphrey’s summer track team, Marlon’s mother.

Initially, Humphrey requested money in exchange for the number, but rescinded, stating that’s not who he is.

Now, this chapter and story has a feel-good ending, with a thank you video posted by the third-year cornerback, filled with young athletes going through drills and thanking Earl for his charity.

“A Special Thank You To Earl Thomas Of The Baltimore Ravens For His Generous Donation To Speed City Summer Track Club!”

From beginning to end, this has been an interesting side-story of this offseason.

The Ravens added a big-time addition to the roster. He and Marlon teased one another on Twitter, until ultimately figuring out what works best for both of them. Now, Humphrey will sport his father’s NFL jersey number on the gridiron and Barbara’s track team received a charitable donation.
