Chiefs linebacker Andy Studebaker wouldn’t discuss what his teammates do with their spare time, but speaking generally, he said that today’s NFL player has to constantly be mindful that his decisions and involvements will be scrutinized — regardless of his intentions.
“The things that you do are in the public light,” Studebaker said. “If it’s a club or an elementary school that you’re speaking at or a charity event, everything you’re doing is going to be publicized.
“You have to realize that. It’s the reality that we live in with the technology that we live in today. That knowledge and that awareness of what’s going on and how things can be perceived should shape how you do your business. … That’s just the reality of an NFL player in today’s society. You just have to be careful about the things you get involved with.”
