Tony-dungy-announces
Tony Dungy is a man of god, one of the more forgiving men you’ll find in football, and one of the few people that will take a call from the embattled Aaron Hernandez. Dungy says he hasn’t reached out to Hernandez or his family, but told USA Today that he would be willing to answer the phone call, if Hernandez, who has pleaded not guilty, reached out and called. “My approach is guys who request the help, I’m glad to do it, but I have not at this point,” Dungy told USA TODAY Sports. “I find it’s the people who want help that respond best.” Dungy referred back to his mentoring of Michael Vick over five years ago. “In Michael’s situation, they called me,” Dungy said. “And it became very easy. That’s usually the best way, because people are receptive when they are looking for help as well.”
