In an offseason full of NFL players getting into legal trouble, we finally get to hear some good news. Greg Toler, cornerback for the Arizona Cardinals, decided to take some local children from Gilbert, Arizona to the circus recently.

It's this type of act that the rest of the NFL should model their behavior after.

Because of Toler, 100 children had their lives changed for at least one day. He told the kids from The Boys and Girls Club that if they kept their grades up and stayed disciplined, he would take them all to the circus. As you can see, he kept up his end of the bargain.

The fact that Toler not only has the presence of mind to do this, but also wants to do it is what makes it all so impressive. Yes, he is a professional athlete, but he does not let it get to his head. He remains humble despite all of his accomplishments. It would be nice if all pro athletes took a page out of his book.

At the circus, all of the kids wore shirts that said Em"BRACE" due to Toler's ACL injury and the brace that he will subsequently be forced to wear on the field this season. But if karma pans out the way it always seems to do, I am sure Toler will do just fine in 2012. Keep up the good work.
