It is obvious he is being used for political purposes.

And no one has claimed Trump cares, just that it's unbelievable the President of the United States tweeted specifically about a former player.

I'd agree it's crazy that he did, but it's not because he's particularly concerned about Edwin Jackson, it's just ammunition for him.

Ammunition or confirmation of his and about half the country's beliefs? He was a NFL player and the story was all over the media of course if he was a plumber nobody would have known about it. The knee jerk cynicism of every thing he does and says is equally disgusting. Before becoming Pres he has had a long track record of charity and service now he is Satan...go figure.

Oh come on. 37K people die every year in car accidents and he picked this one to Tweet about? Has he tweeted about any of the others? There is an odds-on chance they happen in DC or elsewhere that he's heard about. You know, as well as everyone else, it was being used to rile the base. (As he sat in Mar-A-Lago, on our dime, at his hypocritical pay to play Super Bowl Party)

RIP Poundcake

Nicknamed Poundcake because of this:

http://www.espn.com/blog/arizona-cardina...pound-cake

Being an Atlanta native, Arizona Cardinals inside linebacker Edwin Jackson knows a little Southern hospitality can go a long way.

So, he knew what might help him when he missed a flight to Arizona for a pre-draft workout with the Cardinals: Pound cake, of course.

Here’s the story: He was supposed to take a weekend flight to Phoenix from Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta Airport, notorious for being one of the busiest in the country. After missing his flight by just a few minutes because the inter-terminal tram took too long, Jackson did the only thing he could think of: He called his mom, Mary Ellen Powell Jackson. She calmed the former Georgia Southern star down and told him to call the Cardinals coaches. He did and the team booked him a new flight later in the day.

But panic set in as his Southern upbringing started to shine through.

"I can’t go empty-handed," he said was one of his first thoughts. "It’s disrespectful to show up late and not have anything."

So, Jackson’s mother made a fresh batch of her now-famous pound cake from scratch and brought it to the airport.

The Indianapolis Colts are doing their best to ensure Edwin Jackson is not forgotten.

Colts owner and CEO Jim Irsay announced Monday a $25,000 gift to establish the Edwin Jackson Memorial Scholarship, in honor of the Colts linebacker who was killed after being hit by a suspected drunken driver on Feb. 4. Irsay also sent condolences to the family of 54-year-old Jeffrey Monroe, the Uber driver who was also killed in the accident.

If anyone would like to make a donation in Edwin's honor: http://edwinjackson53.com/

His family is asking to donate to his foundation in lieu of flowers. The Edwin Jackson 53 foundation helps under-served children and non-scholarship athletes reach their potentials without having to financially struggle.
