Russell, the Left Tackle of the Carolina Panthers, received a copy of Paul’s book “End the Fed” from his wife on August 8, 2020.
He tweeted, “They say the person you marry determines 80% of your happiness. This one knows me too well and is sending over another new training camp read.”

Okung has recently expressed his potential desire to retire from the NFL due to Wuhan virus concerns, Should he retire. Okung may have a bright future as a skeptic of central banking and an advocate for alternative currencies.
