In these days of money-hungry, overpaid, underachieving, lying, cheating, steroid-using, lawbreaking, selfish athletes, David Wilson of the New York Giants is a breath of fresh air ["Wilson walks away," Sports, Aug. 5].

His choice to save his health and give up his football career makes him a role model for all of us. He has wisdom on what's important in life. Hopefully he will find a new role in the NFL.
