Geno Atkins of the Cincinnati Bengals hasn’t seen his team’s season go as planned, but that hasn’t stopped him from celebrating the holiday season.
The six-time Pro Bowl defensive tackle and his wife, Kristen, have partnered with Chassis, a men’s skincare brand, to help families in need in the Cincinnati area.
The Atkinses participated in the Week of Giving, which started with the couple calling several individuals and families and sending them gift cards.
Then, the Atkinses helped with the adoption funds for one family. He also gave a helping hand to a single mother at Christmastime.
The Atkins continued their charitable acts throughout the week. ESPN’s Adam Schefter provided additional context as to what else the couple is doing.
Atkins’ acts have not gone unnoticed as numerous fans took to social media to commend Geno and Kristen for being great examples for others.
Atkins has always been one of the Bengals’ best players, but now people are seeing how great he is off the field as well.
Since entering the league in 2010, Atkins leads all defensive tackles in sacks over that span and has been named first-team All-Pro twice.
