Alumni Associations


The NFL Players Association Retired was established in the 1950’s. The association has been investing in retired players; players who did not meet the minimum requirements, and players who are still active within the National Football League.

We, the Buffalo Bills Alumni - Buffalo Chapter, would like to let you, our fans who have supported us for so long, know that we play a big part in today's National Football League Players Association. Over the past sixty years, the NFLPA Retired Players have realized many gains.
