NY Jets star pays for 100 students to attend college

Pro athletes often talk about how important it is to give back to the community, but New York Jets wide receiver Braylon Edwards has turned his words into action.

Keeping a promise he made to high school students four years ago, Edwards has agreed to help 100 high school students through college if they met certain academic and community service requirements.

Edwards joins the AM team this morning to talk about his "Advance 100" education initiative, one of the biggest scholarship programs ever led by an athlete.
