It has been an awful week and a half for the NFL with many of its big names becoming the subject of some very serious and negative issues.

From Ex Baltimore Ravens Ray Rice domestic violence video to Minnesota Vikings Adrian Peterson claims of child abuse.

Carolina Panthers Greg Hardy has been placed on the Commissioners exempt list due to a separate domestic violence case and of course, all of the negative attention being paid to the NFL Commissioner himself have all thrown the league in disarray.

So with so many of the leagues big names proving to have personal lives in disarray, it all follows a summer where one players off-field antics were heavily scrutinized.

Cleveland Browns rookie Quarterback Johnny Manziel did nothing but create headlines over the summer ever since being drafted in the first round of this years draft.

With so many players who have been exposed for the controversial characters in recent days, there are is very little to smile about in the NFL.

But there is always the Seattle Seahawks Quarterback Russell Wilson.

A Champions life

Wilson earned many plaudits when he led the Seahawks to their first ever Super Bowl victory last season and is currently leading them as a team who look good to repeat this year.

But for those of you who use social media service Instagram, you will know that the Seahawks shot caller isn't all the stern faced player who shows up on a Sunday.

In fact his page is filled with many different pictures which show that really, not all NFL players are violent bad guys.

Wilson's Instagram profile currently has the last 10 pictures which give the true reflection of a kind, decent and charitable man.

There are several pictures taken at Seattle Children's hospital where he is visiting ill children at their hospital bed, to some family pictures from years ago with him and his sister.

The one picture which has Wilson in the blue and green of the Seahawks shows him shaking hands with coach Pete Carroll and a caption that reads "happy 23rd birthday Coach Carroll".

So it seems that not all hope is lost in the NFL and there are still some players who will always be there for there fans and do what they can to make some dreams come true.
