Prologue: This article is a salute to William Joseph, a defensive tackle for the Oakland Raiders, and to other NFL players of Haitian descent.

The recent earthquake has caused a degree of havoc in the lives of those who are related to families in Haiti. Events like these touch the hearts of many, and some people do their best to offer help to those in need.

Here is a list of professional football players with Haitian heritage. No doubt they have organized themselves to help those in Haiti. The humanitarian spirit is high with many NFL players, and it is to be honored.

We salute the NFL players of Haitian descent. We ask that all of those who know these great men would ask these NFL players in what way can we help their friends and families who are presently struggling with the circumstances in Haiti.

We offer our prayers and concern for all who have suffered losses as a result of the natural disaster in Haiti.
