DeAngelo Williams offers his business class seat to a Marine

This is an all-around "good guy" move.

Carolina Panthers running back DeAngelo Williams has his heart in the right place. Three days after the Fourth of July he noticed a Marine preparing to board his plane and planned to swap seats with the veteran, giving up his place in business class.

It should be noted that many of the comments on the Facebook post suggest the man is not actually a Marine due to the positioning of his badges and uniform, but ultimately that's not important. On a week plagued by off-field issues in the sports world it's nice to see a football player trying to do what he thinks is right -- regardless of whether the man is actually a Marine or not.
