CLEVELAND (CBS Cleveland) – Former Cleveland Brown wide receiver is sticking to his promise he made in 2007.

While with the Browns, Edwards promised 100 Cleveland high school students that he would pay for their college education if they maintained a grade point average of 2.5 or above, do 15 hours of community service yearly, and attend monthly workshops on a variety of topics. All 100 students did their part, and now, according to CBSSports.com, Edwards is paying for all of them to go to college. Each scholarship is estimated to be around $10,000 per person which brings the total amount to $1 million.

“As the 2nd most hated man in Cleve & a man of my word, today I will honor a promise made to 100 students in Cleveland years ago,” Edwards tweeted. “The last of my Advance 100 students will graduate from my program and head off to college on scholarships that I will provide them with. Guys, enjoy and embrace your new beginnings and remember your promise to me, to reach aback & help someone else along the way.”

Edwards was the third overall pick by the Browns in the 2005 NFL Draft. He played for the Browns between 2005 and 2009. He is currently a free agent.
