The NFL gave $1 million in grants to charities belonging to nearly 90 current and former NFL players.

The league said Tuesday that star quarterbacks Peyton Manning, Drew Brees, Ben Roethlisberger and Philip Rivers were among those receiving up to $50,000 for their foundations.

NFL Charities has given more than $17 million to player foundations over two decades, and that didn’t change with the lockout this year.

Other current and former players receiving grants include Nnamdi Asomugha, Derrick Brooks, Cris Collinsworth, Doug Flutie, David Garrard, Tony Gonzalez, Torry Holt, Jim Kelly, John Lynch, Anthony Munoz, Chad Pennington, Junior Seau, LaDainian Tomlinson, Mike Utley, Troy Vincent, Kurt Warner and Steve Young.
