The 17th NFL Rookie Symposium was like summer school for rookies...but way more fun!

The NFL's newest players learned the sport's legacy and tradition of character and leadership, as well as social and professional responsibility.

Guest speakers included current and former players who have experienced a wide-range of successes and challenges in their football careers and personal lives.

2014 Pro Football Hall of Fame inductee Aeneas Williams gave a history session for the rookies at the Pro Football Hall of Fame.

This event is another sign that the 2014 NFL season is coming soon. Yeah!
