LeBron James is inspiring more than just kids with his school in Akron.

Cleveland Browns cornerback T.J. Carrie said Wednesday that the NBA star has motivated him and other athletes to be more active in their communities. "Are we doing enough?" Carrie asked.

Earlier this week Cordrea Tankersley Jersey , James, who recently left the Cleveland Cavaliers and signed with the Los Angeles Lakers, opened the I Promise School, a year-round facility designed for at-risk kids and their families, in his hometown.

The school is funded by a partnership between Akron City Schools and the LeBron James Family foundation. Along with a curriculum that caters to a student's needs Derek Watt Jersey , the school has a food pantry and provides transportation and other educational resources to some of the city's most needy residents. It currently serves only third- and fourth-grade students, but the school plans expand to grades 1-8 by 2020.

Carrie, who signed with the Browns as a free agent in March after four seasons with Oakland, said James' efforts lead him to want to do more. Two years ago, the 28-year-old launched his own youth foundation.

"I'm talking to my team now Lawrence Taylor Jersey ," he said. "OK, LeBron's doing this, we're not on his level, but the level that we're on, what can we do to achieve and make a huge difference within the community out here?"

Carrie said some of his teammates have discussed ways in which they can help others.

Carrie also has Ohio connections. The California native played at Ohio University before being drafted by the Raiders in 2014.

Although James is leaving after his second stint with the Cavaliers Jacquizz Rodgers Jersey , Carrie believes his work in Ohio remains.

"LeBron has done an amazing job here in the state of Ohio, period," Carrie said. "It sets precedents for what we should do as athletes on how we are a role model to a lot of kids that we may not know, that we may not see but that know us."

Defensive end Owa Odighizuwa is getting an opportunity to resume his NFL career by signing a one year-contract with the Buffalo Bills.

Odighizuwa missed all of last season after being cut by New York Giants in August shortly after the NFL suspended him for four games for violating the league's policy on performance-enhancing substances.

Listed at 6-foot-4 and 266 pounds, he was selected by New York in the third-round of the 2015 draft out of UCLA. Odighizuwa played 18 games over two seasons with New York in a backup role and credited with four tackles on defense and two more on special teams.

The signing on Thursday comes six days before the NFL's free agency period opens.
