WASHINGTON – Hot and cold therapy product maker TheraPearl has entered a licensing pact with the NFL Players Association (NFLPA)
TheraPearl said Friday that its products are designed to aid in post-workout recovery, making them a natural solution for the NFLPA and pro football players everywhere.

The company said its technology has appealed to a wide range of celebrities and athletes, including current and former NFL players.
