Eagles Safety Malcolm Jenkins Won't Raise Fist During National Anthem Anymore

Eric Reid, Michael Thomas Withdraw from the Players Coalition

The Washington Post reports that a source close to the negotiations says the agreement will provide almost $90 million for causes deemed important by the players between the agreement's signing and 2023, with a particular focus on issues facing the African-American community. The NFL also plans to create a platform similar to their breast cancer awareness and Salute to Service campaigns that would spotlight social justice issues, Jenkins said.

Others think the deal is fundamentally in good faith, stressing that players can kneel or stand regardless of the league's personal preferences. The owners then held their regularly scheduled fall meeting and left without enacting a rule requiring players to stand for the anthem.

Jenkins said his decision to stop protesting did not come as part of a deal with the NFL.

Reid was the first player to kneel alongside Colin Kaepernick, the embattled former San Francisco 49ers quarterback who started the protests and remains a free agent since opting out of his contract in March.

Reid said he received a text from Jenkins on Wednesday morning asking him if he would be comfortable ending the demonstrations if the National Football League made a donation to the player coalition.

"Roger Goodell is trying to make this as easy for the owners to agree to as possible so that-again, their goal is to end the protests", Reid said.

District Judge Timothy Kelly, one of Trump's two new D.C. appointees, is slated to hear the case at 4:30 p.m. She said rolling back existing CFPB rules is trickier and would take longer, but that's also possible.

Reid, once he heard the NFL's plan to siphon money from other causes toward the new one, scoffed at Jenkins' proposal to quit the protest. To raise up these grassroots organizations that need support to do the work. "There have been a lot of conversations that have been had internally between players, and I'll keep those conversations private, but I'm obviously open to speaking with all these players".

Reid and Thomas said they will continue to have talks with the league to "find equitable solutions" but without Jenkins and Boldin's representation.

"We would rather not be demonstrating or protesting", Jenkins said to SI in September. Jenkins has lobbied in Harrisburg for a Pennsylvania law that would make it easier to seal criminal records, and he joined a group of players previous year on a visit to Capitol Hill in Washington to discuss the cash-bail system, among other things, with lawmakers.

Jenkins started raising his fist during the national anthem last season. Later Wednesday, sources told ESPN that the coalition and the NFL agreed in principle for the league to contribute $89 million over seven years to projects dealing with criminal justice reform, law enforcement/community relations and education.

"The opportunity to use the NFL's stage will draw more money than we would ever be able to do on our own", Jenkins said.
