  • Eagles' Malcolm Jenkins will not raise fist during national anthem Sunday

According to ESPN, Eagles cornerback Malcolm Jenkins and former NFL receiver Anquan Boldin guided the league to this package of causes, which includes criminal justice reform, law enforcement/community relations and education. The league understands that some players will continue to protest, but it is seeking to move forward anyway'.

Reid added that the group relayed concerns to Jenkins about the way the Players Coalition was being managed.

Amid declining viewership numbers, as well as pressure from team owners and league sponsors, the NFL met with players this week, and came away with an agreement that some hope will help to end the protests, the Chicago Tribune reports.

"There are things guys have been working on and talking with the league about how we can amplify the voices of the players to draw attention to the injustices and issues of equality that we're trying to highlight - help us with solutions and try to make our communities better", Jenkins said following the Eagles' win over the Panthers on October 12.

According to the Tribune, however, some owners have begun to discuss requiring players to stay in the locker room during the anthem next season, eliminating their employees' platform for dissent.

'I dont have a foundation so [I] have chosen to support my brother @kaepernick7 foundation @yourrightscamp for #MyCauseMyCleats, ' Matthews wrote of Kaepernick, who has remained unsigned since opting out of his contract with the 49ers in March. He indicated Wednesday that if the potential partnership with the league can properly "amplify the voices of players" when it comes to the issues that they have been trying to draw attention to, then he would no longer see the need to protest. The goal of the coalition was to bring light to topics such as social injustice and protests around the NFL. In addition, there would be other fundraising opportunities, including telethons and auctions of jerseys worn in games. The deal distributes 25 percent of funds to the United Negro College Fund, 25 percent to Dream Corps, and 50 percent to the Players Coalition. But during an afternoon call, Jenkins asked that the commissioner and the owners continue to stand with the players and allow them to do important work in the community.

Jenkins calls the plans "significant".

"I feel like I would be a hypocrite not to use my platform to speak up for people who are facing oppression in this country", he told Slate. The owners whom Goodell and Vincent serve could have attempted to push through new rules regarding the anthem in the National Football League game-operations manual during offseason committee meetings.

The owners were selected based on their public statements about Kaepernick or players protesting during the pre-game national anthem. "I won't accuse Malcolm of directly lying to me, because I don't think he's that type of guy".
