The NFL may be able to get back to football soon.
The NFL and a group of players have come to an agreement on a plan to work on social injustices in African-American communities. “ESPN” reports the NFL will give around 100-million-dollars over seven years for social justice causes.
It will include money for criminal justice reform, law enforcement-community relations, and education. The deal was struck during a conference call last night. Eagles safety Malcolm Jenkins and recently retired wide receiver Anquan Boldin are the leaders of a group of around 40 players heading the effort. Some players split from the group ahead to the agreement.
The agreement does not include language calling for players to end protests during the national anthem in exchange for funds; there's no implicit quid pro quo
