Malcolm Jenkins explains why he puts hold on protests

Eric Reid, Michael Thomas Withdraw from the Players Coalition

The league submitted the final draft of the proposal to players on Monday that would contribute almost $100 million to causes considered important to African-American communities.

Malcolm Jenkins believes he has done his part to raise awareness of racial injustices and inequality enough to end his raised-fist demonstration during the national anthem.

Reid says that he was asked if he would stop kneeling for the anthem in light of the NFL's proposal, according to ESPN's Jim Trotter and Jason Reid. The owners then held their regularly scheduled fall meeting and left without enacting a rule requiring players to stand for the anthem. The league arranged a meeting with the Players Coalition in October, in the wake of the president's comments about player protests, to discuss the protests and how to address them. "And obviously through this year and talking with the league and what they've kind of proposed, I feel like he has presented a bigger and better platform to continue to raise that awareness and continue to fluctuate positive change".

Reid opened up Thursday night about his decision to pull himself out of the Players Coalition and discussions with the National Football League this week, along with Dolphins safety Michael Thomas and Chargers lineman Russell Okung.

"That's just an individual decision for me", Jenkins said.

It's unclear where things go from here, but the NFL's offer is reportedly still on the table.

In response, the boy's mother filed a legal note tearing down Epic's lawsuit and calling for it to be thrown out. Moreover, these aimbots are set to attack Twitch Streamers, ensuring they can not win the game.

"The reason I started raising my fist in the first place is to draw awareness to injustices in this country, disenfranchised people of color".

"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.

Jenkins said Thursday he most recently spoke with Kaepernick several weeks ago and that he hopes to work with the former San Francisco quarterback and Reid moving forward.

'We will continue to have dialogue with the league to find equitable solutions but without Malcolm and Anquan as our representative, ' the statement concluded.

The unprecedented agreement calls for the league to contribute $89 million over seven years to projects dealing with criminal justice reform, law enforcement/community relations and education. "So it would really be no skin off the owners' backs: They would just move the money from those programs to this one". "Being able to talk about our causes, tell stories about real people, and, like I said, amplify the voices of these organizations that are grassroots and nobody knows about that are actually doing the work - being able to bring them up to this platform I think is important". What we didn't have was a conversation with players in the coalition based on some of the responses that we got from the league.
