NFL, players reach agreement on league's support of players community activism

Jenkins said when he started raising his fist during the national anthem, it was because of the exposure it would generate for those injustices.

"And if we're able to amplify our voices to showcase those causes, those issues, to highlight grass-roots organizations who are doing the work and need support, to tell the stories of those people who have been wronged or left out, I think that's even more valuable than the cash amount". If the NFL would donate $100 million, the players would stop their active protests during the national anthem. Demonstrating players have drawn praise from civil rights group and others, while some, including President Donald Trump, have criticized them. There are several players that have voiced their disagreement with the proposal and have withdrawn from the Players Coalition.

Eric Reid said that Jenkins has not been including Kaepernick, the founder of the original movement, in communications.

"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.
