National Football League shares details of social justice initiative

The plan to siphon funds from other causes and shift them toward social justice initiatives was a collaborative decision between the National Football League and the Players Coalition. The memo also outlines that an initial $3 million will come from the NFL Foundation and that future monies will come from "cause related events & consumer products sales, auctions and other promotional sources".

- Philadelphia Eagles safety Malcolm Jenkins says he will no longer raise his fist in protest during the national anthem before games.

"We look forward to scheduling a meeting with the NFL to discuss actions that can and must be taken now to address the police shooting crisis which lies front and center for numerous League's players, for our organizations and for the nation".

Jenkins is one of the co-founders of the Players' Coalition.

Kaepernick, of course, began the kneeling demonstrations in the 2016 preseason, and Reid was the first player to join the protests. Los Angeles Chargers offensive tackle Russell Okung followed Reid, and posted on Twitter Thursday that he encourages players to "continue to exercise their constitutional rights".

The NFL is committing $90 million to a new social justice initiative that supports efforts and programs to combat social inequality.

The league's memo on Friday disputed that.

In a separate memo sent to team community relations directors, Anna Isaacson, the NFL's senior vice president of social responsibility, stated the three-segment initiative will include input from players and team owners. She noted financial commitments, use of government resources, and promoting community endeavors by the players.

Isaacson wrote that the NFL will present to teams a "more thorough" plan at league meetings in March that will focus on local teams.
