Eric Kendricks issued a statement criticizing the lack of action from the NFL, who issued a bland and vague statement in response to the George Floyd situation.
.@NFL what actual steps are you taking to support the fight for justice and system reform?” he wrote. “Your statement said nothing. Your league is built on black athletes. Vague answers do nothing. Let the players know what you’re ACTUALLY doing.
“And we know what silence means.”
The tweet included an illustration with a stylized NFL shield logo, with the words “We Want Answers.”
Roger Goodell referenced the league’s “power of our platform in communities and as part of the fabric of American society” in the statement.
