The NFL and a group of players reached an agreement in principle late Wednesday night to partner on a plan to address social justice issues considered important to African-American communities, sources told ESPN.
On Wednesday, Eagles safety Malcolm Jenkins hinted at possibly putting a stop to his protests during the National Anthem after the proposed deal the NFL made with the Players Coalition.
"If we're able to amplify our voices to showcases those causes, those issues, to highlight grassroots organizations who are doing the work and need support or tell the stories of those people who are wronged and being left out, I feel like that's even more valuable than a cash amount", Jenkins said. There's also a plan to pay for local projects, with owners offering $250,000 annually to social justice causes and players matching up to $250,000 as well.

And he has company with others withdrawing from the Players Coalition as well.
"It wasn't a conversation that led me to believe he would walk away from what we created", Jenkins said of Reid.
"There are things guys have been working on and talking with the league about how we can amplify the voices of the players to draw attention to the injustices and issues of equality that we're trying to highlight - help us with solutions and try to make our communities better", Jenkins said following the Eagles' win over the Panthers on October 12. It's a hard to decision to stop protesting, Jenkins said, but he added that the NFL's willingness to promote social justice work is gratifying. This week, the coalition hired The Hopewell Fund to oversee and advise the group, which hopes to work with grass-roots and nonprofit organizations. Not only with the money that they've put up, because I think that's probably the least important part of the deal, but with the resources and platform that they proposed to build. "So it would really be no skin off the owners' backs: They would just move the money from those programs to this one".
"So, for me, that's something I felt like we've accomplished and something I can feel proud of".
