NFL TO ALLOW PLAYERS TO HAVE SOCIAL INJUSTICE MESSAGES ON THEIR HELMETS NEXT SEASON

The NFL is about to let their players express themselves about social injustice in a new way.

Players are currently working with the league office to compile a list of approved names. It was previously believed that players would be allowed to display names or messages on their jerseys, but it sounds like the NFL wants to keep the decals to helmets only.

George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Eric Garner, Michael Brown, and Tamir Rice are just some of the people who are expected to be mentioned on the individual tribute decals.

The NFL has been incredibly strict over the years with altering or adding to uniforms. Players have been fined in the past for displaying messages on their cleats, and the outrage over that led to the league to launch the “My Cleats, My Cause” initiative so players have a specific time where they can call attention to causes they feel strongly about.
