Philadelphia Eagles safety Malcolm Jenkins has responded to a memo NFL commissioner Roger Goodell sent to all 32 NFL teams about discussing a solution to players protesting during the national anthem before games.  

Jenkins said Tuesday whatever the league decides won’t prevent players from making their voices heard for social causes, via ESPN’s Tim McManus:

“I think we’ve seen even over the last year that you can take a player out of the league, you can threaten to do whatever you want to do, that’s not going to deter players from doing what’s right, or doing what they believe is right. You might be able to change the manner in which that looks but I don’t see players stopping their pursuit for justice or equality.”

This article will be updated to provide more information on this story as it becomes available.
