Stallworth, a former NFL wide receiver, said, “The number one stated goal was to bring awareness to a lot of these issues and again, its a broad spectrum of issues. Again, it’s not just police brutality and community policing.”

“It’s also, again from what I’m hearing from players directly involved in these talks–they’re telling me it’s also about the gender pay gap, it’s also about housing discrimination, they have so many things that they are interested in and advocating for and they want the NFL to take ownership in and help be able to use the NFL’s platform.”

“Not just the players platform but the NFL’s platform and that from what I am hearing is a big conversation.” (RELATED: NFL Commissioner Tells Owners ‘Everyone Should Stand’ For Anthem)
