The Players Coalition, which put out a statement on [George] Floyd this weekend, was established at a time when NFL players' protesting of police brutality was a hot-button issue beyond the playing field of an NFL stadium. While problems continue to exist on a larger scale, the group has worked at a micro level, sending groups of players on social justice reform trips focused on learning more about the landscape to better focus their efforts, for example. It hasn't just been a trending topic that dissipated with time in NFL locker rooms, but the latest instance of an unarmed black man losing his life at the hands of police officers has again brought the larger issue to the forefront of the American consciousness.
