The NFL will wade deeper into the waters of social justice activism this season by allowing players to wear helmet decals honoring victims of perceived systemic racism this season, according to reports.
A league source told Jason Reid of ESPN’s The Undefeated that players will be given the option to choose names or initials of black men who died during fatal encounters with police offers.
The players can choose the name or initials of a victim of “police violence” and wear it throughout the entire 2020 season, the ESPN report said.
