NFL on Verge of Finalizing $90 Million “Settlement” with Players over Social Justice, Anthem

National Football League owners are expected to finalize an apparent settlement with the newly formed Players Coalition during the annual owners meeting next week.

The deal, which was reached last November, calls for $89 million in contributions to various social justice causes including Van Jones’s Dream Corps and 501(c)4 activities directed by the Players Coalition. 2ndVote has previously reported on donations funneled to anti-Trump “resistance”organizations tied to liberal billionaire George Soros through the NFL Players Association.

The Washington Times reports the deal may be designed to quell the controversial anthem protests, despite the league’s denial of any intent to officially address the issue. However, at least one of the protesting players has said “he would stop raising a fist after helping broker the agreement.”
