The NFL Players Coalition, which was established by Malcolm Jenkins and Anquan Boldin, guaranteed to give $90 million to social equity programs, however Reid will stay on his track with Kaepernick.
“The Players Coalition is a NFL-subsidized subversion gathering, so’s the reason I expelled myself from them and I’ll continue pushing ahead with Colin.”
