Through identical statements released on Twitter, 49ers safety Eric Reid and Dolphins safety Michael Thomas announced that they are withdrawing from the coalition of NFL players that have been working to advance social justice causes.


The coalition, which previously sent a memo to the NFL laying out exactly how the league could go about supporting their mission, has reportedly received a proposal from the NFL that promises $100 million in donations to various causes. According to ESPN, not all of players in the coalition are in agreement with the proposal.
