The NFL and the Players Association are working together to discuss social activism by players. The two sides met on Tuesday, issuing a joint statement saying they engaged in a productive conversation and are committed to an ongoing dialogue. The meeting included NFL commissioner Roger Goodell, NFLPA executive director DeMaurice Smith, several team owners and players. Last week, the NFL held a meeting with players and team owners to discuss the national anthem and player protests. The conversation about the players’ interest to address social issues continued this week.
