The two most prominent voices of consciousness inside the Philadelphia Eagles’ locker room, Malcolm Jenkins and Chris Long, left no gray area: They detest the new national anthem policy that NFL owners adopted last week.
I think it was driven by fear of a diminished bottom line … and the underlying factor is that they are afraid of the president,Long said Tuesday.
The new policy subjects teams to discipline if players do not stand or show respectduring the anthem. Players who don’t wish http://www.vancouvercanucksofficialonline.com/Adidas-Brandon-Sutter-Jersey to comply can remain in the locker room while the anthem is played.
We don’t have these types of policies for the other causes that we support, whether it is our Salute to Service, breast cancer awareness or anything else,Jenkins said. It’s just when you start talking about black folks. It’s disheartening.
Jenkins, who is African-American, and Long, one of the few white players to speak about the issue, both said they are unsure if they will be on the sideline or remain in the locker room during the anthem.
So it Dale Hawerchuk Jersey seemed like it would be a futile exercise for Agholor, who’s 6-feet, 198 pounds.
Yet he worked diligently with Groh, who showed Agholor video of players like Detroit’s Golden Tate, New England’s Julian Edelman and Brandon Sutter Authentic Jersey Dallas’ Cole Beasley.
Groh’s strength as our receivers coach last year was being able to explain the game on all different aspects, Agholor said. He watches tapes on some of http://www.winnipegjetsofficialonline.com/Adidas-Dale-Hawerchuk-Jersey the guys in this league. He shows you different things that you can do, that he sees in other players that have done it… He’ll show me techniques that I did already that these guys did well that would help me excel in the slot.
Agholor was so impressive during OTAs last spring that the Eagles traded Matthews to Buffalo last August for starting cornerback Ronald Darby. Agholor then had the season of his career, including a team-high nine receptions for 84 yards in the Eagles’ Super Bowl victory.
