Philadelphia Eagles safety Malcolm Jenkins used his time with the media Wednesday to relay messages on signs instead of talking, via Sheil Kapadia of The Athletic:
One sign held by Jenkins read, "you aren't listening," while others listed statistics that support criminal justice reform, which he later displayed on Twitter:
Jenkins was a captain on the Eagles squad that won the Super Bowl last season, but President Donald Trump canceled the team's trip to the White House on Tuesday, saying that only a few players were going to attend.
The 30-year-old safety countered with his thoughts on Twitter:
Although Jenkins didn't take a knee during the national anthem like some others around the league, he did raise his fist as a form of protest against racial injustice.
He and Boldin also visited Congress last year to discuss community-police relations.
