New Orleans Saints safety Malcolm Jenkins returned to Philadelphia to participate in protests after the killing of George Floyd, an unarmed black man who died while in Minneapolis police custody Monday:
The 46-year-old Floyd was restrained by four former Minneapolis police officers, including Derek Chauvin, who pressed his knee into the back of Floyd's neck. Floyd was pronounced dead at a nearby hospital.
Chauvin was arrested and charged with third-degree murder and second-degree manslaughter Friday.
Jenkins posted an impassioned video to Twitter on Wednesday:
The 32-year-old played for the Philadelphia Eagles from 2014 through last season before signing a four-year, $32 million deal with the Saints in March. Jenkins spent the beginning of his NFL career in New Orleans between 2009 and 2013 after the organization selected him 14th overall in '09.
Jenkins previously protested social injustice by raising a fist during the national anthem.
