Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Auden Tate, Buffalo Bills wide receiver Ray-Ray McCloud, Indianapolis Colts cornerback Isaiah Rodgers and University of South Florida quarterback Jordan McCloud were among native Florida football players to help cleanup efforts following protests in Tampa, Florida:
Protests have unfurled across the country following the death of 46-year-old George Floyd while in the custody of the Minneapolis police Monday. Former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin knelt on the back of Floyd's neck for minutes, and Floyd was pronounced dead at a nearby hospital shortly afterward.
Tate and McCloud were vocal on Twitter this week:
The city of Tampa enacted a curfew until further notice from 7:30 p.m. to 6 a.m. ET.
