The NFL and its players are close to finalizing a deal that would commit $100 million to helping with issues of social injustice in the community, according to a report. ESPN’s Jim Trotter and Jason Reid have been told NFL officials have submitted a final draft of the proposal to the Players Coalition, which is a group of about 40 players who have negotiated with the league office. The deal would call for a total of roughly $100 million to be contributed toward funding causes that are “critically important to African-American communities.” Trotter reports that the partnership is expected to be finalized despite at least two players being dissatisfied with the solution that the league and players have come up with. On Wednesday, San Francisco 49ers defensive back Eric Reid and Miami Dolphins safety Michael Thomas announced that they are bowing out of the Players Coalition.
