One of the players who’s been at the forefront of the NFL’s social justice movement is Malcolm Jenkins, who issued a thoughtful statement in response to the snub on Tuesday.
On Wednesday, with the media throng gathered around him, Jenkins refused to speak. Instead, he used a series of signs to communicate with the media.
Here’s a video of this exchange.
