The NFL announced this week they will pay $100 million over 7 years to social justice causes.
This comes after players continue their kneeling protest of the US National Anthem.
But players are reporting the league is taking money from breast cancer and the military to pay for the funding.
“In the discussion that we had, Malcolm conveyed to us—based on discussions that he had with the NFL — that the money would come from funds that are already allocated to breast cancer awareness and Salute to Service,” Reid told Slate.
Salute to Service supports military personnel and raises awareness of their sacrifices.
“So it would really be no skin off the owners’ backs: They would just move the money from those programs to this one,” he continued.
