The plan does not include a directive to end the ongoing protests in which players raise awareness of inequality and police brutality against minorities by sitting, kneeling, or raising a fist during the national anthem. San Francisco 49ers safety Eric Reid and Miami Dolphins safety Michael Thomas said they are withdrawing by releasing the same statement on Wednesday.
Trump has branded the league as "weak" for not requiring players to stand during "The Star-Spangled Banner".
Reid said that he is considering forming his own organization to work toward change. Commissioner Roger Goodell, believing that an agreement was at hand, was furious when ESPN reported that players were breaking off, according to one source.
Trumps light national Christmas tree for first time
More than 150 volunteers from around the country spent more than 1,600 hours decorating the White House. The decorations continue a tradition that dates back decades.
Jenkins explained the fundraising plan earlier Thursday as the "injustices" version of the NFL's other worthy campaigns.
The agreement calls for national funds to be allocated accordingly: 25 percent to the United Negro College Fund; 25 percent to Dream Corps; and 50 percent to the Players Coalition, which has filed 501 (c)(3) and 501 (c)(4) paperwork for nonprofit status as a fiscally sponsored project. The last time we had conversations with [commissioner Roger] Goodell and Troy Vincent, Michael Thomas and Eric Reid were on that call. He's going to present them with a proposal saying, 'Look you really don't have to do anything. But I will say he's misled us. He indicated Wednesday that if the potential partnership with the league can properly "amplify the voices of players" when it comes to the issues that they have been trying to draw attention to, then he would no longer see the need to protest. "Everybody kind of agreed to that".
Reid, who knelt beside Colin Kaepernick last season, additionally told ESPN: "Malcolm continues to have conversations on his own with the National Football League, and the Players Coalition is his organization". But I will say he's misled us. "But none of the conversations, for me at least, have been any that I've taken personal or felt like I didn't want to work with the group, even if we disagreed". "But again, we would have no equity in the organization".

Bhansali has also been questioned on why he screened the movie for the media before getting the CBFC clearance. They recently applied for 3D certification.
The allegations Reid made about the source of the funds for the proposed social justice deal have the potential to derail any efforts the league makes, if they're proven true - especially because it would apparently take money away from a program (Salute to Service) that ostensibly is for "supporting military personnel" and "raising awareness for the sacrifices they make on our behalf", and numerous criticisms directed at the protesting players have been based on how protests during the anthem allegedly disrespect the military.
Local allocations haven't been announced just yet.
