NFL Likely to Allow Players to Honor Victims of Police Brutality with Helmet Tributes and More

According to reports, the NFL is likely to allow its players to honor victims of police brutality with helmet tributes.


ESPN reported on a memo from the league inviting players to sport decals bearing the names of victims of police violence such as Breonna Taylor, George Floyd, and others.

"Each player will have the option to honor an individual by displaying that person's name via a decal on the back of their helmet,"  the memo reads.

"Players will be offered a list of names and short biographical information to help guide their decision-making, however, they can also select a victim of systemic racism who is not represented on this list."

The league is also permitting players to have decals bearing the names of slain on-duty police officers. While the league hasn't made the call official, sources close to the situation say it "sounds like it's going to happen."


In the past, the NFL has honored players and former owners who have passed away in addition to honoring servicemen and servicewomen during the annual "Salute to Service" in November.
