The NFL’s attempt to bribe players with money, about $100 million, in exchange for the protests against the National Anthem to end was unsuccessful. A number of players rejected the offer and stood their ground.

TMZ reports:

The NFL recently proposed a deal in which they’d contribute $89 million over seven years to 2 organizations focused on African-American causes, as well as to the Players Coalition so they could use the money for whatever causes they wanted.

In exchange, the NFL wanted the National Anthem protests to end — but the deal seems to have failed. Many players continued to kneel and demonstrate during this week’s games.
