New York Jets strong safety Jamal Adams and other star players such as Patrick Mahomes and Saquon Barkley send the NFL a message.

The New York Jets strong safety Jamal Adams has maintained an active Twitter account over the last week. What’s different about the activity now as opposed to during contract rumor times is that these tweets aren’t cryptic.

He’s been extremely vocal about the recent happenings in the country, as have other NFL stars. Now, they’ve officially come together in order to get a message across to the league.

The 1:11 minute video features Adams, Patrick Mahomes, Saquon Barkley and other stars come together to remember George Floyd and others who have died at the hands of police enforcement as of late and in recent years.

Also of note is the players’ wish for the NFL to admit wrongdoing when not allowing its players to peacefully protest through the years, and to publicly state that, “Black Lives Matter.”

Adams also quote-tweeted the video with an inside revelation about how he handled societal issues like these in the past.

“When I was younger, I used to be scared to use my voice because I wanted to be liked by everyone,” Adams said. “Life lessons & sports have changed my outlook on life. I will not hold back on the truth. I will fight & hold everybody accountable until it’s right. BLACK LIVES MATTER!”

In addition to the video, Adams has publicly admitted disappointment in Drew Brees and again brought up Brees’s name coupled with Jake Fromm, a rookie quarterback for the Buffalo Bills who also found himself mired in controversy after screenshots of texts revealed that he used the term “elite white people” in a conversation.

“You and Drew aren’t really sorry,” Adams tweeted. “Save the bullshit ass apologies. The truth just came out, and you two aren’t the only ones!”

A few hours prior to the official release of the players’ video, the NFL tweeted a message that they “stand with the black community because Black Lives Matter.”
