NFL players are expected to be more vocal and political this week in their quest to win a second Super Bowl.
The league’s annual owners meetings will be held Wednesday night, with the league’s executive committee expected to vote on a resolution supporting the players.
The resolution is expected to come out of the meeting, which will be streamed live online.
The vote on the resolution will take place at 10:30 a.m.
The meeting will also be streamed on ESPN, NFL Network, and ESPN2.
The resolution is part of the league effort to create a new video platform that will allow players to share more candid, opinionated and powerful opinions, as opposed to the watered-down content that exists today.
NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell is expected hold a press conference at 2 p.m., according to league sources.
“The players are not alone in their frustration with the way we are run,” NFL Players Association Executive Director DeMaurice Smith said in a statement.
“We are also frustrated with the fact that the NFL and its players have allowed so much of this to be swept under the rug.
We are hopeful that our players will see that there is more to do in the coming weeks and months to bring more accountability and transparency to the league and its employees, and we hope that our leaders can work together to make our players a stronger and more powerful force for good.”
In addition to the resolution, NFL Media will hold a conference call with media members, including the NFL Network’s Mike Garafolo, on Thursday at 1 p.am ET to discuss the issue.
The conference call will be available on NFL.com, the NFL app, the ESPN app, and NFL mobile.
Smith said the players are focused on the NFL, but also want to speak out about issues surrounding race and racism in the league.
“The players will be at every opportunity to speak up and make their voices heard and to advocate for change, and to support one another,” Smith said.
