Jacksonville Jaguars tight end Tyler Eifert bucked the NFL’s pro-leftist activism Sunday when he used his uniform to honor retired St. Louis police Capt. David Dorn, who was killed by a rioter in St. Louis in June.
It was announced earlier this month that Eifert would use the league’s new policy allowing players to use their uniforms to honor people killed during confrontations with police to keep the memory of Dorn alive.
Eifert did not confirm or deny the report until he honored the late police officer on Sunday.
After the game, in which the Jaguars defeated the Indianapolis Colts 27-20, Eifert shared an image of Dorn’s name on his helmet on Twitter.
“Great win to start the season. Love being a part of this new team and community!” the tight end wrote.
“It was honor wearing David Dorns name on my helmet today!”
