Now that the NFL has become a pulpit for mostly leftist politics, teams and players are being encouraged to wear uniform decals to honor people killed in clashes with police officers.
Not every player, it seems, is on the same page with vilifying police officers, though.
The Pittsburgh Steelers have chosen to wear the name of Antwon Rose Jr. on their helmets for the entirety of the 2020 season, the team announced Monday. The black 17-year-old was shot and killed by a white East Pittsburgh police officer in 2018 after running from a car involved in a drive-by shooting.
“This year the NFL is allowing players to wear helmet decals to honor victims of systemic racism,” the Steelers said. “Players could select the name of an individual to wear on their helmet and the Steelers players and coaches united as one to wear a single name on the back of their helmets and hats for the entire 2020 season
